What Happens When You Worry?

“…casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”

1 Peter 5:7


Ponder This

What happens when you worry? You bring tomorrow’s difficulty into today. God didn’t give you grace for tomorrow’s difficulties. He only gives you grace for today.

When you reach into tomorrow’s troubles, you overload today’s circuit. Worry doesn’t take the sorrow out of tomorrow, it takes the strength out of today. Then when you meet tomorrow, you’re out of breath because you’re already overloaded from today. Worry, therefore, does not make you ready for the future; it really makes you unready.

Worry will eat your lunch. It’ll eat your breakfast and dinner, too. Confess your worries as sin (because they are). Put your concerns at the throne of Almighty God, trusting Him to provide.

Practice This

Yesterday is just a canceled check. Tomorrow is a promissory note. Today has all the cash you can handle. Spend it wisely.
