I got a little anxious today. So I had to shut my office door and pray about it. When I feel anxious, it’s because I’m afraid of failing and messing something up. It’s because I’m really relying on my own strength and capabilities, and I know I’m so far from perfect and left to my own devices, I would mess everything up! But the LORD is my strength. HE is in control, not me. And if He wants to bless me with something, He’ll do it, in spite of any error on my part. As long as I’m reliant upon His grace, trusting Him through the situation, I have nothing to worry about.
It is a command to not worry, not a suggestion. It’s a choice to release your all to Christ and believe He is who He is. I’m glad He has everything under control.
