Most of us, at some point in our life, have sung this song “Don’t worry, be happy”. However with all all that is happening around us today, it is indeed difficult to not worry! We are worried about when this pandemic will end, we are worried about our jobs, we are worried about our families. We read about our grim situation on the news, on social media. Amidst the sea of negativity, how are we expected to not worry?
As Toby says, worrying is assuming God doesn’t know what He is doing. And we will only assume this is if we don’t trust God. There is an intimate link between knowing, loving and trusting God. The more time I spend getting to know Him intimately, the more I fall in love with Him. And the more I fall in love with Him, the more I trust him. My time with Him changes from asking to thanking, from requests to just feeling blessed. I trust that He will work wonders no matter what comes my way. He knows what is best for me.
I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know who holds my future.Lee Strobel
