Corrie Ten Boom: “Worry doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrows, it only empties today of its strength”.
“This is why I tell you to never be worried about your life, for all that you need will be provided, such as food, water, clothing—everything your body needs. Isn’t there more to your life than a meal? Isn’t your body more than clothing? Look at all the birds—do you think they worry about their existence? They don’t plant or reap or store up food, yet your heavenly Father provides them each with food. Aren’t you much more valuable to your Father than they?” Matthew 6: 25-26
Jesus tells that the birds of the air, “They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them.” They do nothing but God takes time to feed them and provide for them. This doesn’t mean we live anyhow and expect God to come to our aid. The whole point here is don’t break your head, get stressed out and be anxious about something God has already worked out for you. Why? Because, your hugely greater than the birds of the air and flowers of the field. Worry chokes every ounce of trust and makes it impossible to build faith in a God who can and will move mountains.
Look at Adam. He was created on Day 6, and Day 7 was a day of rest. Both he and God enjoyed the creation together. Their commune and intimacy was the rest Adam experienced firstly, than any assignment on looking after God’s garden. Did Adam store, reap, plant or worry? No, even then he had more than enough. He felt more than enough and God was more than enough to Him. Our first and foremost call is to rest, enjoy and love on God and His purposes. Worry will never have a knock at the door of your heart, when you enjoy God, knowing He forever has it all sorted out for now and tomorrow.
The lady who was persistent for bread crumbs (Mat 15:27), quit worry! Only because she left her worry was she able to pursue Jesus for who He was and what He had. Worry tells us we need to start doing something, while resting and enjoying God tells us, “This may look a little overwhelming, but my Daddy will always be on His Throne”. He will always have the final say and His final is for your good, to give you hope and a great future; never for harm.
