There’s bad news every day – war, disease, disasters, and death. It’s like there’s something wrong with the world. As long as ng as you look only at the situation in the world today, it will be very hard for you to overcome stress and worries because it’s true there are many problems and the future is unknown to us.
But you have to just your eyes beyond what’s wrong and learn to focus on what’s right. Focusing on trusting God and His goodness. You can’t see the future no matter how hard you try. It may bring more problems or it may not. And worrying about it will not change anything. You will make yourself sick and unhappy. Of course, although we forget. Jesus said, “Can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” (Matthew 6:27).
We don’t know the future but God does. And even more importantly, God is in control of the future. Because He loves us He will take care of us. He can be trusted to watch over us.
These two phases should always remain in our hearts as we think about the future and the things with our world. They are “Give thanks” and “Trust God.” First, learn to give thanks to God for the good you have in your life and the ways He blesses you. Even when life gets difficult, we should thank God for all He does for us – none of what we deserve.
My pastor is always saying, “ If you have a roof over your head, a bed to sleep in, eat at least once a day, and have a vehicle to drive. You are rich.” Most people in other countries don’t have that..
If you choose to let God into your heart and become born again. Then you can trust Him to take care of you in the future. The worries of this world dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but God already knows your needs. “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added” ( Matthew 6:33)..
