Matthew 6:25-27 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? (NIV)

 Worry.  My mother-in-law said if there wasn’t something to worry about she would make something up.  She equated worrying about someone meant you were showing them you loved them.  Worry actually shows a lack of trust that God is in control of our lives.  God says nothing can touch us without first passing through His hand.  He also says for us to rejoice in Him through all situations and to be content in all things.  When we worry we are negating God’s love.  Worry and concern are different.  Worry produces anxiety.  Concern produces prayer.  When we find ourselves starting to worry we need to turn immediately to prayer.  We need to confess our lack of trust in God over the situation and ask God to increase our faith and trust in Him.  God is faithful.  God holds us in the palm of His hand.  In God’s love there is nothing to fear.  Thank Him today for His faithfulness.
