I love knowing that I need not fret about tomorrow, for tomorrow can take care of itself. Yesterday I was reading a devotional that was from a book I have in my library entitled, "Keep A Quiet Heart" by Elisabeth Elliot. I don't read it on a regular basis but saw a quote from the book that stirred in my heart. She was quoting from Martin Luther "He who believes in God is not careful for the morrow, [that means not worried about tomorrow]but labors joyfully and with a great heart. "For He giveth His beloved, as in sleep'. They must work and watch, yet never be careful or anxious, but commit all to Him, and live in serene tranquility, and with a quiet heart, as one who sleeps safely and quietly."
In today's current economic and political state of unrest, many are fretting and yet all the worrying in the world will not change what happens tomorrow. May we learn to keep a quiet heart and be steadfast in spirit.
Lord, help us to trust in You, and not be anxious for anything but in everything by prayer and supplication let our requests be made known to You. Amen.
