“Therefore I say to you, do not worry 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?”
Is your heart full of worries about your health, finance, family issues or future? Some people still worry even when all is well, Many people in our time are used to a life of worry
But Jesus does not want you to worry about what you will eat or drink, or about your body and what you will put on. He said we should not worry about our daily provisions because God, who is our heavenly Father, knows that we need all these things and He wants to add these things to our lives. (Matthew 6:32–33)
God is the same God who took care of the children of Israel in the wilderness, feeding them with manna every day for 40 years! (Exodus 16) Under His care they lack NOTHING. When the people wanted meat for dinner, He simply rained quails on them. (Numbers 11:31–32) The children of Israel only had to pick them up. If they had gone to look for meat themselves, they probably would not have find any in the wilderness.
The problem with us today is that we think that we must do something to help ourselves. Some of us may even think that it is easy for Jesus to say, “Don’t worry. Take no thought for your life,” because He does not understand the problems we face in life.
But the truth is that Jesus understands the problems we face in life. In fact, He faced what I would call the “final problem”—death. Death is the “final problem” because it puts an end to all our other problems. Jesus faced death at the cross, conquered it and rose from the dead. And because Jesus conquered the problem of problems, we can trust Him when He tells us not to worry!
