Daily Devotion: Why Are You Worried?

Bible Reading: Matthew 6:28-34

Key Verse: Verse 28 - "And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:"

Key Words: why take ye thought

Mark that word thought. It means to be anxious or to worry. If God takes care of the lilies of the field, shall he not much more provide for His child?

Warren Wiersbe says that 98% of everything we worry about never becomes reality.

In 480 B.C. the outmanned army of Sparta’s King Leonidas held off the Persian troops of Xerxes by fighting them one at a time as they came through a narrow mountain pass. Commenting on this strategy, C. H. Spurgeon said, “Suppose Leonidas and his handful of men had gone out into the wide-open plain and attacked the Persians—why, they would have died at once, even though they might have fought like lions.”

Spurgeon continued by saying that Christians stand in the narrow pass of today. If they choose to battle every difficulty at once, they’re sure to suffer defeat. But if they trust God and take their troubles one by one, they will find that their strength is sufficient.

What to do:
✞ You can worry or trust God, but you can’t do both. Which will you choose?
