7 Reasons There’s No Reason to Worry

From Matthew 6:25-34

1. Because if God has given me big, substantial gifts (such as my life & body), I can trust Him to provide for smaller, less substantial needs.  (v25)

2. Because God is so sovereign He cares about even the insignificant details of nature.  (v26, 28-29)

3. Because I am of great value to God.  (v26b, 30)

4. Because anxiety does zippo to fix my problems or extend my life.  (v27)

5. Because God knows what I need.  (v32)

6. Because God’s kingdom and righteousness are more important than anything I could ever need or want.  (v33)

7. Because tomorrow will bring new troubles I didn’t even see coming, so I might as well live one day at a time.  (v34)

Am I the only big, fat worry wart who finds this incredibly uplifting?  Thank You God, for Your Word!  Empower me to believe and live it.

    Perfect in every way! I keep telling myself to TAKE the time to read your beautiful words and everything ELSE in life sucks me away. No longer gonna see you in my inbox and wait…wait…until I just have to “clean house” and surrender your posts. You are a gift!! Your blog is a gift. Thank you for being God’s loving Grace soaked voice. 🙂

    Thank you for this, it is such a timely reminder in my life at present. I seem to be worrying more and more about life’s small details, when I know this is pointless. I also need to believe God’s Word about not worrying and live it out.
