"Don't Worry"

Worrying is common to all of mankind irrespective of the differences, but the things that cause worry differ from person to person. The Random House dictionary gives the meaning for worry as "to torment oneself with or suffer from disturbing thoughts, cares, anxieties."

Don't we feel encouraged in our own life circumstances when our friend, a well-wisher, a family member says to us , "Don't worry yar, it'll be alright." However, there are times in the journey of life we don't find anything tangible around us to encourage us or to uplift our spirits. I would like to remind you all that those are the life situations that the Spirit of the Lord speaks to us , loud and clear, "Don't worry, Fear not, for I am with you. You are Mine. I have called you by name, I will never leave you nor forsake you"

David, who was called to be the King of Israel, had to undergo a path of tremendous anguish and turmoil. He composes a song with his stringed instrument to his Maker and his Lord with the words from his heart in Psalms 55. "Listen to my prayer, O God, do not ignore my plea. Hear me and answer me. My thoughts trouble me and I am distraught." Later in the very same song in Verse 22, he reassures himself as inspired by the Spirit of the Lord saying "Cast your cares on the LORD and He will sustain (support and uphold) you; He will never let the righteous fall" and in Verse 16 he says "But I call to God and the LORD saves me."

There is an amazing, wonderful God who understands your situation and your mental makeup and the thoughts that torment you, and says to you "Don't Worry, leave it all to me, I will support you and uphold you." Therefore, be encouraged today my dearly beloved, trust in the Lord and rest in the abundance of His grace and peace. God Bless You!!
