God with what if trust

Who should put something under the responsibility of God's elect? It is God who justifies.

Romans 8:33

Life is littered with what-if.

What if there isn't enough money? Or resources to walk around? Or is the economy not improving? What if the person we trusted breaks their promise? Or is he not fulfilling his obligation? Or does the ball drop completely? What if our health starts to fail? Or do our loved ones die? Or are we alone?

Uncertainty surrounds us. The possibility of change can raise endless what-if questions that worry us. We all face legitimate challenges that need to be addressed, and if we allow fear to take root, we create room for worry and fear to build a business in our lives. Once they start working, they don't want to stop.

If we have enough time, worries can strangle life out of us. Indeed, when the word first appeared in Old English, the word "worry" meant "to strangle". Over the centuries, it has been "biting and shaking" much like a dog treated a rubber toy. Finally, the word was understood as "harass or annoy". In the early nineteenth century, concern took on a more modern meaning, "persistent (or being) anxious".

Worries can cause us to lose touch with reality and further away from the truth.

Jesus knew that. Maybe that's one of the reasons why he kept saying to the disciples, "Don't be afraid!" Jesus never wanted us to be dominated by worries and fears, but to be shaped by faith and trust. Jesus realized that worry has a way of pulling God off the scene and making us believe that we are responsible for keeping everything together.

We'll never get rid of all that what if in life, but when they come, we can be sure that we won't meet them alone. God is with us. We can choose to face uncertainty with faith and begin to achieve a higher level of trust, contentment, joy, peace, security and tranquility.
