“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
If worry was an Olympic sport, we would probably all be gold medalists!
Even with all that we have it seems like there is no lack of things to worry about. Our families, money, jobs, safety, security, health, and on…and on… it goes. But our Father holds all of life in the palm of His hand. There is nothing that escapes Him or is beyond his loving care.
Take some time to thank Him that He is all knowing, fully in control, and fully loving. Confess the areas of unbelief: the areas you struggle to trust Him and try to control for yourself. With fresh eyes and a full heart surrender these things to Him again.
Ask Him to show you how he is in the details, caring for you. Invite Him into every space in you that is fearful or anxious and pray for His comfort. Also ask for the wisdom you need to follow Him today, boldly and with love.
