Five Things God's Children Need Not Worry About

1. Vengeance. We need not "pay back" for wounds, loss, or crime against us. Vengeance belongs to God (Deuteronomy 32-35). God will take care of injustice.

2. Future. We cannot change it. It is in God's hands. God takes care of things differently than man does. "Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom" (Luke 12:32). We can live faithfully in the moment, the hour, and in the day.

3. Problems, in the Kingdom. When brethren are unfaithful, friends or servants, we can pray about each one specifically and leave them in God's hands. These problems test our faith. Hannah left Samuel with Eli whose vision was dim and where his sons behaved badly. Yet Hannah left him in faith, prayed for him, and the kingdom undoubtedly. Samuel was in God's hands and prospered.

4. Things We Do Not Understand. Deuteronomy 29:29, The secret things belong to God but what He has revealed belongs to us, and our children belong to our children's children forever. What we do not understand, we leave in Jesus hands. Often in time we understand it. Our works can reflect what has been revealed to us. Faith without works is dead.

5. What Others Are Doing. Peter asked Jesus in John 21:21-23 about
another disciple, possibly John. Jesus answered, "What is that to
thee? Follow thou Me." Psalms 11:3 asks, "If the foundations be destroyed, what shall the righteous do?" Keep doing what you know to be right with God. Ecclesiastes 5:8 tells us if you see violent oppression in a province, marvel not at the matter as "He that is higher than the highest regardeth."
