Do not worry

I love saying to people, “don’t worry, it’ll be okay,” or worse still, “do you not believe in God? He’ll take care of it so don’t you worry!”

How wrong had I been? Today the Holy Spirit  revealed to me that “don’t worry” is not the complete solution.

Paul taught us in Phillipians 4:6-7 to cast our worries on the Lord, not because we can control our feelings (our might?), but we are asked to pray to God, and He gives us peace in return (His glory!).

I don’t know about you, but that’s such a relief to know! I often thought; maybe I haven’t enough faith, thus my worrying heart. Today I learn that I ought to stop the act of not-worrying and begin to pray earnestly to the Lord in everything! Thank God for the (easier) solution for my worries!
