Eliminate Worry And Learn to Trust God

In review of Matthew 6:34 it says, “Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day  is its own trouble.”

Bottom Line:
Don’t worry about tomorrow. It will take care of itself. Just deal with what you have in front of you today.

What this means to me:
I do not need to worry about what will happen tomorrow, for I have assurance that God will take care of it. So rather I can learn to live one day at a time and deal with what’s in front of me.

Today's passage deals with the concern we all tend to have about the future. What I'm learning is that planning for tomorrow will be time well spent; but worrying about tomorrow is time wasted. Sometimes it's difficult to tell the difference. Careful planning is the thinking ahead about goals, steps, and schedules, and trusting in God's guidance. When done well, planning can actually help me alleviate some worry. A Worrier, by contrast, will be consumed by fear and they find it difficult to trust God. They let their plans interfere with their relationship with God. I shouldn't let worries about tomorrow affect my relationship with God today.

Today I will consider what’s on my “to do” lists and if there is something that occupies my mind. Something that I waste my time on thinking and worry about. God tells me not to be anxious about anything. For when I worry, I’m essentially telling God that I don’t trust Him to handle things on my behalf. Is this the message I want to tell God?

Today, I can start living a more joy-filled life that comes with the knowledge that God is in control. Concentrate on making today be the very best day it can be. God who created this world and everything in it says that He wants me to have the absolute best every single day of my life!. I am so incredibly important to Him that He sent His only Son to dies just for me. So I can lift my head high and believe that God has great blessings on order for me. Live each moment as if were my last, for I never really know when it will be. No one does.

God has this day completely under His care, so go ahead and give up my job as the general manager of the universe. The world will not stop rotating, and I might just find that I’ll enjoy my life on a whole new level.
