Matthew 6: 25-33 NLT
25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? 31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God[e] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
Worry is allowing your mind to mind to dwell on troubles or the possibility of difficult times. It is a form of negative meditation that doesn’t yield beneficial results for your life.
The only way to combat worry is by refocusing and fixing your mind on Jesus and speaking aloud with your mouth the promises He has provided unto you. When you speak aloud with your mouth, negative thoughts are disrupted. In Philippians 4:19, God promises to supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Everything you need has been placed in Christ and Christ dwells in you!
What are you in need of: comfort, companionship, peace, health, direction, loyalty, endurance, strength, love, or boldness. Whatever you may stand in need of today, believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus has met all of your needs.
Prayer for the Journey
Father, thank you for meeting all my needs in Christ Jesus. I will keep my mind focused on this truth to combat worry and anxiety. Fear is not of you. When I understand the perfect and complete love you have for me, fear, worry, and anxiety depart. Because I know that you love me, I understand your love will never leave me without what I need.
In Jesus Name, Amen!
