Sometimes I Worry By Kirk Hunt

 

Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

Matthew 6:30 NKJV

 

I believe myself to be a man of faith. Certainly, I was raised by and among people of faith. So why do I sometimes worry?

 

Like Peter, I sometimes look around and see the storm that rages around me. The world can be a scary, predatory place. So say the facts and figures.

 

Faith does not do away with facts and figures. Instead, Scripture says that I should not fret and worry but trust God. I know this in my head. Still, sometimes, my heart pulls in a different direction.

 

Faith is not the absence of difficulty or uncertainty. Faith sees through the smoke and haze to the source of all power and security. Real Faith™ always remembers that God is the sovereign source.

 

So I renew my confidence in God and act like a man of faith. Storm winds may still batter me, but I put my focus on the Master of storms. My faith may be imperfect, but the perfect source of all security and comfort remains my God and savior.

 

Think:             God is my source, so I should never worry, even during difficulties.

 

Pray:               “Father-God, help me to keep my faith in You.”
