Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what clothes you will wear. Is life not more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
- Matthew 6:25-26
WORRY IS SOMETHING that I used to struggle with a lot. “How am I going to get this done or how am I going to be able to pay all the bills this month?” This is a natural human tendency, almost like the will to survive. But worry is something that will reduce your ability to trust God. This is something I have started to realize in my own life over the past couple years. Being able to make a declaration in my life that no matter what the circumstance and no matter how difficult it looks, I will trust God. I will trust that He will help me handle it and I trust that the outcome will be perfect because it’s the way He intended it to be. Worry doesn’t have to consume your life, so just start trusting God.
God I pray that today You will help me to remove any kind of worry from my life and that I will be able to fully trust You with every aspect of my life. I know this is going to be a hard thing for me to do but with You all things are possible. Please give me the strength to rely and trust in You.
