You name it – I am sure that someone out there is fretting about it. We live in a world plagued with phobias. We may look at some of these issues that others are overly concerned about, and these are not issues that trouble us.
We may look at issues that vexed us when we were young, and they no longer present a problem to us now, and we think how silly it was to have made a mountain out of a mole hill.
This begs the question, “Why do we worry about what we do now, and should we really be worrying about it?”
In Philippians 4:6 it states, “Be anxious for nothing….” Matthew 6:25 says, “…do not worry about your life…” That pretty much covers EVERYTHING. We are not to worry about anything because God has said that He would look after us.
This, of course, does not preclude us from doing what we are supposed to do, as God has commanded throughout the Scriptures. But, we do what we can and place the rest of the burden upon the shoulders of God.
Knowing what we know, worrying demonstrates a LACK OF FAITH. That’s right… to worry is to not trust God. It is not believing that He will do what He says that He will do. When God says that He will not let time and chance happen to us and that He will provide for our needs — we can rest assured that God CAN and WILL do this.
If we trust in God, we will find a relief from the stresses that once weighed heavily upon us. To not do this, is to remove our focus from the Kingdom of God and succumb to a device of Satan.
