Someone asked, “Can someone just be worried but you don’t know the reason, you are just bothered, what does that person do?”
Jesus said to Martha, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things.” There are people like Martha, they worry themselves about a lot of issues, including those that don’t even concern them! They are just too nice, they want everything to go as planned, they want everything to be in place and ready on time, they just want to be sure that there are no issues whatsoever. The problem with them though, is that they often get in the driver’s seat when God should be the one in control.
There’s another set of people, the fearful ones. Their own worry is a result of fear: they worry about losing their jobs, losing their lives, losing their health, losing their family, losing their business, etc. These people should stop watching the news! The bad news affects them: the news about the economy, the security situation, the condition of infrastructures, and so on.
Then there’s this last set of people; they’ve got little or nothing, they are paid poorly, and yet there are so many bills; these set of people are not sure of the next meal, yet they have dependants; they fear falling sick, because there’s no means of taking care of themselves if they do.
Brothers and sisters, whatever your situation, I assure you that there’s no need to worry! There’s no reason at all for you to be anxious about anything! Why? Because you have a Father who cares for you! Know His love for you and the extent of His power. He’s an ever present help in time of need! He knows what you need, and He is willing and able to supply them all!
Welcome to August! We hereby declare it to be a worry free month! You will see God at work in your life, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
