Worrying is one job you cannot farm out — but you can overcome it! And there’s no better place to begin than David's beloved "Shepherd Psalm":

He leads me beside the still waters... (Psalm 23:2 ESV).

David declares: "He leads me!"

God isn’t behind me, yelling, "Go!" He’s ahead of me bidding, "Come!" He’s in front, clearing the path and cutting the brush. Standing next to the rocks, He warns watch your step there.

Isn’t this what God gave the children of Israel?

He promised to supply them with manna each day, but He told them to collect only one day’s supply at a time. Jesus reminded us to give our entire attention to what God is doing right now; don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow (Matthew 6:34).

God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. God is leading you — so, leave tomorrow’s problems until tomorrow.
