If Jesus can be trusted, then…
- He did die to provide forgiveness for your sins.
- He did rise from the dead and ascend back to heaven.
- He is the King and Judge over all of creation.
If the risen King Jesus can be trusted, then when he says,
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
~ Matthew 6:33 NLT
Then obviously, God will take care of all of our needs if we’ll simply put the kingdom first.
Worry is ultimately a sign of unbelief.
That doesn’t mean a healthy sense of caution is a sin. God created us with an innate desire to avoid danger.
It also doesn’t mean that struggling with anxiety as a result of trauma or even a chemical imbalance in the brain is a sin. God has the utmost compassion for anyone who suffers from such.
What it means is that choosing to doubt what God has clearly revealed in his word, and choosing to dwell on those doubts, is a sin of unbelief.
When we worry about things God has already promised us he’s taken care of, we’re ultimately making a statement about the trustworthiness of Jesus.
Today, intentionally choose to trust Jesus. In spite of your doubts. In spite of your fears.
Lean into his promises like a saved child of God, a redeemed believer delivered from the power of even death itself!
