JESUS TELLS US NOT TO WORRY

(From an article written by Josh Wilde)

Worry is one of the areas of the Christian walk that many people struggle continuously with. We need to read scriptures and be reminded that God has asked us not to worry but to trust Him completely. It is this reassurance and these Bible verses about worry that help during stressful times or times filled with anxiety. I would ask you to say a prayer before reading these, that God uses them to speak to you today.

What did Jesus Say About Worry?

Matthew 6:25-27 “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, and 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 span of life?

Matthew 6:34“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.  Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me,

for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. “

Luke 12:25And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?

John 14:27Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

A song to help you not to worry.   

CONSIDER THE LILIES    

Written by Joel Hemphill   Sung by Jim Patterson.

Consider the lilies, they don’t toil nor spin

And there’s not a king with more splendour than them.

Consider the sparrows, they don’t plant nor sow,

But they’re fed by the Master who watches them grow.

Chorus

We have a Heavenly Father above

With eyes so full of mercy And a heart full of love.

He really cares when Your head is bowed low.

Consider the lilies and then you will know.

May I introduce you to this friend of mine,

Who hangs out the stars and tells the sun when to shine.

He kisses the flowers each morning with dew,

But He’s not too busy to care about you.

Chorus 

We have a Heavenly Father above

With eyes so full of mercy And a heart full of love.

He really cares when Your head is bowed low.

Consider the lilies and then you will know.

Purity and humility are beautiful.   

1 Peter  Chapter 5  verses 6-10

6Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

7Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

9Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

10But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus,

after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.
