A Lesson In Worry
Worrying doesn't improve the future, it only ruins the present.
Worrying doesn't change anything, but trusting in God changes everything. Stop worrying and make wise decisions. Trust Him with the results.
My friend handed me a tall glass of water and told me to hold it. The longer I held it, the heavier it felt. Finally my hand grew tired, and I had to put the glass down. "I've learned that worry can be like holding that glass," she said. "The longer I worry about something, the more my fears weigh me down."
King David knew about fear. His whole life had been turned upside down. His son Absalom had stolen the allegiance of the nation of Israel from him and was attempting to take the throne for himself. David didn't know who was loyal to him and who was against him.
His only option seemed to be to run. He said to his servants, "Make haste to depart, lest [Absalom] overtake us suddenly and bring disaster upon us.
In a psalm that David may have written while he was fleeing for his life, he wrote: "I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill." In he midst of his fear, David looked to the Lord. God showed him grace and restored him to the throne.
There are plenty of worries that can weigh us down. But as we release them into God's strong hands, He will help us through our trials.
Thank you Lord, that we do not have to be weighed down by worry.
Worry is a burden that God never meant for us to bear.
