During these days of COVID-19, Scripture encourages us to not worry.
Matthew 6:25 says:
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?”Matthew 6:25
This is easier said than done, especially when you might be worrying about where your next paycheck may come from or where your stimulus money is or even where your next meal will be.
Take heart my friends, God is with you. He sees you. He cares for the birds of the air, and you are far more precious to Him than these creatures scripture says.
Matthew closes this passage with…
‘Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”Matthew 6:34
Today, as you go about your business, remember the following:
- God loves you
- He sees you
- He cares for you
- He knows what you are experiencing
- He will carry you through this experience
May today be a beautiful reminder of God’s goodness and care for you. Below is a short prayer you can pray today.
Prayer: God we give you our day, and ask that you would grant us peace and comfort during this health crisis. I ask you to meet the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs today. Thank you for your promises which are new each day.
