Max Lucado writes, “Anxiety is like a meteor shower of “what-ifs.” The sky is falling, and it’s falling disproportionately on you.”

Anxiety ain’t fun! One would think Christians would be exempt from worry but we are not. It’s enough to make us wonder if the apostle Paul was out of touch with reality when he wrote in (Philippians 4:6), “Be anxious for nothing.”

Is that what he meant? Not exactly. He wrote the phrase in the present active tense—implying an ongoing state. “Don’t let anything in life leave you perpetually breathless and in angst.” The presence of anxiety is unavoidable, but the prison of anxiety is optional.

Could you use some calm? Of course you could. We all could! We all could use a word of comfort and God is ready to give it. Just look up, not to the meteor shower of what-if’s, but the marvelous shower of God’s riches in glory for you in Christ Jesus.
