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 worrying.
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 you.
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 mankind,
who makes the flesh his strength
and turns his heart from the LORD.
6He 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.
