WORRY WORRY WORRY | Short Sermon Series
It’s easy to get caught up and worry about things in life (its human nature!) - worrying about what we will wear and what we will eat for instance. But Jesus tells us “do not worry about your life”, “Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” For our heavenly Father knows what we need and it shall be given to us (Matthew 6:31-34).
‘But my worries are more than food and clothes!’ Good news! In 1 Peter, we are told to humble ourselves and cast our anxieties on Him for He cares for us! The only issue is that many of us aren’t letting go of our anxieties because we forget we have a miracle working God on our side. Instead, we work hard in our own effort and do everything ourselves, and God lets us do so until we let go. God’s a gentleman and He won’t force us to give up. Either we’re going to do it or God’s going to do it.
So instead of worrying and holding on to our struggles, let’s cast our cares upon Jesus, who took it all on the cross for us, and say “GOD, I TRUST YOU!” and begin to see things move in our lives!
