Disarming Anxiety

Your goal is not to know every detail of the future. Your goal is to hold the hand of the One who does; and never, ever let go! Jesus tells us rather bluntly,

Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on” (Matthew 6:25)

He then gives us two commands, look and consider.

 “Look at the birds of the air(Matthew 6:26). 

When we do, they appear happy. They don’t appear sleep deprived or lonely. They whistle and soar! He then says,

Consider the lilies” (Matthew 6:28)

And he adds,

Even Solomon,” the richest king in history, “was not arrayed like one of these” (Matthew 6:29).

How do we disarm anxiety?

Stockpile our minds with God thoughts. If birds and flowers fall under the category of God’s care, won’t he care for us as well?
