What’s on your worry list for this week?
My hope is that your answer to that question would be “I don’t have a worry list, because I never worry!” But unfortunately, there are those who have things on their minds that they’re concerned about and will spend much of the week feeling anxious and fretting over.
But the truth is, we never have to worry. We can put our faith and trust in the true and living God, knowing He will always take care of anything that concerns us. In fact, that’s what the Bible says in Psalm 138:8. David prayed and said, “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me.” The English Standard Bible says, “The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me.” We know that God’s purpose and plan for each of us, according to 3 John 2, is that we live prosperous and healthy lives.
In Philippians 4:6-7, Apostle Paul says: “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Some Bibles translate that word careful as anxious, which means “full of mental distress or uneasiness because of fear of danger or misfortune.” God doesn’t want you anxious about anything, not when He has promised that His peace is present to keep you. So, go ahead and plan your week. Only, leave off the worries. God has already taken care of them for you!
