things to never worry about


Call me a social media junky or whatever you must.  I enjoy the connections on Facebook, the learning and friendships from Twitter and even the ministry contacts via linkedin.  I check each one pretty often.  Sunday evening as I was scrolling through Facebook I came across this picture.  It is simply 5 things that we, as God’s kids, don’t have to worry about.  Profound truth.

We will never be forsaken.  That is God’s promise, and God doesn’t break His promises as we humans do.  He is always with us.

Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.”

You are useful to God and always will be.  Your life has purpose.  You have meaning.  It is all based on what God says about you.  No one or no thing can change that fact.

But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it.  How strange a body would be if it had only one part!  Yes, there are many parts, but only one body.

Our future is totally secure and in God’s hands.  His plan is for your good, your success and for loads and loads of hope.  You are God’s kid. 

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

God wants to hear from you.  We are not bothering God when we pray.  Like a parent loves to hear from their child, God wants to hear from us and often.

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

We have to battle lots of lies, and one of the biggest lies is that we are not forgiven.  That is a lie.  It is time we believe what God says and even tell others.

1 John 1:9
NLT
But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

These are simple truths that out to help us get through the tough days and help us shout from the tops of the trees on the good days.  God can’t lie.  It is against His character and His nature.  God says we are His, we have the biggest and best hope and that nothing, absolutely nothing can change this truth.

Ask God to help you believe this, claim it and share it.  Praise God for the things we will never have to worry about!
