Matthew 6:28-34. NCBV.

25 “So I tell you, don’t worry about the food or drink you need to live, or about the clothes you need for your body. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothes. 26 Look at the birds in the air. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. And you know that you are worth much more than the birds. 27 You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it.

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? Look at how the lilies in the field grow. They don’t work or make clothes for themselves. 29 But I tell you that even Solomon with his riches was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers. 30 God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today but tomorrow is thrown into the fire. So you can be even more sure that God will clothe you. Don’t have so little faith! 31 Don’t worry and say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 32 The people who don’t know God keep trying to get these things, and your Father in heaven knows you need them. 33 Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well. 34 So don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Worrying has never solved any problem to mankind rather it dissipate your energy and causes you to faint . A faint-hearted person lacks courage and behaves timid. When God spoke to Joshua, He reiterated to the Word \”BE COURAGEOUS\” to Joshua. \”Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9). NIV.

The scripture queried \”And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life?\”. A cubit I was ment to understood is the length from your elbow to the tip of your finger. I\’m sure no one can add any measure to his or her height by mere worrying about anything

Anxiety they say never accomplishes anything rather it causes us stress and a whole lots of waste of time
It diminishes or reduces our faith and trust in God because your mind will only feel disappointed for a delayed promises makes the heart sick.

But when you remove your eyes from your pains and struggles and focus on those promises of God and His righteousness for the things He had done before things begin to change for your good. Then you can ASK and Receive, You can SEEK and Find and also KNOCK at all close doors they begin to Open on its accord for you to Enter.

\”Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you\”. (Matthew 7:7-8)

Worrying has never in anyway helped anyone. Honestly I was once there even as a Holy ghost baptis and tongue speaking Christian despite all the words I know and had been preached that I heard. Yes!! We are still human with flesh and blood! Do you know at times you may hear the word your spirit do not assimilate it; until it begins to make sense to you and you begin to practice it it will just be like those seed the Sower scattered and some failed on a stony places and some on a good soil.

\”That same day Jesus went out of the house(D) and sat by the lake. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat(E) and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred,(F) sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.” (Matthew 13 :1-9) NIV.

Some of these things we hear until you start doing it, it will not work out for you so when I chose not to worry no matter the situation rather I will tell myself pray more and talkless of that thing that is troubling my mind. Commit it into God\’s hand, then tell Him what you want out of it and how you want it done for you, I begin to conquer some of those things that causes anxiety on me.

Is not a touch and go stuff, it\’s a deliberate action steadily doing it anytime fear and anxiety creeps inside of you. Don\’t Worry, hold unto God and Trust Him and move your self into a positive result oriented actions you shall win.

Remain Blessed. Shalom
