The world is a mess and it doesn’t look like the clean up crew is coming anytime soon. The incredible idiocy can get to you, it can give you angst. Feeling a little bit angsty? Didn’t you hear Pastor Curt’s great advice yesterday? “If you want to worry less, pray more!” So simple, but let’s take it up another notch. What did the Apostle Paul say to the Philippians? “Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, make your requests made known to God, and the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds in Chist Jesus.” Still got a little heartburn? Okay, lets take it to the top. What did Jesus say in the middle of His sermon on the mount in Matthew 6:25-34? “Therefore, I say to you do not worry … Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature … why do you worry … therefore, do not worry … do not worry about tomorrow …!” You’ll have to read the whole passage yourself to fill in the dots. So why does Jesus tell us not to worry? Because He’s got us covered! He knows what we need, when we need it, and He promises to provide it, and He does! He doesn’t want us caght up worrying about earthly things but to be concerned with Heavenly things. He knows the world is a mess and He’ll take care of it on His timetable not ours. (personally, I’d be mounting up my warrior angels and preparing to clean house tomorrow) So, listen to the Lord, don’t worry about what He already promised He’ll take care of, spend more time in prayer, let Him replace your angst with peace, keep seeking His kingdom first, and let Him take care of the small stuff!
