It’s hard for us to fathom that God does NOT worry, because we often imagine that God is like we are, and–sometimes—we worry like the world is on fire! We often don’t even know worry is gripping us until we develop physical symptoms. For example, I can always tell when I’ve been worrying because I wake up in the morning and my jaw hurts. Guess I’m what you’d call a “jaw-clenching” worrier.

Worry affects people in different ways—hair loss, wrinkles, weight loss or gain, irritability, depression, anxiety, etc.

Why doesn’t God have ANY of these problems?

Perhaps it’s because He knows the future and that His love has already won the battle against all the evil we worry about. We try to control circumstances. He offers His power, wisdom and love to those who desire to live in His presence. Instead of worrying and trying to control our circumstances and the people around us to shape our future in a way that we think is best, we can simply turn to Him.

Can you comprehend the wisdom of being still long enough to get close to God?  His Word says:

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalms‬ ‭46:10‬)

When our HEART is close to Almighty God, we are able to release our problems to The Creator and Sustainer of earth. We CAN control our heart. We can let it get lost in God. When we do, we find freedom like we’ve never known before. Worry disappears under the mighty shadow of God’s wings.

When we keep our close heart to God, we become confident in Him. HE is always confident in Himself. He is never intimidated by the free will of those He created or the tragic or unpredictable circumstances His creatures create.

When we’re close to Almighty God, we know–He’s got us and He doesn’t worry—so, neither do we!
