Don’t Worry: Do This Instead

In Advice and Encouragement by Debra Fileta

We can be SO quick to worry, can’t we? 

Whoever you are, there’s a good chance you are worried about something even as you read these words. As I meditate on God’s words today, I’m reminded of my incredible tendency to worry- and how often I do.

But God calls us to say no to worry- and instead, to seek after Him.

Fixate on His Kingdom– not your concerns.

Obsess with His Goodness– not your goals.

Dwell on His Divinity- not your doubts.

And when you do…you will find that all of your needs will be met. Every. Single. One.

If He is God – He can be trusted. 

“What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with GETTING, so you can respond to God’s GIVING. People who don’t know God and how He works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find your everyday human concerns will be met” (Matthew 6:31-33 The Message)
