Three Unnecessary Things To Worry About.
Worrying leads to stress, but most of us will worry when the future seems uncertain.
Worrying is futile and it waste your time because it does not change your situation.
In spite of knowing this we still worry any way.
Here are three things that you need not worry about because they are already taken care of.
1. Your daily provision
This includes your health, wealth, shelter, clothes and food.
Since you are better than the animals, flowers and plants, and God takes care of all of them, then most naturally God will also take care of you who are created in His image and likeness.
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)
2. Evil doers and workers of iniquity.
They shall soon be cut down like the grass,
and wither as the green herb.
Do not fret because of evildoers, nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. (Psalms 37:1-2).
3. The man who prospers in his ways.
Do you know how he gets his wealth?
It maybe by illegal means, and if so the wealth will wither and deminish, and his arms broken.
Instead of worrying
Trust in the Lord and do good.
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as the noonday.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath.
Do not fret—it only causes harm. (Psalms 37)
Thank you Lord for freeing us from worry!
