Not to Worry

When you choose to worry, you are choosing not to trust God.You wouldn’t rebuff someone who offered assistance if your car conked out on the highway. You wouldn’t refuse a neighbor who offered to help you move furniture out of the U-Haul into your new house. It would be an insult to say “No thanks” in these situations. So, if you woudn’t want to be impolite to strangers, why do you insult God by refusing His offer to relieve you of worries?

When you continue to worry about your problems, you are choosing to reject God’s offer to comfort you. You are stubbornly holding on to your anxiety and foolishly declining God’s help. Either you want to keep worrying, or you don’t trust God.

Isn’t it about time that you finally concede the fact that you can’t handle your worries by yourself? Isn’t it about time to accept the help and comfort that God offers?

“So don’t worry about having enough food or drink or clothing…. Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs, and he will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern. Matthew 6:31-33
