Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. — Matthew 6:34
Recently, I allowed circumstances beyond my control to send me into a tailspin. I worried, fretted, and played the what–if game. For a couple of weeks, I wrestled with poor sleep, tired days, and wavering faith. But through this, God taught me a few things.
He reminded me to live for today. “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6:34).He reminded me to live for today. Click To Tweet
He promised to take care of me. “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature” (Matthew 6:25–27)?
He encouraged me to trust Him. “And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You” (Psalm 9:10).
What are your anxious about today?
Do not worry about tomorrow.
God will take care of you.
Father, I pray for this reader and what she’s facing. May she live one day at a time and trust You to take care of her. For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
