The Cure for Anxiety

This baby does not worry about who will feed her, clothe her, carry her on their back, put her to sleep, love her, comfort her, etc.
Just as the mother in this picture meets the babies ever need, God meets our every need. 
The mother feeds the baby when it is time.   
God feeds us His Holy word if we will just partake by reading His Word.
Sometimes we choke on the food of His Word because we are not willing to digest it. 
Sometimes it opens our heart so wide it hurts. 
Sometimes we reject what it says. 
Sometimes we take what it says and let it nurture us so we grow.
The mother puts clothes on the baby just as God provides clothing for us when we are baptized into Christ.  
God provides for our every need. 
We may not realize that He does because it may not be what we think we need at the time. 
God may not give us everything we think we need. 
He may say “No” or He may say “not now”, or He may say “just wait”, or He may say nothing at all.

Matthew 6:33-34

New American Standard Bible (NASB)
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.
Mark 10:29-52
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
29 Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, 30 but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life.31 But many who are first will be last, and the last, first.”
Luke 12:22-31
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
22 And He said to His disciples, “For this reason I say to you, do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24 Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds! 25 And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span? 26 If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters? 27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 28 But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith! 29 And do not seek what you will eat and what you will drink, and do not keep worrying. 30 For all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek; but your Father knows that you need these things. 31 But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you.

  1. When my late husband was diagnosed with brain cancer, he was having a conversation with an aunt. He shared that the hardest thing for him at that moment was not being able to provide for his family. She gently reminded him that it was never him that provided, but God providing through him. Thanks for the reminder 🙂

  2. I really struggle with worry and have a hard time not doing it! Every now and then I need that reminder that we are not the providers. Thanks you 🙂 And thanks for linking at Say It Saturday.
