Are You Worried?

In this time of a pandemic coronavirus, do you find yourself worrying about things that are beyond your control? That would be easy to do. However, worry is such a futile exercise. Even worse, worry can affect your health. It's really a dangerous habit. I could say to you, "Don't worry." You may respond by saying, "I can't help it."

When faced with problems of Covid-19 beyond our control, there is something you can do besides worry. You can pray. No problem is beyond God's control. Unload your worry with him. Prayer is simply talking to God. You can talk to him about everything.

Take your problems to the Lord in prayer. "Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done" (Philippians 4:6, NLT).

Take your need to God. He's the Father of all who trust in him. He really cares about all of your needs. If you care about the needs of those you love, how much more does your Father in heaven care about your needs?

When you talk to God, don't forget to thank him for all the good things that he has done in your life. Also, thank him in advance for how he will work in your problem for your good and his glory. Then, you can say good-bye to worry.
