When I resolved to radically apply myself to the words of Jesus Christ in the following scripture, the Holy Spirit helped me, and amazing things began to happen.

Matthew 6:34 KJV
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

I began it as an experiment—that way, even if I had failed, I would still feel good having at least tried it. But then the Holy Spirit took over and made it into an absolutely fantastic experience.

And, so far, I’m learning quite a lot from the experience. I’ve already shared two of those lessons in the previous two posts:

Lesson #1. The very first thing I learnt is that this word runs contrary to the way humans think, speak and live.

Lesson #2. The second thing I learnt is that tomorrow is far better at taking care of itself, than you or today could ever hope to.

Now here’s another thing I discovered.

Lesson #3. The pressure to worry about tomorrow is unavoidable. But you can deflect it back to God through relentless prayer.

Philippians 4:6-7 NIV
[6] Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. [7] And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 5:7 NIV
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

So, when all those worries and anxieties about tomorrow invade my thoughts, what should I do?

Should I welcome and indulge them? This is what most people do. This is the pathway to chronic worries and anxieties that opens the door to all kinds of mental and emotional demons.

Should I try to push the thoughts away through will power and positive thinking? Theoretical talkers teach this; as though it were possible. This however is the delusional paradise of fools.

The more effective approach is to get on your knees and PRAY. Take all those things you’re worried about and present them as requests to God. Hand your tomorrow over to God. Cast it upon the Lord through prayer.

In other words, prayer is the divine substitute for worries and anxieties.

The result is a heart and mind that is completely guarded by God’s incomprehensible peace. A mind that has absolutely no thought for the morrow.

Now, instead of wrestling with all those worries and anxieties in your mind, why not convert them into prayer requests and list them in the comments before God?
