In the believer’s heart, there is only one reason to pursue the fruit of the spirit: because we seek to mirror Christ. Like a child who mimics everything their favorite parents does, we want to mimic the Lord and be just like Him.
We know God commands us not to worry, and we long to surrender all of our concerns to Him. But when uncertainty hits, our anxious thoughts gain power and momentum, drowning out all we know to be true. I understand that feeling. As I sought God's guidance, He showed me how to be strategic.
