“Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?” Matthew 6:27, NKJV.
It can be easy for me to tell you, don’t worry and that it will be alright, but I’m not there. I’m not in it. Yet, I can tell you that I’ve been there. I’ve been in it. I have found that while I was worrying, it didn’t add anything to me. It didn’t benefit me. I wasted all that energy and time for nothing. While I was worrying, God was moving, and He worked it out–His way.
We all get tempted to worry, but your response to the worry is what will make the difference in your day–in your life. You can choose joy and to keep moving forward instead. You can choose to worry about it, or in the midst of it all, choose to trust Him and His way. You can decide to listen to the enemy, or you can lean in and hear the whisper of the Lord say, I’m going to work it out.
Prayer: Father, thank Your for speaking to me. You know what I need every time. I choose to pray and praise You. I decide to walk in joy today. I choose to live! Worrying is a waster and will add nothing to me, but You will always add to me what I need. I receive Your peace about it now. I give it to You. You always work it out. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
