3 He will not allow your foot to [a]be moved;Psalm 121
He who keeps you will not slumber.
I think this thought is kind of simple and straight to the point. Here Pastor Prince reminds us of the uselessness of our worry.
We have a God, an Abba Father who loves us and promised to give us all things if rest in Him. The Lord Jesus Himself asked if our worry could add one cubit to our height.
This one kind touches me in deep places, because, compared to everyone else in my life I am a little on the shorter side.
And it can be annoying…
But worrying about it has never made me taller.
Then there is the fact that I have had this annoying habit to be anxious about everything…and let me tell you, that anxiety, has never gotten me anywhere.
2 It is useless for you to work so hardPsalm 127
from early morning until late at night,
anxiously working for food to eat;
for God gives rest to his loved ones.
So I have spent the last decade of my life worrying about everything and anything and I have nothing to show for it but pain and misery.
Maybe it’s time to let He who never sleeps nor slumbers take over? I mean the birds have it really good, and I am His daughter so I deserve much better than them.
26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one [j]cubit to his [k]stature?Matthew 6
And again, this isn’t a call to laziness because the food doesn’t literally fall in their mouths, but I need to remember that God gives success without strive (Proverbs 10:22). It a promise to me so why not hold onto it? We need to go out there and work on whatever our job is or our calling, but we can do it while resting in Him and not worrying about everything. He also promised in the word that He would teach us to profit and lead us in the way we should go.
Teach Lord, lead me, cause I am done with all this wandering.
17 Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer,Isaiah 48
The Holy One of Israel:
“I am the Lord your God,
Who teaches you to profit,
Who leads you by the way you should go.
Here is a blog post where Pastor Prince encourages us to not lose any sleep over things in our lives and let God do His thing.
