Jesus said “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.” Matthew 6:31-32
What is worry? The Oxford dictionaries defines worry as feel or cause to feel anxious or troubled about real or potential problems.
Cease to worry
I was in the Church the other day and the Minister’s sermon for the day was on worry. He said that the cause of worry in the life of a Christian is the lack of trust in God and that most Christians come from a line of people who speak faith, but act out of fear.
I have ceased to worry over the things of life, yes it might not easy but I have learnt it, to walk with God, you have do it in His terms, so I had to cast all my burden upon Him (Psalm 55:22, 1 Peter 5:7) and let go of everything. Rather than worry, why not take it to God in prayer. Worry is the outward sign of fear. God has promised care of those that follow Him (Isaiah 41:10).
There was a time we were searching for a new house to live in, my wife was so worried about everything, and I came up with an idea:”Why don’t you make a list of all the things you’re worrying about. And take it to God in prayer, while you are waiting for Him to answer, stand on His Word and don’t give your worries a voice. If God is either unwilling or unable to take care of it, you always start worrying again but at least give Him a chance. God surprised her beyond her wildest dreams. So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Matthew 6:28-30
