“Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?” Matthew 6:25
Leo F. Buscaglia once said, “Worry, never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.” Worrying can be helpful in some ways, but it becomes more problematic and psychological when we are preoccupied with it. Millions of people present in this world wake up every day to run activities. Different works and duties are found in every corner being done by humans. We attached to our burdens, daily tasks, and responsibilities, more than they attached to us.
Unfortunately, many life has enslaved to the worries of this world even though they are believers. We get easily distracted with little challenges and necessities of this world and give little or no concentration to the creator of all things. We don’t even realize that these things are affecting us physically, mentally, and spiritually. Jesus said, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” Matthew 6:27.
God has made and given us all things, His promises are real and available, and we are to be masters and controllers of all other things in this world, including the content of our worries. John 16:33. We should not worry about what others think of us, but rather how we respond to them.
Just like the fowls of the air don’t worry about how or where they will get their food, because their creator already made provisions for that, the same way we shouldn’t be filled with worries, believing that our Father in heaven will provide. However, I’m not saying we shouldn’t work, plan or get on to your daily activities, as a matter of fact, we have to be diligent with everything we do but do not allow the thought of tomorrow take over your mind.
George F. Burns says, “If you ask what the single most important key to longevity is, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress, and tension…” Therefore, cast your cares on Jesus and believe He is the ultimate supplier of all needs. Hold on to Jesus, because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 says, “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”
1. Thank you, Father, for the cares and support over my life, keep being my supplier, Lord.
2. Commit all your worries into God’s hand now and then, let him take care of them. PRAY NOW.
3. Moreover, remember, if you are worried about something else, then ask God to help you.
