Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6.
Latley I find myself worrying about the future. Will we have enough money in 2 weeks to buy groceries. Will we have enough gas in the car to get through until the next payday. What will happen if/when our car needs repairs. These worries are about money but there are other worries in my life, such as will my kids see Jesus through me and want to accept Him in their hearts too, and will we ever get a house. Also how do I get out of my shyness, I want to be who Jesus wants me to be NOW not wait, not have to work for it just NOW.
Then the Lord said to Moses, I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will follow my instructions. Exodus 16:4.
The Isrealites worried, they worried about EVERYTHING. Every day God provided them enough food for that day. Only on the 6th day were they instructed to pick extra because God told them to rest on the Sabbath. As I was reading this God and I shared a moment. He showed me that I worry about tomorrow a lot. While I'm worrying about tomorrow I miss what's right in front of me. His blessings for today. I miss the fact that He provided us 50 free diapers from my mom searching craigs list on a whim. I miss that He showed me my husband actually sits down and prays and has his quiet time with God every day.
Do you have a need you're looking to for the future? So much so that you're missing what's right in front of you for today? Take it to God in prayer, ask Him to take that worry so you won't miss what He has for you today. I don't want to miss a single blessing He provides today.
