The coronavirus has disrupted our lives perhaps like nothing before it. One of the reasons for this is how quickly the virus has spread. Something else also spread just as fast as the virus. Fear and worry has begun to consume so many. Fear for their health, their jobs and their livelihood. While most people will never experience the coronavirus, every person alive understands what it means to worry.
Don’t confuse worry with concern. You can be concerned about a situation in your life without worrying about it. Concern is something you own and control. Worry is something that owns you. Worry over a sudden loss of income can affect your marriage and your home life. Worry about getting sick can affect your ability to focus on the things you need to get done.
Matthew 6:30 tells us, “But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith!” Notice that Jesus doesn’t say “You of no faith.” That is because we have Christians who believe in God but doubt His size.
I can’t say it more plainly; stop worrying. Additionally, grow in your understanding of God and in His power over all. Experience the growth that comes from trusting Him in difficult situations like the one you’re in. That experience will grow your view of God and shrink your problems every time.
For His kingdom,
