God helps us to keep things in perspective doesn’t He? Jesus says since we can’t do the “very little thing” of adding an hour to our lives, what are we worrying about the rest for?
Wow! To Jesus, adding an hour to a life is a simple thing! Now if that doesn’t help us to understand how powerless we are and powerful He is, I don’t know what will. Stop worrying right now. What good is it doing? Can we alone change our situations? Pray. Pray without ceasing. Pray continually. God is sovereign. He knows everything about us. He isn’t some distant, uncaring mystical being. He is God “with us.” He knows our problems. He knows what we need. He wants us to trust Him. Put your trust where your worry is. Do it now in Jesus’s name. You’ve been up all weekend worrying about “the rest” – bills, lack of money, your child, your next steps, your career, some trouble you got into, the disease, your boss, your past, your past, your past… Stop it now. The One who numbers the hairs on your head has your life in His hands. He can extend time for you or wipe time out for this entire world. Trust God. Dr.J.
