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.

“And he said to his disciples, ‘Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?’”

(Luke 12:22-26)

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.
