Do Not Worry

“Therefore, I say to you do not worry…”  (from Matthew 6:25-34)

Consider the flowers of the field and the birds of the air. Jesus asks, “Are you not of more value than they?” Jesus wonders, “Why do you worry?” He knows your needs; your worries, your fears, your heart. He repeats, “Do not worry.”Jesus says, “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.”

 Like Peter, we can walk on water…or we can sink.

Where our focus is makes all the difference.

  6. How did you know I needed to read this particular scripture again this morning? Of course you didn’t but the holy spirit did and spoke to your heart to write about it just for me! You see, I had spent a good amount of time in prayer last night worshipping the Lord and then petitioning Him for our immediate (as due today) needs as well as what has to be paid in the next 2wks, knowing I don’t have it and unless a miracle happens, won’t get it in time. He always does come through.
    But last night, on my knees, I reminded the Lord of His promises to care for us–just as this scripture does. I know He will come thru, although why it always has to be last minute,I don’ t know. So thank you for another scripture to remind me of His loving care and promise.

    One of the “secrets” to a worry-free life is to understand the difference between what we can control and cannot control. Do not worry about what you cannot control – you are only wasting time and energy. When we realize how little of life we can control, there is very little left for us to worry about. On the other hand, it seems to me that being prepared to deal with potential consequences is prudent. For example, we can’t control the weather, but we can take an umbrella or rain jacket with us when the clouds are dark and threatening.

  9. Amen! You are the second blog I have read today that mentioned Peter walking on water (warrioress @ http://www.lifeofafemalebiblewarrior.wordpress.com also posted about it). I also was getting the message from God this morning not to worry or be afraid but to wait on Him and keep His way (from Psalm 37). Thank you and God bless you!!
