Worry Not

Matthew 6:34Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
34 Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

We hear the words, we think about them, don’t worry, but for so many of us, me in many areas, I still worry. Jesus went on to ask, “Who can add to your own life by worrying?”

Verse 25 tells us not to worry about our life or what we will drink; or about what to wear. We all know that God knows everything, every moment that was and is to come.

How do we not worry? We have to be listen more for the Holy Spirit’s guidance. God has to be first everyday not just the church day. In essence as other scripture teaches, we must pick up the cross DAILY and follow Jesus.
There’s a difference between concern and worry. Concern says this is an issue and I’m gonna deal with it and with God’s help I can get through it. Worry says “I don’t know” I don’t know what’s gonna happen, I don’t know if I’ll get through it. I just don’t know. I want to emphasize that worry is one of the Devils greatest weapons. It will steal your joy, steal your contentment, steal your happiness. We become so worried about tomorrow we can’t live for today. We worry about things that never happen.

God said in Proverbs 3:5&6 Trust the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. And worry says I don’t believe he can do that.
Worry exhibit’s a lack of trust in God. When we worry, we don’t trust God. When we worry it’s like saying, I got a problem and I don’t think God can handle it.   We need to be living for the kingdom. That means we need to give our lives totally to Christ and live for him. We need to put Christ above everything and everyone else, in our life. Above our families, our jobs, our money, our possessions, above everything. God has to be first.
