Matthew 6:33,34 ~ The Message Bible
“If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
My new years resolution is to stop worrying. Easier said than done right? To stop doing something, we need to replace that action with something else. The Scripture is so clear when it states, "don't worry about anything, but pray about EVERYTHING!" Our mind is going to be active in either a negative way or a postivie way. I'm choosing the discipline of whispering my concerns to Him instead of rehearsing my fears. How about you? Will you join me? I believe He will bless and honor our decision to cast our care on Him instead of worry. He can handle it! He is Faithful!
