WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW!

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Mathew 6:34).

The Lord has given this day to us. “This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24). Similarly God will bless tomorrow also. So do not worry about tomorrow and He will take care. “Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; (Psalm 55:22).

Many people keep on worrying about tomorrow. Do not worry about what to eat and what to wear and give those things for the Lord to take care. Pronounce with faith that God will do everything for you. Apostle James says ““…whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour that appears for a little time and then vanishes away” (James 4:14).

One old man was carrying two heavy bags on his back. An angel came to him and asked what was there in the bags. The old man said that one bag contained the worries of yesterday and the other bag had worries of tomorrow. The angel told to the old man that yesterday had gone and tomorrow had not yet come and why one should worry about those days. Saying this, the angel threw the two bags away. Like this many people keep on worrying over unnecessary things.

Tomorrow will take care of its own requirements. A small fish was worrying about tomorrow. Its worry was that if the big fishes and sharks drink all the water in the sea what it could do without water. The worry of a tiny bird was that if all the grains in the field are consumed by others what it could do to survive. Dear children of God, the Lord has created tomorrow and He has given it to you and hence praise Him for the same. “Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” Mathew 6:27, 34).

A true Christian official had a problem with his superior officer. The superior officer framed some untrue charges over the Christian official and had fixed the enquiry for the next day. In the hatred he had over his subordinate the higher official had already prepared a suspension order and kept it ready for signing after the enquiry. The Lord told the Christian officer not to worry about tomorrow’s enquiry and He will take care. Accordingly the higher official suffered an heart attack in the previous night itself and was dead before the enquiry.

To meditate: – “His favour is for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5).
