What to Do with Worries

“What to Do with Worries?”

            Worry often seems to be a hobby or favorite past time for many people. Statistics tell us that 85% of what people worry about never happens. For sure, worry, never solved any problems, only creates others. We have heard someone say, “I have worried myself sick over this problem.” Sickness was all they got from their worries. The problem was still there, perhaps even worse.

            Dr. Luke, in Chapter 12 of his gospel, records for us the words of Jesus concerning worry.   The Lord Jesus points out the foolishness of worry by giving the birds of the air as an example. Jesus said, “Think of the ravens, they do not plant nor reap. They do not have store houses for food but yet God feeds them and you are more valuable than the birds of the air.” In essence, Jesus was saying: Trust God for all life’s needs. He will care for you!

            The sweet Psalmist of Israel, David, gives some great lessons of life that will help us with worries. He wrote Psalm 37 when he was an older man. He said, “I have been young and now I am old, yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging for bread.” David trusted the Lord God to care for him and his need.

            David reminds the reader not to fret over people that you cannot change nor over problems that you can do nothing about. Instead he said, “Trust in the Lord and do good.” [Psalm 37:3] Now that is great advice! Trust in the Lord. After all, the Lord is the only one that can meet every need of life.

            Not only are we to trust Him, but the Psalmist tells us to, “Delight thyself in the Lord.”   That is, we are to rejoice in the Lord in all of life. Rejoicing is better than complaining or worrying.

            Instead of worrying about those things we really can do nothing about rest in the Lord. He is the perfect resting place.

            It is God Who solves problems, not our worrying. Trust Him, wait upon Him!

That is what to do with worries!!
