Don’t worry about tomorrow because Jesus is already there

By: Lisa Wilmore

My Dear Friends,

What are your fears if or when tomorrow comes? What anxieties do you consume thinking about the outcome of tomorrow? Well, allow me to encourage you to “Don’t worry about tomorrow because Jesus is already there?”

There may be a wealth of hours spent on worrying about the next moments in our lives. In fact, we may become paralyzed with fear of what the next moments may bring only to find out that things are not as bad as we thought. This is definitely a display of human nature. Consequently, our yielding to negative thoughts will make life more difficult.

In Matthew’s gospel, Jesus reminds us, “Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on…Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take no thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof (Matthew 6:25 and 34). Worrying about tomorrow will unfavorably affect our trust in God. Also, it will cause us to think more about the things of tomorrow rather than thanking Him for today’s blessings. In addition, worrying consumes our thoughts and valuable time in which we should use to help “the lost” Accept Jesus as their Savior.

To make mention of, you may be worried about a child’s instability, a loved one’s drinking problem, money to pay a certain bill, lack of friends, rearing children in this world, mortgage payment, financial security, etc. Nevertheless, worrying about these issues and others will damage your health, disrupt your ability to produce effectively on your job and even cause you to disassociate yourselves with family members and friends.

It is a fact that “we do not know what tomorrow holds, but we do know who holds tomorrow”. Jesus is already in our tomorrows. He has been there before our existence and will be there until the day He returns. We must have faith in Him to take care of whatever we need in our tomorrows.

During a conversation with someone dear to my heart, who expressed sadness and worry about a family member, it was evident that worry had taken its toll on her attitude and praise. Unquestionably, worry had become her friend. So, I did what any Christian would do-encourage her in the Lord. I shared with her that Jesus is already in her tomorrow and knows what she needs.

He will provide and take care of us as he does the birds and every other living creature.

We must trust Him!!!
