You are meddling with Christ’s business, and neglecting your own when you fret about your lot and circumstances.You have been trying “providing” work and forgetting that it is yours to obey.HT: Doug Wolter
Be wise and attend to the obeying, and let Christ manage the providing.
Come and survey your Father’s storehouse, and ask whether he will let you starve while he has laid up so great an abundance in his garner?
Look at his heart of mercy; see if that can ever prove unkind!
Look at his inscrutable wisdom; see if that will ever be at fault.
Above all, look up to Jesus Christ your Intercessor, and ask yourself, while he pleads, can your Father deal ungraciously with you?
If he remembers even sparrows, will he forget one of the least of his poor children?
“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he will sustain thee. He will never suffer the righteous to be moved.”
For more on how to be “anxious for nothing,” listen to this recent sermon from David Sunday. Here’s one quote:
Today is the tomorrow that you were worried about yesterday. And often our worries about tomorrow rob us of the joys and blessings God wants us to experience today.
