Worthless Worry#

I was young, and now I am old, but I have never seen good people left helpless or their children begging for food. (Psalm 37:25)

We worry. 

We worry about the IRS and the SAT and the FBI…

We worry that we won’t have enough money, and when we have money we worry that we won’t manage it well.

We worry that the world will end before the parking meter expires. 

We worry what the dog thinks if he sees us step out of the shower. We worry that someday we’ll learn the fat-free yogurt was fattening.

Honestly, now! Did God save you so you would fret? Would he teach you to walk just to watch you fall? Would He be nailed to the cross for your sins and then disregard your prayers?  Come on. 

Did God save you so that you could fret?

Is Scripture teasing us when it reads:

He has put His angels in charge of you to watch over you wherever you go. (Psalm 91:11)#

The Last Word:

It is curious to my mind that it is easier to worry than to trust, where in fact does the real and loving competence lie? (SoulSupply)
