The Remedy for Worry
Posted by Danielle Stringer on
There are a million thoughts the enemy can throw your way. When we begin to believe the lies he tells, we may come to doubt the goodness of our Heavenly Father. So easily we can find ourselves in the middle of worry and anxiety about our current situation or future possibilities. I want to remind you today that your creator loves you so much!
“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, YET your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “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, oh you of little faith?
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day isits own trouble. -Matthew 6:25-34
Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows. -Matthew 10:29-31
What an amazing proclamation by Jesus!
Lord, please grant us the faith to lay our worry at Your feet and trust You with every aspect of our lives. We give You this day and pray to honor You with it!
