Yes you do! You have the right to disobey God because your circumstances (apples) are different? He understands that you need to worry about your situation (apples). It shows how responsible you are.
The Apostle Paul said to the Philippian Church, “Do not be anxious for anything.” The Holy Spirit inspired that statement. Apparently He didn’t realize you would have circumstances when it would make it okay to be anxious.
Solomon said, “Trust the Lord with ALL your heart. Do NOT lean on your own understanding…”
But, the thing is….Solomon didn’t cover your base. He didn’t realize that sometimes people need to lean on their own understanding. It’s only smart, right? Besides, it’s the responsible thing for you to do. Your cunning will solve most any situation as long as you are conscientious enough to worry about it!
On the other hand, maybe not so much. Maybe your stress factor will only complicate the issue. Perhaps the tension will help you sleep better. It’s possible that you enjoy the stomach pain. After all, it’s helping make your relationships better, isn’t it?
-Or – You could train yourself to…
…pillow your head on the promises of God.
Ultimately, the choice is yours. If you can convince God that your situation is the exception to His thoughts…then…
go for it. Do it your way! Stress out! Worry!
However, maybe you’d like to learn what real responsibility is? Huh, whuh-duh-yuh-think? PERHAPS…just perhaps you’d rather learn being responsible is actually being RESPONSE-ABLE….Able to respond.
For me…Trusting God ALWAYS works out best! He goes before me (instead of me going before Him) to make the crooked places straight and the rough places smooth.
My part: Enjoy My Life! That always works when God is Large and In Charge!
