Today I would like to ask you to consider five concerns you have in your life. Now write them down. Good. Next please read the following verses from the book of Matthew 6:25-34:
“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food; and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Now take your list and write across it – Turning over to God!! Ask the Lord to send His Holy Spirit to be your helper so that you might live your life seeking His kingdom and His righteousness. Ask God to remove your anxiety. Thank God that He knows all of your needs and desires to meet each and every concern you have. Now read the Scripture again and be encouraged. We serve a God who is able to do exceedingly and abundantly far more than we could think, ask or get anxious about!! (Eph. 3:20-21) Glory to His name!!
