God knows that you have to eat. He also knows you have to go to school or make a living. Consider this: if God sent his only son to die for you, will he not take care of you while you wade through your time on Earth? Some of us spend so much time focused on our current human condition we forget what’s really important: to, “seek first his kingdom, and his righteousness.” Worrying is a state of mind ill equipped for either.
Questions for further thought:
1. What do you worry about that keeps you from God’s work or his plan for you?
2. How can you push past these worries and focus on what’s most important?
Challenge: Evaluate what causes you the most stress; chances are that’s where your heart is at the moment. Find a way to turn what you’re stressed about over to God, even if that’s only allowing His peace to wash over you.
