Do Not Be Anxious

Jesus commanded us not to be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Today’s trouble is enough for our mind to resolve, for God will provide us with the strength to overcome whatever ails us. Daily we are to look to God for guidance.

“Do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear? For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” (Matthew 6:31-34)

We should not worry about the coming days. We should meditate on the present moment as if it were our last. Whatever may be stealing our thoughts is seldom important. Whatever we need is seldom in our thoughts.

If we come to rely on God for all things, He will provide for our needs. We ought not to worry, as worrying brings anxiety. What is anxiety? To fear is to be anxious and not trust God. Trust God and he will relieve the anxiety.

During these troubled days, we have even more reason to give of our hearts to the Lord our God. He promised to look after us and provide for us. There should be no doubt of His awesome and majestic power.

If God could create the universe and everything in it, is our trouble greater that even He could not solve it?

God is beyond the impossible. Do not be anxious.
