“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

Matthew 4:19

Do you feel God is asking you to do something? Maybe you say: “God, I’ll do it but I need clarity. I will do this, but I need you to fill in the blanks here. I need to know how this is going to go from beginning to end. I can trust you, but I need you to fill me in on the details first.” In that way, we reject God’s promise. God won’t give you clarity. He wants you to say yes or no. Maybe you reject His promises in fear, by saying: “God, don’t you know that I’m the responsible one? My family depends on me to worry. If I don’t worry, they are going to be worried, because I am the only one that takes care of all this stuff.” Don’t find your purpose in worrying. Sometimes we find a meaning in life by being the worry wart. Trust me, your family doesn’t need you to worry more. In fact, if you read their hearts and minds, they would probably wish you worried less and laughed more, and did more fun things. So say yes to what God is asking you to do, although you don’t know all the details. And remember: You don’t have to worry. You can trust your friend Jesus.


Lord, thank you for being a light unto my path. Teach us how to follow without full clarity. Give us trust, without worrying.


What next step do you need to take in trust?
