Jesus Words On Worry
Jesus talked about worry and anxiety more than a few times, and he reminds us of how much God loves us and how He can give us rest.
Take No Thought, 1
Luke 12:22-28 (25)
And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body [is more] than raiment. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more [will he clothe] you, O ye of little faith?
We reviewed this passage in the Apostle Matthew's words (6:25) and now from Luke as he records the words of Jesus in the same thought. The mission of this passage is to bring comfort in a time of worry. We highlight verse 25 as it addresses the veridical of our limitations; none of us can change a physical thing about ourselves by thought, much less growing 18 inches. Why do we concern ourselves with the psychological disadvantages of things we are incapable of? Consider the lilies, the grass, the trees, the mountains, and seas - does not God take care of them? Where is your Faith?
Jehovah Jireh, The LORD Will Provide - Genesis 22:14; we thank You for the Spirit of our souls. We come in a spirit of oneness to lift Your Name in praise for the glory revealed in us. We decree and declare the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who formally denounce the concerns of this world, so that; we who believe experience the veridical of Your Kingdom. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
