BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING?
- faith SteemChurch
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;"
IS IT POSSIBLE NOT TO BE ANXIOUS IN THE FACE OF UNCERTAINTIES?
GOD Created this world through acting in his wisdom
anxiety or worry over uncertainty is an exercise in futility, God doesn't left us idle, there are always something to do in every situation, worry doesn't accomplish anything and therefore should not be encouraged.
Remember the parable of the talents, it could be said that wisdom is a talent given to each one of us, instead of worrying, we should always work things out with our measure of talent called wisdom.
Matthew 6:27 (ESV)
And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
In the face of uncertainties, it is possible to get anxious but God admonishes us to always keep calm and pray to Him.
The word used here -does not mean that we are to exercise no care about worldly matters - no care to preserve our property, or to provide for our families (compare 1 Timothy 5:8); but that there is to be such confidence in God as to free the mind from anxiety, and such a sense of dependence on Him as to keep it calm.
Our taking cognizane of His abilities makes us calm even in the worse uncertain situations!
Anxiety only demonstrates the falat of trust towards God, therefore for nothing we must be anxious, all petition we must present it to the father.
We should learn to not be anxious for anything as anxiety may lead to desperation and fear.
