whyWORRY – part 3

DO WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY AND LET GOD TAKE CARE OF TOMMORROW

Today’s scripture: 1 Kings 19:1-18  (Elijah, main character) 

God was ready to teach Ahab and the baal prophets a lesson.  The baal prophets came up empty when trying to get baal to make it rain.  ww_slideshow_npcc12Elijah poked fun at baal and the prophets.  Elijah was confident of Yahweh, his Father and his God.  God brought down fire on the water drenched alter and soon made it rain in the barren land.

Elijah was threatened by Jezebel and he ran.  He ran to the mountain of God.  God made Elijah realize that he had forgotten that in all his circumstances that he could do nothing about tomorrow, but trust God and God has a plan for tomorrow.

Here are a couple of specific things said by Andy:

  • Today’s worries can blank out what God is doing today
  • In the moments of worry, we forget about God’s faithfulness in the past

Main point: 

DO WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY AND LET GOD TAKE CARE OF TOMMORROW

  1. may we never forget what He has done! The God of the past is the God of today, in valley or mtn top.

  2. It’s all part of the master plan of the enemy…distract us from focus on Jesus and His providence any way possible. Worry and fear are severe distractions!

    Peter was doing just fine on that water as long as his eyes were focused on Jesus! The day to day monotony and grind gives way to miracles as long as the focus is on the one who breathed the stars into the midnight sky!

  3. worrying makes u sick in many different way. giving it to god gives u PEACE.
