What-iffing not only zaps our energy, it also indicates a lack of trust in God’s wise and loving control over our affairs. He who cares to number every hair on our heads-something not even the vainest of us bothers to do-cares much more about our trusting him with the upkeep of our homes, our health, our mobility, and our relationships with other people. Since he not only cares about these things but is also able to do something about them, he wants us to leave the ordering to him.
When we trust God to run our lives, we find that we are free to enjoy him and other people-free to live and love-because he is taking care of things. We are designed to glorify God and to enjoy him, not to spend our energies worrying about the details of daily life or fearing the pain of major crises. He will always supply what he knows we really need for every circumstance we face. Freedom from fear comes from believing that. It comes also from opening our hearts to embrace God’s Supply, even if his supply differs from what we thing we need.
