17 May God Leads You
Worrying is one job you cannot farm out, but you can overcome it. There’s no better place to begin than in Psalm 23:2. “He leads me beside the still waters,” David declares. “He leads me.” God isn’t behind me, yelling, “Go!” He’s ahead of me bidding, “Come.” He’s in front, clearing the path, cutting the brush. Standing next to the rocks, he warns, “Watch your step there.”
Isn’t this what God gave the children of Israel? He promised to supply them with manna each day. But he told them to collect only one day’s supply at a time. Matthew 6:34 says (The Message), “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” God is leading you. Leave tomorrow’s problems until tomorrow.
