Fret not… (Psalm 37: 8)
God knows what He’s doing. During hard seasons, it’s so easy to question God’s sovereignty. We start to get frustrated because things aren’t going the way we planned. Learn to submit your plans to God then wait for His response, God will not always approve, especially when the plan does not bring glory to His name.
God knows what He is doing, understand this! You cannot compare God’s wisdom to the wisdom of man.
Worrying demotes the power of God. If you are truly aware of the power of God then you’d pray with belief that there is nothing to worry about because God has everything under control. When you’re in good hands, nothing can touch you! Your intimacy with Christ should surpass your feelings/ thoughts.
I love the example God gives of birds!
25“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? (Matthew 6: 25-27 NLT)
The point made is that if a bird can live on without worrying about where their next meal will come from, why can’t we?! We are precious in the Lord’s sight, more than any bird. If God provides for His animals, then surely He’ll provide for me and you. Get your mind right and know that God provides, sustains and delivers.
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4: 6-7 NLT)
I’ll end with this quote:
“The mind is just like a muscle- the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets and the more it can expand” //Idowu Koyenikan
Think about what you think about. Pray more. Worry less.
Lord, thank you for your Word, grant me the grace to read your word to feed my mind to remain faithful. I pray I will not groan through trials of life but grow through them by believing in your power.
