Matthew 6:25-34 (KJV)

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

What is it that you worry about most?

Is it your health, your family, or perhaps your finances? Most Christians will claim to believe that the heavenly Father cares for us and His promises are dependable.

And yet far too many keep right on worrying.

It is important for us to distinguish between worry and legitimate concern. We undoubtedly want to be known as reliable members of society, which involves having a sense of responsibility so that we will carry our load and correct things in need of repair. But worry is more than that—it’s a corrosive poison that eats away at our trust in God.

What can we do about anxiety?

To start with, we need to be aware of the difference between being a believer in Jesus and being a follower of Jesus. A believer is one who has placed his trust in the Lord for salvation and has received the gift of eternal life.

A follower goes beyond that and attempts to know and obey God.

Through the Word of God, we as His followers become increasingly knowledgeable about His nature and His care for us. When we become fully convinced that our God is as good and loving as the Bible depicts Him, we will surely avoid the ways of worry.

Scripture teaches that God knows all our needs, concerns, and desires but still commands us not to worry. Think about that. Would He ever command something and not enable you to do it? Absolutely not!

He wants your trust and—if  You allow Him—will prove to you that worry is unnecessary.
