Matthew 6:34 NKJV - "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."
Yesterday we spoke about making our future plans and not consulting God for His approval or making our plans and expecting God's approval. Either way we need to stop planning without asking God to reveal His plans first.
Today, this passage speaks about a different thought we have about our futures: We worry about what might happen. We dwell on all the possible bad scenarios we can think of. We hope for the best but assume we will face the worst. This kind of worry is actually an offense to a compassionate God who knows our needs and has ample provision to meet those needs
This is a common malady seen throughout the Bible. Whether it be the Israelites in the Old Testament or those who encountered Jesus in the New Testament it seems that people can't stop worrying about the "what if's" of life! As much as God is not pleased with our planning the future without thinking about His plans, He's also not pleased when we worry about the future as if God doesn't care or isn't able to do anything.
As Jesus asked in Matthew 6:28, "So, why do you worry...?" If Jesus cared enough to meet our need at Calvary don't you think He will care enough to meet your need for tomorrow? Stop worrying and trust Him!
