We often don’t see things as they really are. As a result, we draw incorrect conclusions about what’s going on in our lives. Then we spend lots of creative energy worrying about might or might not happen. And it’s all because we don’t have a worry-free perspective.
Things are not always as they seem. How you view the world will color everything that happens to you. How many times have you worried about something that never came to pass?
As you look at what’s happening in your life right now, here are three thoughts you can use to develop a worry-free perspective.
1. God is the source of your provision.
God is the source of all ultimate reality. In Him you live and move and have your being (Acts 17:28). Nothing is outside of His control.
God owns everything. The earth is his footstool (Isaiah 66:1). He owns all the beasts in the forest and the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalm 50:10). He has all resources at his disposal.
Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount that God will take care of all your needs (Mathew 6:26, 30). So you don’t need to focus on your needs. So why do you still worry?
2. Your actions will show what you believe.
God says all things work together for good to those who love Him (Romans 8:28). When you worry, you show by your actions that you don’t trust God.
What comes out of your mouth will show what is in your heart. Because whatever is in your heart will eventually overflow out of your mouth (Luke 6:45).
You can know in a practical sense just how much you trust God based on what you do and what you say. So based on your actions, how much do you trust God—really?
3. Trust God to take care of your situation.
Let your perspective start with the belief that God is in control and He will take care of you. Then let that color how you view everything else.
Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and God will take care of everything else (Matthew 6:33). Let what is true dictate what you see. Not the other way around.
If you will start with a perspective of trusting God, and continually reinforce that worry-free perspective, you will live a much more peaceful life (Philippians 4:6-7). And you will worry a lot less.
