ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO ASK GOD FOR THAT?

How many nights of you lay in your bed warm, cozy, safe bed worrying?

How many times have you made the statement, “What are we going to eat tonight?”

How many times have you prayed and asked God for more, while you already have more than enough?

Think about what Jesus told us in His Sermon on the Mount…

Matthew 6:34  (NKJV)

34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

God is telling us that when we have enough for today, we are blessed. However, when we have more than enough for today, we are abundantly blessed.

It’s easy to take things for granted in our abundant society.

The next time you find yourself worrying about or asking for something you don’t need, stop and thank God for what you already have. Because…

Someone wishes they had a bed in which to worry.

Someone is asking, “What are we going to eat tonight” not out of choice, but out of desperation.

While you are worrying about tomorrow, someone is praying for enough for today.

1 Timothy 6:6-8  (NKJV)

Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, [a]and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.

  1. I think another approach to worrying also worth considering is found in these texts: 1 Peter 5:7, Philippians 4:6-7. It is important to remember to keep what is causing us trouble before the Lord. As for the types of prayers in such situations, we do need to be grateful for what we have. In fact, those passages from Phillipians which say “be careful for nothing” [which according to Strong’s Concordance the word “careful” means “to be anxious about”] add “thanksgiving” alongside making your requests known to God.
