People are overwhelmed with worries about all the things they have to do and all the things they want to get. The stress strangles what they hear. There are people who hear, but what they hear is crowded out and nothing goes right as they go about their lives worrying about tomorrow, making money, and having fun. Be on your guard. Don’t let the sharp edge of your expectation get dulled by parties and drinking and shopping. Otherwise, that Day is going to take you by complete surprise, spring on you suddenly like a trap, Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.
Mark 4:19 ~ Luke 8:14 ~ Luke 21:34 ~ Philippians 4:6 ~ 1 Peter 5:7
