What about Tomorrow?

Dear Friends,
Today is a new day and I encourage you to thank God for everything He has done for you and not worry about tomorrow. He is in control and He will guide each one of your steps if you let Him. Today’s devotional reminds us that God gives us grace for each day. Enjoy!

Don’t Worry about Tomorrow
Matthew 6:34 (Weymouth)

Do not be anxious, therefore, about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own anxieties. Enough for each day is its own trouble.

Do you worry about tomorrow? Do you worry about losing your job? Did you know that worry is the opposite of faith? Fear and worry rob us of God’s peace and rest. In His Word, God tells us to not worry. In fact, He commands us not to worry. Why? Because worry shows lack of faith and trust in Him. When we worry, we are telling God that what He says in His Word doesn’t work, so we are coming up with a better solution ourselves.

Did you know that God has feelings? God, as a Father, gave up His only Son and sacrificed Him so we may have life. By worrying, we are saying that what Jesus did was not worth it to us and that hurts God. Yet He doesn’t keep track of hurts, and He forgives us on a daily basis.

God gives us grace for one day at a time. Each day has its troubles—sometimes big and other times small—either way, we must confront and resolve each one.

Therefore, don’t worry about the future. Give it to the Lord. Work hard today and know that He is in charge and in control of your life.
