Avoid worrying over worldly things

O believer in God, worrying over worldly things is the last thing you ever need to be doing. The world worries over the things of the world and gets into panic and despair. Be not like them, for they are sheep in need of the Good Shepherd. But you are already in the care of the One True Shepherd Jesus Christ. So put your trust in Jesus, instead of banking on your worries.

Jesus said to His disciples in Matthew 6:25-34 the following words about dealing with worry:

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Meditate on the words of Jesus about worry. And you will by faith be able to overcome worry. Act on the words of Jesus, so that you receive true peace!

Cast your worries unto Jesus

Cast your worries and care,
And don’t get stuck in despair.
Give Jesus all of them at his feet,
Surrender your concerns complete.

Ask Jesus to give you his peace,
So that all negativity does cease.
He is merciful and he is kind,
In Him alone salvation you can find.

Don’t feat the past, future nor today,
But in Jesus’ heart put it all away.
In Christ alone put your trust,
And all your focus on him adjust.

Give them all to Jesus (Video)

Lyrics:

Are you tired of chasing pretty rainbows
Are you tired of spinning round and round
Wrap up all the shattered dreams of your life
And at the feet of Jesus lay them down

Give them all (give them all)
Give them all (give them all.)
Give them all to Jesus
Shattered dreams, wounded hearts, broken toys
Give them all (give them all)
Give them all (give them all.)
Give them all to Jesus
And he will turn your sorrows into joy

He never said you’d only see sunshine
He never said there’d be no rain
He only promised us a heart full of singing
That’s the very thing that once brought pain

Give them all (give them all)
Give them all (give them all…)
Give them all to Jesus
Shattered dreams, wounded hearts, broken toys Give them all (give them all)
Give them all (give them all…)
Give them all to Jesus
And he will turn your sorrows into joy

Verses for reflection:

casting all your anxieties on him, because he [Jesus Christ] cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away. (Revelation 21:4)
