Do Not Be Anxious for Tomorrow

We can easily get anxious  and overly concerned  about all sorts of things.     But,  all of our worrying  has no power  to change the situation.     Most of our worries are related  to what will happen  in our future.     The future is something we have absolutely no real control over.     We can’t change a single thing  that “might” happen.

If we spend all of our energies  fretting about the future,  we won’t have the ability  to live well — just for this moment — just for today.      Whatever is happening  right now  in our lives  is what we need  to face well — with a true faith,  hope,  and love.     If we worry all the time,  we aren’t having the faith we need.     If we’re always fretting  about the future,  we’re tearing down our hope  in God.     And,  all this anxiety  is an indication that we are not trusting  in the love of God for us  as we rightly should.     When we’re not trusting God’s love for us,  we are disabling our ability  to love God  for all that He has already done  for us  in Christ Jesus.

We definitely will have to face all sorts  of problems  every day of our lives on earth.     They will be  “challenges”  to say the least.     And,  in the heat of the moment,  we will wonder  how we’ll get through  “this one”.     But,  there is always one factor in every problem  that is constant.     It never,  ever has changed.     That factor is  that God is still God.     And,  the God of all  loves us.     That love has been proven  on the cross,  once and for all.

In all our stresses,  our Lord and Savior  wants us  to keep His eternal love for us  foremost  in all of our living.     That is why Jesus tells us  in Matthew 6:33-34,

Seek first  His kingdom  and His righteousness;  and all these things  shall be added to you.

Therefore  do not be anxious for tomorrow;  for tomorrow  will care for itself.     Each day  has enough trouble of its own.

This is not some  “pie-in-the-sky”  philosophy  or wishful thinking.     Neither is this a  “do-it-yourself”  solution.     This is God Almighty  helping us  to get our priorities straight  for facing each day  in faith,  hope,  and love.

As we look  to our Lord  for our daily needs,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  You provide for every living creature  on this earth.     Help us  to always keep You  as  ‘Number One’  in all  of our living.”

Love,
Margaret
