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!

God collects your tears

chr5

You number my wanderings: put you my tears into your bottle: are they not in your book? (Psalm 56:8)

The Lord God understands your sufferings. Due to the fallen nature of the world many a times people suffer to due to sins or are victims of other sinners. However in all this remember you who trust in Christ that you are not forgotten. You are not forgotten by God.

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. (1 Peter 5:7)

Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved. (Psalm 55:22)

Whatever be the reason for your tears cast your burden unto the Lord. He cares for you. May he deliver you from sorrow in this life and especially more so in the life that is to come. Commend your spirit to Jesus Christ at all times.
