Let’s read Matthew 6:25-31
25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
These verses are saying to all of us, DO NOT WORRY, about anything! The more we worry about things in life, the more likely we will get sick from stress, anxiety attacks, panic attacks, heart attacks from anger and frustrations, and depression!. Remember that God the Father knows what we all need in this life. When we worry or try to do everything ourselves, our Father can’t have any room to bless us!
That’s why Father wants us all to rest in Him. When we rest in Him and cast all our care upon Him, we get peace, joy and calmness in our hearts. Stress can cause all kind of sickness and depression. When we Rest in Him, we give all our problems and stress in our life to Christ and He will give us Rest! Look up to the Cross and remember what He have done for us. He have given us all the Blessings that Jesus deserves! So let’s give Jesus all the Praise!
Don't take wealth as your number one source of happiness. Our true richness is in our heart when we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. That free gift is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
