Do you worry? Are you concerned about your future to the point where it
steals your joy? Jesus said in Matthew 6:25, “Take no thought for your
That seems simple enough, but for some reason we don’t get it. We
think we have to run our own lives and make things happen. If something
isn’t going right we think we have to fix it. There’s nothing more
frustrating than trying to make something happen that is never meant to
I’ve heard it said that if you try to teach a pig to sing, it will frustrate
you and irritate the pig. If that pig is meant to sing God will lead him to
sing without your help.
Sometimes, we are to just take our hands off of things and let God take care
of it. Let Him do what only He can do and not worry about the outcome.
Believe that He has your best interest in mind for He has a wonderful plan
for each believer (Jeremiah 29:11).
God wants to govern our lives. When we become saved, the Holy Spirit comes
to live in our hearts and wants full control. We must die to the flesh and
give Him that control or else we will be fighting against Him. James 4:6
says, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
Read Mathew 6:19-34 where Jesus is saying, “Take no thought for your life.”
Ask God to make it alive to you so that you can fully grasp this portion of
Scripture. We are meant to be free of stress, reasoning, worry and
everything else that can weigh us down. And, taking on too much care for our
own lives certainly will weigh us down.
God is our Heavenly Father who cares for us. So, we don’t have to worry,
struggle to figure everything out, or even try to make things happen. God
wants us to dwell in His "secret place" and abide under His shadow (Psalm
91:1) as we cast all of our care upon Him (1 Peter 5:7).
The bottom line is: Take no thought for your life (Matthew 6:25), be anxious
for nothing (Philippians 4:6) , and be still and know that He is God (Psalm
46:10), for He will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him,
because he trusts in Him” (Isaiah 26:3).
Peace of God
A Christian perspective
on obtaining lasting peace. We live a life filled with way too much. We have too many commitments, too much to do, and we live a very un-natural pace. At times it feels as if we live in slavery to our schedules. It seems as though every minute of our day is dictated to us, with very little choice. I don't believe it's supposed to be this way, and I believe there's a way out. If you can relate to this, maybe I can offer some hope.
The Lesson of Surrender, Devotion and Love from Jesus Christ's Life
I would like to share with you here some of my humble thoughts concerning these important parts of Jesus' life, birth, death and resurrection, which we celebrate yearly.
Where is God while we face difficulties in life?
He asked me a perpetually valid question. Where is God in the chaos
and pandemonium of life!? Why did God take away my father 6 months ago
in a fatal accident? Why do I feel a vacuum in my life as a result of
