My Daily Devotional

Putting Worry In Its Place

”Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Matthew 6:33-34

Many people are what I call worry warts because they worry about every little thing. Every minute of the day they are constantly worrying about things that could or might happen, which most often don’t happen. Worrying runs opposite to having faith in God, and can literally strangle the life out of something. We are supposed to trust God to take care of us today, tomorrow, and into the future. Worry has always been in contradiction to having faith. Real planning for the future is trusting in God for everything. If God feeds the birds, surely we can trust Him to provide for us, since we are greater than the birds. We simply just worry too much about issues at home, at work, and our own selfish desires. We learn what to worry about from personal experiences, as well as from family and friends. Our worry also varies in our ability to handle worries. Some are overwhelmed, while others take worry in stride. We respond to worries differently, some with positive thinking, and prayer, while others with negativity. We have a God who not only cares for us, but already knows our needs. God has a plan for us, and If we ask for His will to be done in our lives, and seek Him first, everything will take care of itself. God places high value on living one day at a time, and trusting Him for all things. Striving after our desires leads to worry, but striving for God’s kingdom takes away worry. The answer is to trust God for everything.

Robert William Brock, Jr. I was born in Pineville, Kentucky, the son of Robert William Brock and Irene Napier, I grew up in the beautiful southeastern part of Kentucky.

The Nehemiah Network concept has now spread throughout the nation and over 10,000 programs have been developed, in almost all the states, adopting the framework of the Network. I am a published author of 17 Christian books, and have spent over thirty years tracing my ancestors and writing a book about my Kentucky Heritage.
