Why worry when you can pray?

“So never worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” - Matthew 6:34

There is a song that comes to mind:

Why worry, when you can pray
Trust in Jesus and he will make a way.

If you have an impending surgery, examination, travel, interview, or childbirth for instance, the human thing is that you will be anxious. 

The truth however is that worrying will not make things better or guarantee your safety. The best way to take worry out of your life is to be prepared. 

If you have an examination coming up and you don’t study, pray all you want, Jesus will not make you pass that examination. In fact he will consider you a person wishing to reap what you did not sow. Study hard and he will not only open your mind to understand what you are studying but he will ensure that you not only get to your exam venue safely and on time, but that you actually remember when it counts, all that you have learnt. 

In every area of your life, put in the work you need to, do your own part and leave the rest to God. Sometimes it may seem that all the roads are blocked despite your hard work, that’s when the Lord takes over. Do your bit and believe completely that he will make a way for you where there seems to be no way. 

Only believe, put on your best clothes and move right ahead. Trust in Jesus and victory will be yours.

Have a blessed day.
