WORRY. One of the biggest battles many of us are currently facing is happening in our minds by worrying. I get it, as Covid has heightened this battle for me, and I know I am not alone in this as I connect with family, friends & clients across North America.
Yet those of us with faith can draw comfort and find direction on how to battle worry in the Word. One passage (part 1 is below) in particular tackles worry head on….by reminding us that our needs will be met by our Father, our Abba. So we can be more like the birds, and trust in His provision. Why? The verses are clear. By using the word Father, we are reminded that He has a relationship with each of His preclous kids, including you & me, and as a good Father, He will take loving care of us!
We are also reminded that worrying doesn’t add anything positive to our lives in the last sentence below…
“This is why I tell you to never be worried about your life, for all that you need will be provided, such as food, water, clothing- everything your body needs. Isn’t there more to your life than a meal? Isn’t your body more than clothing? Look at all the birds – do you think they worry about their existence? They don’t plant or reap or store up food, yet your heavenly Father provides them each with food. Aren’t you much more valuable to your Father than they? So, which one of you by worrying could add anything to your life?” (Matthew 5:25-27 TPT)
