Abide in Christ

Worries easily present themselves when our minds and wills are not in line with God. When we see stressful circumstances under only our control we can quickly feel powerless and overwhelmed. 

The Bible tells us to always stay connected to or live “in Christ” like a relationship that a branch has to the vine it grows from. This means starting and going about your day mindful of His presence, His sovereignty and trusting Him with your uncertainties and challenging situations. It is in knowing He is available to help, guide, comfort, strengthen us when we need it that keeps us in the flow of His plans and purposes for our lives. 

Walking in this awareness, even if it is in the back of your mind at times, is powerful because it will keep worry from entering your consciousness. Abide in Christ on this “Not Gonna Worry” Wednesday. 

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.  John 15:5 ESV
