Watch Against Worry

Key Verse

“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted in me? Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance” (Psalm 42:5).

Text — Psalm 42:1-5


According to Mahatman Gandhi, “There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.”  Jesus Christ warned His disciples about the futility and the danger of worry (Matthew 6:25, 27). Worry is evidence of lack of trust in God’s promises and ability to take care of our needs. The Lord watches over you and is deeply concerned about your welfare if you are truly born again.

Christ foretold that believers would have tribulations on earth and encouraged them to live in peace and be of good cheer. Unpleasant situations drain us of the joy of salvation if we welcome them with worry and anxiety. These experiences tend to put our faith and Christian conviction to test. For some of us, the worry could be about examinations, recurring illness, and our future. We forget to take our burdens to the Lord and leave them with Him. Trust in the Lord, persist in prayer and patiently wait for Him to glorify His name in your life.


Trust in the Lord


Worry is not the solution but faith in God is!

Prayer for today

Lord, I exchange all my worries for your peace.
