You don’t have to go the rest of your life in constant worry, being uptight, having your stomach in a knot, or feeling tense. Anything that’s learned can be unlearned. So let’s start unlearning worry!
God has promised to take care of you. The starting point to letting go of worry is to maintain this humble attitude: “God is God, and I’m not.” When you understand that, worry will start disappearing from your life.
“‘Do not be worried and upset,’ Jesus told them. ‘Believe in God and believe also in me’” (John 14:1 GNT).
Start every day by reminding yourself that God is a good God. When you wake up, why not try that? Sit on the side of your bed and say, “The Lord is my shepherd. Jesus Christ, I’m expecting you to feed me, lead me, and meet my needs today. I will trust you.”
Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me . . . I sacrifice my life for the sheep” (John 10:14-15 NLT).
If God loved you enough to die for you, he certainly loves you enough to feed you, lead you, and meet whatever need you have today.
