“Do not worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.”
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by life. Bills, obligations, conflicts and difficulties abound! It can feel like the weight of the whole world rests on our shoulders.
Fortunately, God created this existence so that we only have to face it, from moment to moment. It’s only in our minds that we start to bear the burden of tomorrow today.
Of course, having plans and goals is an important part of living a productive life, by which we can be of help and service to each other. Jesus didn’t say not to think at all about tomorrow — just not to worry!
It’s been said that worry is like paying interest on a loan we haven’t received. Worry is living in fear over something that hasn’t even happened yet, and very likely may not even happen.
The Bible teaches us to be calm and know God is in control. Worry is an expression of doubt — lack of faith that God is at work.
For many of us, worry can become a way of life, whether it’s learned from people in our lives or earned through past experiences or trauma.
However, the truth remains that worry only separates us from the peace and joy of knowing and trusting that God is in charge — today and in the days to come.
God has taken care of us and been with us through everything so far. What would make us think God won’t be with us tomorrow?
Rest easy knowing God is with you today. Leave tomorrow to tomorrow.
