Noah, he did not spend time worrying about the animals God chose, or how they were going to board the boat; neither did Noah concern himself about the rain flood, he pressed his way through. It is essential that we learn to follow Noah’s lead and trust God for every detail of our life that is beyond our power.

This world brings about many challenges such as food and shelter, finances, pressures of relationships, our children, job market, and survival. Jesus teaches us the simple principle of trust through nature. Birds do not worry where the next meal comes from, nor do they worry about where to live, they believe God .Consider this ” If you want to fly, give up everything that weighs you down (unknown author).
The Bible says that you are more important to him than the birds, therefore; if the birds trust him for their needs, then you should do the same.).
Secret #3: Give your worries to God. (1 Peter 5:5-7).
Do you constantly ponder your thoughts carrying unnecessary stresses and anxieties on your shoulders daily? The definition of anxiety is fear of what might happen.

Trusting God, for what you stand in need of, and believing that he will handle your situation is all you need to do, worrying is not a part of the package.
