- Knowing God makes worry uncharacteristic of your personal Christian life.
"The Lord is my shepherd..."
-->The shepherd provides for his sheep
-->The shepherd protects his sheep
-->The shepherd guides his sheep
-->The shepherd directs his sheep
- Worry is unnecessary!
John 10:14, 27-30 "I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine." "My sheep hear my voice and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one."
I am in the hands of Jesus, and God the Father! God knows where we have been and we have not lacked for what we needed. HE is in control! Worry is a control issue brought about by fear. And worry is also a sin. Worrying about the future is unprofitable.
So, why worry?
