Where Does Your Worry Stem From?

If you've read the Bible for any length of time, you will begin to notice it talks a lot about not worrying. Yet, most people worry every day of their lives—sometimes countless times a day. 

If you're a Jesus believing Christian, this should be easy. I mean we know if we believe in Jesus, then we will be saved.

We should believe this from the core of our being, right? Why then is believing we don't have to worry so difficult for most of us? 

I'm not sure I have all the answers for that phenomenon, but what I do know is there were countless people in the Bible who believed in God but found it hard to trust in Him for their every provision.

"Then Gideon said to God, 'If You will deliver Israel through me, as You have spoken, behold, I will put a fleece of wool on the threshing floor. If there is dew on the fleece only, and it is dry on all the ground, then I will know that You will deliver Israel through me, as You have spoken.'" (Judges 6:37) 

However, that still wasn't enough for Gideon, as he needed yet a second sign. Here was what he asked from God even after He performed the first miracle for Gideon.

"Then Gideon said to God, 'Do not let Your anger burn against me that I may speak once more; please let me make a test once more with the fleece, let it now be dry only on the fleece, and let there be dew on all the ground.' God did so that night; for it was dry only on the fleece, and dew was on all the ground." (Judges 6:39-40)
