“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Matthew 6:31-34 New International Version (NIV)
Lot of folks worried today. There is much tension in the air. What worries many people today isn't about food or drink or clothes, but the future. Heads up! God controls that too. Whatever happens tomorrow, God is still on the Throne. His will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
We do have our responsibilities to carry out. Many people have fought for our right to choose. Jesus died to give us all the opportunity to use our freedom to make a difference. We are provided with instructions in God's Word on how to recognize right from wrong. Those who believe in and truly follow Jesus Christ have the indwelling Holy Spirit to help discern good from evil. Only God can judge the choices we make and why we make them (and He will). God is also intimately acquainted with the enemy of our souls and knows every trick he will try to use to further our confusion through deceit. Just remember that God stands ready to deal with whatever the outcome may be and He will use it for our good and His glory. That's a promise.
Bottom line: We are not even promised life on this planet tomorrow. Our best hope is to live for Christ today. Our Heavenly Father holds tomorrow in His hands and He already knows what He is going to do with it.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:6-7 NLT
