Worry and Fear (4)

Some people wake up every morning and start to worry about what will happen that day or what will happen in the future. When our minds are filled with worry and fear, we cannot enjoy the blessings that God gives us each day.

Maybe you woke up this morning and thought about today. You started worrying about having money to buy groceries. Or maybe you worried about whether you can provide warm clothes for your family. Jesus knows that we worry, and He wants us to trust God. That’s why He said in our Bible verses, “…don’t worry about the things you need to live — what you will eat, drink, or wear” (verse 25a). Jesus also said in verse 27, “You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it.” Worrying doesn’t help solve our problems. It is a waste of time.

God knows all about us. He wants us to talk to Him about our worries and fears. God wants us to read about His promises in the Bible. When we depend on Him, He will give us His peace.
