To worry is destructive, counter
productive and can lead to disaster. Worrying does not solve anything
That is why Jesus commanded us not to worry about our life. The
unbelievers, including unbelieving Christians, are destroyed through
The storms of life will come against
all of us, but if we do not act on the words of Jesus, we will be
like a man who built his house on the sand, the storm will come
against that house and destroy it because it has no firm foundation.
We can make our best plans, and do all we know to prevent disaster,
hardship and loss, but only Jesus can save, deliver and heal us.
We have to put our trust in Jesus, and
therefor we must OBEY Him, to experience His protection, deliverance
and provision. The moment that you start worrying, satan has disarmed
you and you are at his mercy to steal from you, rob you and destroy
When people get a pain, they often run
straight to the doctor, which will cost them money. The doctor might
send them for tests and scans, which cost even more money. They
trust the doctor for a diagnoses, which is often wrong, which leads
to further actions, treatments, surgeries. Do not trust them to go
for the cheapest remedy. As long as you can pay, or generate funds to
pay, they will do anything to treat you, often unnecessary. If you
die in the process, they will not lose, they will get their money
from your estate and your loved ones who are left behind, will be
impoverished. Certainly, there are good doctors, but most people are
selfish and only care for themselves. In any business a customer who
can pay is a potential to make money. Doctors and hospitals have
bills to pay. They will gladly take your money. Your sickness will be
paying for it. If you put your trust in man, you will be destroyed.
It is written:” This is what the LORD says:
“Cursed is the man who trusts in
who makes the flesh his strength
and turns his heart from the LORD.
will be like a shrub in the desert;
he will not see when prosperity comes.
He will dwell in the parched places of
the desert,
in a salt land where no one lives.”
Jeremiah 17:5,6.
Jesus said: “For this reason I say
to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you
will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what
you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than
clothing? 26“Look
at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather
into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are
you not worth much more than they? 27“And
who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his
life? 28“And
why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the
field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29yet
I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself
like one of these. 30“But
if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today
and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much
more clothe you? You of little faith! 31“Do
not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we
drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32“For
the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father
knows that you need all these things. 33“But
seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things
will be added to you.      34“So
do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each
day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:25-34.
What should the believer do? When the
storm comes, DO NOT WORRY. Trust in Jesus. Run to Jesus. Ask His
guidance, seek His will, seek His help. Pray, wait on Him. Refuse to
worry. Praise Jesus, while you wait on Him. Keep your focus on Jesus.
Jesus is greater than everything. He can and will answer our prayer.
May Jesus bless you.
