Do Not Worry

“Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God” (Philippians 4:6 NKJV).
Apostle Paul forbid the Christians from worrying.  This does not mean to dismiss legitimate concerns.  The solution is to undue anxiety is prayer in every things.  The way to be free of anxiety is to be prayerful in all things.  God is eager to hear our requests and they are to be accompanied with thanksgiving.
Then we can look at another Scripture written where Jesus is speaking, “Therefore I say unto you do not take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.  Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?”(Matt 6:25 KJV).  Here Jesus deals with those who are worrying. He tells them to do not be anxious.  We should not be so disturbed about material needs that we distrust God and are distracted from faithfully doing the will of the Lord.  Anxious care is the direct opposite of faith.  Even the poor are not to worry about what they should eat, drink or wear. When we worry we deprive ourselves from the spiritual blessings of God. We are to cast all our cares on Him for He cares for us.
As we approach Thanksgiving we should not worry about what we are going to eat just give God all of the praises because we are able to celebrate this time of giving thanks. Christians should be giving thanks every single day for the blessings of the Lord. Annie Dennis Eskridge, author of Sin Abides. or email me
