Week 4 Day 5
Matthew 6:25-34 (NIV84)
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.Matthew 6:33-34 (NIV84)
Today, you need to find some time to connect with nature. Go to the ocean, or to the Everglades or walk through a park.
Having seen nature in one form or another, did you notice any of God’s creation showing signs of worry or anxiety? Humans worry while most of God’s creation is free from worry. What causes stress in your life? It is probably something important. Right? Is the issue that is important to you, important to God? Does God care about what concerns you?
God cares for you. You matter to God.
Don’t stress about things you cannot control. Seek God’s rule and give Him control. Giving control means you trust God for the outcome. You do your part and God does His.
List the things that concern you right now. Is there anything on your list that you need to give to God to control? What is your part in this situation? What is God’s responsibility?
God blesses everything He controls.
