Don’t Worry About It

black-woman-stressedMatthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Worrying is natural, but not worrying is supernatural.  The natural state of worry is thinking and rethinking about something with much care and anxiety.  Supernatural is the state of casting all of your cares upon the LORD.  Supernatural is when God puts his super abundant wisdom and abilities upon your natural way of doing things, thereby removing worry far from you.  God has already worked out all of your tomorrows.  When you take Him out of the box and allow Him to have free course in your life, He will take care of you. Doubt and unbelief cause worry and are hindrances to you receiving what God has promised you.  The man who lacks faith in God’s word should not expect to receive anything from Him.  Your heavenly Father knows that you have need of things, but you must ask Him for them in faith.   Take no thought means don’t think about it; don’t worry about it.  Is He suggesting that you not think about your future?  Certainly not, what Jesus is saying is to not waste your energy thinking about it.  Instead, give Him first place in your thought life and live as He wants you to.  Then you will see that your everyday concerns will be met.

Whatever you must do today, there is a grace for that.  Accept the grace and make it a sweatless day.
