James 1:22-25

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.  Do what it says.  Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.  But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it — he will be blessed in what he does.  NIV

Wow.

This is pretty powerful advice.

I don’t want to be one who merely listens.  I don’t want to find all of these verses about worry and then still be bound by it!

This verse is right … there is freedom in God’s perfect law, His word.

Today, I will focus on not worrying, moment-by-moment; on trusting God and on following His word.
