Relax, Don’t Worry


Matthew 6:31-34 ERV; “Don’t worry and say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ That’s what those people who don’t know God are always thinking about. Don’t worry, because your Father in heaven knows that you need all these things. What you should want most is God’s kingdom and doing what he wants you to do. Then he will give you all these other things you need. So don’t worry about tomorrow. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Tomorrow will have its own worries.

It’s hard to think about two separate things at the same time. I remember sitting in a meeting once and the pastor said to count from 1-10 in your head. Right in the middle he said, think about a pink elephant. Now, what happened to your counting? It stopped. No matter how hard you try, you cannot think of two things at once. If you’re mind is on God, thinking of His great grace and mercy, thanking him for what he has provided for you and the devil throws a thought in there, it’s your choice what you’re going to focus on.

The next time the cares of this life threaten to steal your peace and joy, interrupt those thoughts by speaking out loud the Word of God. When symptoms come on your body, speak the Word to them and begin to take communion, remembering the blood that was shed for your healing and salvation. God always responds to your faith in Him and His Word.

Father, I thank you that you’ve provided everything I need. The only thing I need to do is seek your face. If I do what you created me to do, you will take care of me because that’s your job. I won’t worry about what’s next, I’ll simply speak to that mountain and it will be removed. You gave me your peace and joy and I will purpose to stay and make my home there. As long as I have breath, I will worship you. It’s in Jesus name, Amen.
