Winning Over Worry

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life 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, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"1

A Daily Encounter reader writes: "I need help strengthening my faith to realize God will keep His promises as found in His Word in Matthew 6:25-27. 'Too little too late' has always been my experience so far."

I can appreciate this person's struggle and doubts as Iíve struggled with some of these things myself at times.

I've been a Christian for many years and the greatest evidence I have of God meeting my needs and leading me is as I look back over the course of my life. In doing so I stand amazed at the course my life has taken, the way God has provided through the good times and the bad, the mean times and the lean. I can truly say with the hymn writer, "Jesus led me all the way."

Whenever I worry or am afraid, I keep praying, "God, I'm worried/afraid but I choose to trust in you." When I do this, in time my feelings catch up with my choice to trust God.

What I believe Jesus is saying in today's Scripture is not to be over-consumed with these issues he talks about.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, help me to learn to trust You in every circumstance knowing that my life is in Your hands. Help me always to be responsible, but not to worry and doubt. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesusís name, amen.Ē
