Don’t Worry About Tomorrow

Question about future of Ukraine.

God makes it clear in His Word that He does not want us to be worried or anxious about anything, instead He wants us to trust, and have faith that He will be more than enough, and for us to be confident that He will come through in every situation we are faced with. In Matthew 6:25 Jesus said, “therefore, I tell you, don’t worry about your life—what you will eat or drink; or about your body—what you will wear.” The verse goes on to talk about how God cares for the birds of the air, and how we are more valuable to God and the birds. It can be easy to slip into a state of panic. When we see our money is running funny, job layoffs etc… Not only is worry a sin before God, but it is one of the primary sources of stress. When we are stressed out that indicates to God that we feel He doesn’t care about us or is unable to provide for us. Yes, look around us, the world is in a state of worry and panic. But if you are in Christ then that means God will provide for you all that you need and add to your life when you prioritize Him (see Matthew 6:33). The biggest evidence of God’s love is John 3:16—the fact that God gave us Jesus, His only Son to free us from the bondage of sin, and that we may freely serve Him. If God did not withhold His only son from us, what makes us think He will withhold any good thing from us? Faith in God does not bring worry, but peace that only comes from Christ that surpasses all understanding.

You may be thinking, “how can I possibly have peace with the current events that has the world in mass hysteria?” Well, it’s not the current events per se that affects us. It’s how we respond to the events that is happening that leads us to be anxious and worry. No one can know how long this pandemic is going to last. Even though we can’t know what will happen in the times ahead, it doesn’t stop us from pondering on these things, a lot. In fact, we can get so consumed about what’s going to happen in  the future that it impacts us negatively in the present. Have you ever thought about something so long that it started to bother you? Bothered to you the point where you couldn’t sleep, eat, or concentrate? Have you become so consume about something, you can’t keep your mind on God? If these things are happening, then you have allowed fear to reign in your life instead of God. And, this decision is dangerous, not only can it lead to making irrational decisions or has the opposite effect where it paralyzes you to the point that you make no decision at all. So, I encourage you man/woman of God put your trust in God. After all, He is the only One who is omniscient, and knows what’s to come……
