34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Do you find yourself worrying about what is going to happen tomorrow? Are you caught up in what “might” happen? The bible tells us to not worry about tomorrow for today has enough problems to focus on. Perhaps that is what we are caught up in, worrying about how our troubles will affect us tomorrow. Remember that tomorrow isn’t promised to us. We need to learn to slow down and focus on what is before us this day.
Don’t let the day pass you while you fret about what tomorrow may bring. Don’t get so caught up in the possible down fall of tomorrow to forget to thank God for the things you have this day. If you have children, remember that they grow up fast and you don’t want to use tomorrow wondering what you should have or could have done differently while they were little.
This doesn’t mean that we don’t have to plan for tomorrow. We should always be prepared, but not so focused on potential hazards that we live our lives filled with worry, stress and fear. We need to live each day as it is given. Each day we need to ‘cast all our cares’ on the Lord for He does care for us. (1 Peter 5:7).
Help us to live each day in accordance with your word and your will. Help us to remember that you care enough for us that we can bring our burdens, fears, sorrows, regrets and worries to you. That you will carry them for us. That we can lean on and rely upon you with all the things that cause us stress, worry and fear. That we know you are there for us in both our strength and weakness.
Father, help us to hide ourselves in your love, to bury ourselves in your peace that passes all understanding. To know that you care for us with all of our frailty and faults. Lord help us to grow in grace and strength through these things.
We thank you for helping us to know your will for our lives. But even when we are unsure and confused that you stand with us and for us. Help us to remember that when life seems filled with turmoil. Thank you Father for hearing our call and our prayer.
We pray this all in Jesus Name.
