Have You Ever Worried?

Have you ever started to worry about anything? To say no would probably be less than honest.

Hezekiah king of Judah was under severe threat from the king of Assyria (2 Kings 18: 7- 19:37). He took a letter from the Assyrians and spread it before God in the temple as he cried out to God in prayer. God heard the prayers of this righteous king and destroyed the Assyrian enemy.

God tells us to cast our cares and burdens on Him and He will never let us be moved (1Peter 5:7; Ps 55:22). One of my favorite passages in the Bible is Matthew 11:28-30: “Come to me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light" (Matt 11:28-30; KJV).

When we worry, we labor and try to think things out for ourselves. When we seek to learn from Him and do it His way we come under His yoke. Yoked to Jesus is not an equal bearing of the load but He carries us with His power, love and wisdom.

Jesus painted such beautiful pictures for us in Matthew 6:25-34. Here He tells us not to worry but to trust God. Don’t fuss and fret He says; just look to God and see how He cares for the birds or clothes the Lilies of the field. God will do better for us, His children, than you can ask or imagine (Eph 3:20).
