How much do you worry? I am not asking if you do or not, but how much worrying do you do? About your finances? Family? Relationships? Health? Think about it. Did you know that the result of worry is not us solving our problems, but is us sinning? WHAT???
Worry is not a by product of how smart we are, but really how selfish. Think about it; we worry because we think we need to figure out a solution to our problems. Worry is often planning without God. It is like we start to believe that our circumstances and our problems are too much for God...
The moment when we feel like we are at the end of our resources is not when we should start to worry, but it is the time we need to trust God more. When we do this, it will lead us to the place of “worrilessness," the only place where there is less worry. Not because God will do what we want, but that He is aware of the situation and He is with us wherever we are and whatever we are going through. There is no greater giver of peace than knowing God is with you. Maybe this is why Jesus said this:
“Can any of you add one moment to his life span by worrying?”Matthew 6:27 CSB
So then worry is nothing more than a signal that we need to trust God more and worry less...Get it?!
In His grip,
