Jesus has told us that in this world we would have trouble, but He also told us not to become anxious about our trouble because He has overcome the world. Every Christian knows that Jesus has said that but yet, they worry – about everything.
Worry does not solve our problems; nor does the lack of worry take away our problems, so how can we obey Jesus and at the same time solve our problems? God is the antidote for anxiety. Instead of focusing on the problem, we should focus on the one who can solve all problems for nothing is impossible with Him. Worrying robs us of our strength and our peace. God has promised to keep us in perfect peace if we focus on Him but we must be close enough to God to hear Him speak to us. God does speak to us in whispers, and if we are not still, we could miss hearing God’s voice.
Trusting God is the answer because some problems that we experience will be beyond our control and to some, that alone is a problem. We want to be in control of everything but that will not always be the case. God loves us and He wants us to come to Him with everything that concerns us. God has always been there for you; He has always taken care of you and He cannot stop being who He is. God has a different perspective on our problems than we do, so it is to our advantage to take our burdens to the Lord and leave them there. It all comes down to trusting God with not only our lives but the lives of everyone we love in this world.
Be anxious for nothing should be written down every where you go as a reminder that your problems are now God’s problems and in prayer, supplication and thanksgiving you are to take your problems to God and walk away with such peace because the one who created all, has you in the palm of His hand.
