Jesus says don’t . . .
I always have to remind myself of this. If it's big enough to worry about it, it's big enough to pray about it. So what do you find yourself worrying about? I want you to choose to pray about it instead of worrying about it. Replace your thoughts of worry. Try this. This works so well for me read the Psalms out loud as a way of praying and praising him because his purposes are always higher than our ways. Remember, if it's big enough to worry about it, it's big enough to pray about it.
Jesus says don’t . . . but we do it anyway. And because we do, we become tense and troubled. Multiple times Jesus says clearly . . . specifically . . . unequivocally, “Do not worry about your life,” meaning, do not worry about anything in your life.
Is that even possible?
When we worry, we allow our irreplaceable time to waste away. Worrying about the length of your life will not add one day to your life. Spending an entire night stressing over a problem won’t result in a solution any more than an afternoon of fretting over your finances will fix them.
For some, worry seems as natural as blinking. Many assume that being worry-free is merely wishful thinking. Until we experience firsthand just how personal God is and how faithful He is to meet our deepest inner needs.
Jesus reasons with us: If God faithfully provides food for the birds, won’t He much more provide for you—especially since you have far more value? Knowing just how much worry wears you down, Jesus lovingly reminds you, “Do not worry.” Luke 12:22 If it's big enough to worry about, it's big enough to pray about.
