Be calm, quiet and serene

Luke 12:22-25 amp.

And [Jesus] said to His disciples, Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious and troubled [with cares] about your life, as to what you will [have to] eat; or about your body, as to what you will [have to] wear. For life is more than food, and the body [more] than clothes. Observe and consider the ravens; for they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn; and [yet] God feeds them. Of how much more worth are you than the birds! And which of you by being overly anxious and troubled with cares can add a cubit to his stature or a moment [unit] of time to his age [the length of his life]?

The normal way of this world is to worry about anything and everything and to try relaxing by a good bath or even learn to meditate. As born again believers in Jesus Christ our Lord, sometimes it is hard to deal with everyday life problems. The Word of God does not teach us at all how to avoid those times, but it teaches us how to go and grow through them with peace and even with joy. The verses above this time are filled with Jesus’s word and they are of a clarity we cannot just ignore if we read it. “..do not be anxious and troubled with cares about your life, as to what you will have to eat, about your body, as to what you will have to wear. For life us more than food, and the body more than clothes…And which of you by being overly anxious with troubles and care can add a cubit to his stature or a moment (unit) of time to his age (the length of his life)?
Let me tell you my beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, God created us with emotions, so feeling is not a bad thing. But the key is to make our will match God’s will. Believe His Word, and your faith will activate God’s blessings upon your life. There was times when I did not have a job, yet God provided. You cannot make anything happen faster by worrying. In other words, Jesus clearly tells His disciples that worrying and being anxious is completely useless. When we study the Word and believe it, our minds starts changing and we start thinking the way God wants us to think. Are you going to believe God’s Word is the Truth or the lies of this world?  God always provides for me for the simple reason that I believe He will. Remember, the Word tells us God will provide for all our needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus. It is time to let go of our fears and decide to live in peace, in total peace. Anxiety drains us of our energy and does not change a thing. God tells us over 300 times not to fret in the Word. This is truly important for Him. Our normal state of mind as believers should be calm, quiet and serene. It is your privilege to refuse to worry or have anxiety; use it! 💜
