If we are honest with ourselves, we would see that we make up our own self-centered agendas for so many aspects in our lives. We think we are taking control over situations we are worried about, but this is rarely true and almost always leads to more stress and worry.
For example, approaching a loved one with a plan to fix their problem will most often be met with a defensive posture. They are going to smell your agenda miles away and see any unhealthy motives you have. A better way to help the person, might be to seek understanding instead of convincing them to adopt your plan and goals. Meet people where they are at. Pray for God to use you and operate under His perfect plan in His perfect timing.
Ultimately all our worrisome situations are in God’s hands anyway and will be dealt with much more effectively when done under His will. Give up your agenda on this “Not Gonna Worry” Wednesday.
for dominion belongs to the Lord
and he rules over the nations.
