Thought to share: The cure for worry is to look at ME. Inspect MY faithfulness. Dig into MY goodness. Explore the vastness of MY great power and authority. Review MY ability to do the impossible. Examine MY deep love for you. As you inspect MY character, you’ll find worry dissipates like the dew on a bright sunny day.

Matthew 6:25-34 (MSG) “If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.

 “Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.

 “If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

Thought to share: I know the situation you’re facing seems impossible – like an enormous mountain, looming before you. But stop for a moment and shift your focus. Bring your attention to ME. Do you see how big I AM? Do you see how powerful I AM? Do you see how willing I AM? Your mountain – and your fears – melts like wax in MY Presence. Is there anything greater than ME?

Psalm 113:5-6 (TPT) For He rules on high over the nations with a glory that outshines even the heavens. No one can be compared to God, enthroned on high!  He stoops down to look upon the sky and the earth.

Psalm 97:1-5 (TPT) Yahweh now reigns as King! Let everyone rejoice! His rule extends everywhere, even to distant lands, and the islands of the sea, let them all be glad. Clouds both dark and mysterious now surround Him. His throne of glory rests upon a foundation of righteousness and justice. All around Him burns a blazing glory-fire consuming all His foes. When His lightning strikes, it lights up the world. People are wide-eyed as they tremble and shake. Mountains melt away like wax in a fire when the Lord of all the earth draws near.

Jeremiah 32:27 (NLT) I am the LORD, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for Me?
