It is one thing to follow God. It’s another thing to do it without worry.
In the last few months I’ve been super busy with deadlines. So busy that without God’s help I would fail. At times like this the thing I’m prone to do is worry.
“What if the book is late?”
“What if the story is lame?”
“What if …”
The only thing that saves me from the sea of doubts that threatens to drown me is going to God, focusing my eyes on Him. I can only focus on one thing, and as I look into His eyes the concerns around me blur.
I was reminded of this again as I read Hebrews 11:8 this morning (Amplified Version):
[Urged on] by faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed and went forth to a place which he was destined to receive as an inheritance; and he went, although he did not know or trouble his mind about where he was to go.
Yes, you may be following God, but are you troubling your mind in doing so? I urge you not only to give Him the right to your steps, but turn over those worried thoughts, too. I am … or at least I’m trying to. Won’t you join me?
