(Mat 6:27 NKJV) "Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
This is never an easy lesson to learn, but not a single one of us can add anything good to our lives by worrying.
Worrying will not change any situation. It will not add money to our budget. It will not save our lost friends, relatives, spouses, or children. It will not fix broken relationships, a broken down car or a leaky roof.
Here's what worrying will do. It will add to our stress levels. It will increase our blood pressure. It will give us gray hair prematurely. It will cause us to gain weight. It will destroy our health, and so much more. Nothing about worrying is good for us.
Oh, and worrying shows us how much or how little we trust God with our situations and our problems.
We know that it's not always easy not to worry. It comes very natural for many of us. But it is so much easier to trust God and let Him work things out for us. And don't be fooled. Just because things aren't turning out the way we thought they should, doesn't mean that He isn't in control.
Sometimes we just don't see the big picture and what God is doing may look a little odd to us at first. But if we trust Him and let Him work it out, we will see that He knows what's best for us and He knows what He's doing!
