MATTHEW 6:31_Therefore take no thought…
How many times will Jesus teach to stop worrying? How many times will He point out it begins in your thought process?
As many times as a parent teaches a child to tie a shoe, or ride a bike – as many times as it takes.
Jesus’ repetitiveness is for you to follow. The longer you follow, the more you understand the heart of God – which increases faith. Eventually, it will make sense that God takes care of you! You begin to see that when you go through tough struggles, not only is Jesus with you, but a host of other believers have followed the same path. (Study George Washington at Valley Forge for one example).
Rather than allowing the deceiver to fill your thoughts with doubts and fear, begin to take Jesus at His word. Matthew 11:28-30 (KJV), “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Simon Peter caught on to how to deal with worry: I Peter 5:6-7 (KJV), “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
Loving Jesus, Please teach me how to wear Your yoke and not worry. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ gives His followers rest—He will give it to me
