Therefore do not worry or be anxious (perpetually uneasy, distracted), saying, ‘What are we going to eat?’ or ‘What are we going to drink?’ or ‘What are we going to wear?’ 32 For the [pagan] Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; [but do not worry,] for your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right—the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also.
34 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Like most people, I resist things I don’t like that I can’t really do anything about. One day the Lord said to me, ‘learn to take life as it comes’. I believe this is a lesson for all of us. What He was saying to me was that I needed to stop fighting the things I could do nothing about.
If we are traveling somewhere and suddenly find ourselves in heavy traffic due to an accident or bad weather, it doesn’t do any good to resist it. Only time or God’s supernatural intervention will change the situation. Why not relax and try to find some way to enjoy the time?
God has equipped us to handle life as it comes, which is why He tells us to only focus on today. He knows that if we spend time worrying about issues beyond our control, we will become tired and frustrated. Hence, Beloved, you do not need to waste time trying to change and control things outside your power. Set your mind to what God has placed in front of you and let Him take care of the rest.
Lord, I realize that I can’t control everything, but I can trust You. Right now, I make a decision do my best with what You’ve given me and leave the rest to You.
