No Worries! (Matthew 6:34)

During my recent vacation in Australia, I was impressed by the affable and approachable nature of the people. And wherever I went and whomever I met, there was a familiar phrase whenever a problem arose, “No worries!” At first, I thought it was trite and spoken as an afterthought. But I observed its use in every social setting: from children to grandparents, from casual encounters to married couples, at work or play-this ubiquitous phrase abounded. I began to enjoy hearing it, so much so, that I began using it. Somehow, it seemed more appropriate, friendly, almost inviting whenever a problem arose.

 

But we were on vacation, at rest, admittedly low-stress! Within a few days we returned home and although I tried to keep this same mind-set, I knew I was reverting to my usual anxious ways. One evening, when things were not going as smoothly as I hoped, I verbally expressed my frustration to my wife. With a smile, she turned to me and said, “No worries!” My anxiety disappeared and frustrations melted as my mind recalled the positive attitude of the Australians.

 

Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6:34 (ESV)

 

God reminds us of the futility of anxiety and worry. He reminds us that we could drown ourselves in the worries of every minute detail of life. He knows what we are like! He created us! And because of this He also has given us the solution! Place your trust in God! Seek first His kingdom and all of your needs will be taken care.

 

This does not mean that your troubles and conflicts will disappear nor does it mean that life will not be painful. It means that worries are not your concern. Your focus should be the Sovereign and Supreme God who is in control even when circumstances and your life seem random and chaotic.

 

There are few lives as chaotic and harassed as was the life of our Lord Jesus Christ. Yet, He remained steadfast in His mission to serve God, the Father. And because He was faithful and accomplished His mission, if we confess our sins, repent and place our trust in Him, we can truly proclaim, “No worries!!”

 

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
