Do Not Worry

It’s so easy to get caught up and be soaked with worry and fear. Be it because of exams, or a hard work week, or just because you naturally worry about things. The conflict of worrying has been one of my biggest struggles, and I haven’t totally conquered it yet. 

But Jesus tells us several times not to worry. In fact, there’s several passages on this issue in Scripture. Just as God commands us not to lie or commit other crimes in the Ten Commandments, He tells us not to fear the world and worry about things. 

In the following passage, focus on the words as Jesus can take care of the birds, and He knows the number of stars; focus on how He can take of you. 

I encourage you today and this week that whenever you begin to worry over something, you pray this passage out loud and call out to God for peace. 

“Then Jesus said to His disciples: ‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: they do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” -Luke 12:22-26
