I find comfort and assurance in knowing that the Lord never wrings His hands in worry. Nothing takes Him by surprise. God never has an anxious thought. He doesn’t toss and turn all night or need an extra cup of coffee to get through the day. He’s never weary. God never wonders “what if”.
It was after I listened to the Lord and reminded myself who God is and what He can do that my stress and worry faded away. I felt a calm and peace come over me. I was able to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. I remembered that I need to be about my Father’s business…praying. God is faithful and true and He is working out His perfect plan, not only in my life, but in the life of family and friends.
When I worry I’m acting as if there is no God. It’s good to be taken to the woodshed now and again. It reminds me Whose I am. But surely it would be better if I chose instead to believe God…to walk by faith, not by sight.
