So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34
God can give you the grace—the energy, the zeal, the passion—to do whatever you need to do…and to do it with a good attitude.
Why are we concerned with the future?
Our minds cannot grasp uncertainty. It is filled with ego entanglements around security, stability and preparing for raining days. The Lord Jesus asked his disciples, can any of you by worrying, grow an inch taller?
It’s funny to think that the Lord would acknowledge his friends fears and concerns in such a confrontational way. But sometimes it’s exactly what we need because it serves as a reality check.
We are not God, and most of what happens outside of our inner life is out of our control. Even when we prepare for an exam in school, we won’t know what exactly is on the test… so why not seek to trust that things will work out. Times of stress or feeling overwhelmed are times to reflect on the sustenance and provision of God in our lives. Gratitude fills the heart with hope and faith, as tomorrow unfolds. It important to remember how the Lord has came through for us in the past, or how we thought we could not make it on other occasions… this builds trust and gives our anxious hearts rest.
Thank you lord God for being the lover of our souls. For healing our hearts and walking with us through life. Thank you coming through for us despite of where our eyes were fixed. I pray you help us manage our worries and concerns in a healthy way. May we trust and rely on you for help at all times, even with the most minimal of tasks. In Jesus name, Amen.
