Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things! (Joel 2:21)
When I begin to worry about the future, I always try to remind myself of what the Lord has done in the past. He’s got a pretty good history of coming through in the clutch!
Here’s what I wrote in Give Up Worry For Good…
Most of us can easily recall frightening incidents from the past. If we think about it long enough, we can even re-create the sick feeling that we experienced while dealing with these issues. Today I’d like you to look at something that is more pleasant, but easily overlooked. Concentrate on all the great things the Lord has done, throughout history and in your own life. Unless you do this, you’ll never have the confidence in God that is needed to stop worrying.
No matter what you’re facing right now, remind yourself that God can handle it. The mere fact that you’re still alive proves that you’ve survived every one of your past problems. Thanks be to God.
