31 Days - Day 30


Matthew 6:25-34                             SEVEN REASONS NOT TO WORRY

Matthew 6:25         The same God who created life in you can be trusted with the details of your life

Matthew 6:26          Worrying about the future hampers your efforts for today

Matthew 6:27          Worrying is more harmful than helpful  

Matthew 6: 28-30   God does not ignore those who depend you Him

Matthew 6:31-32    Worrying shows a lack of faith in and understanding of God

Matthew 6:33          Worrying keeps us from the real challenges that God wants us to pursue

Matthew 6:34          Living one day at a time keeps us from being consumed with worry

Jesus tells us not to worry about those needs that God promises to supply. Worry may damage your health, disrupt your productivity, negatively affect the way you treat others, and reduce your ability to trust in God. The real difference between worry and genuine concern – worry immobilizes, but concern moves you to action.

Planning for tomorrow is time well spent; worrying about tomorrow is time wasted. Sometimes it’s difficult to tell the difference. Careful planning is thinking ahead about goals, steps, and schedules; trusting in God’s guidance. When done well, planning can alleviate worry.

Worriers, by contrast, are consumed by fear and find it difficult to trust God. They let their plans interfere with their relationship with God. Don’t let worries about tomorrow affect your relationship with God today.

How many ill effects of worry are you experiencing? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Your Heavenly Father already knows your needs. Give Him your worries; He will give you everything you need!
