DO YOUR WORRIES ROB YOU OF SLEEP?

 

   Do your worries rob you of sleep?  Are

they the same when you awake?  The Bible

says that instead of worrying we should seek

God. Matthew 6:31,33. “Therefore do not

worry...But seek first the kingdom of God and

His righteousness.” The familiar verse John 3:16

tells you that God loves you! Be assured that He

wants you to come into His care, into His family.

   In Matthew 11:28 -30 Jesus invites you saying,

 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy

laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke

upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle and

lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your

souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is

light.” You don’t have to bear your burden alone!

A yoke is for two. He wants you to be in tandem

with Him. The neat thing about this is that you

don’t have to know how He can help -- just

believe that He can and He will.

     Proverbs 3:5,6 states, “Trust in the Lord

with all your heart, and lean not on your own

understanding; in all your ways acknowledge

Him, and He shall direct your paths. ‘

   Someone I know was out of work once for

fifteen months -a distressing worldly situation.

He was blessed because he already was a child

of God. He worked hard at finding a job, send-

ing out resumes and letters - without success.

He was concerned about his family but he trusted

God and didn’t worry.  As a child of God he took

comfort in the promise of God assured in Romans

8:28.  His chapel family was continually praying

for God’s solution..

   In a very unusual way he finally received a job

offer that was totally different from his work

background.  It sounded appealing and he took

the job. He took out the last of his savings to

buy a used car to get to work.

   God works in mysterious ways; but, He

always succeeds. SEEK HIM - TRUST HIM.

 

You will NEVER be disappointed with God’s

care over you even in time of distress!

    Open up your Bible and learn of Him

 

    Romans 10:17 says “Faith comes by hearing and

hearing by the Word of God.”
