Don’t Be Anxious
Please do not be anxious or disappointed when you cannot get what we want.
We have one true God who will provide for our needs, although it may not be exactly what we want. So, Brothers and Sisters and Mothers, do not be so quick to be tempted to be disappointed. Desperation is one of the weapons that can turn us off. Instead, we must continue to trust and love our great provider. There is no temptation bigger than our faith if we maintain our focus. God is faithful and will never let us be tempted beyond our ability.
Here is something we can learn from the Book of Matthew: “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious 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? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not of more value than they? And which of you, by being anxious, can add a single hour to his life span? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
“Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its trouble. Matthew 6:25-34
