Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.

Do You Worry or Have Anxiety? From personal experience I (JB) stressed and worried for the longest time until the Lord showed me that worrying and stressing was not trusting in the Father's Love. Hmm I thought, I am saying I believe in Jesus but I am not trusting in Him. I began to pray for the Lord to help me in my unbelief and to forgive me for not trusting Him. I asked him to renew my heart and to teach me to trust Him and to fill me with courage.
Mark 9:24 AMPC Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”
Worrying causes health effects and only does us harm. When we are stressed about a situation we have no control over we are not laying it down at the cross and giving our burden to Jesus the Christ (Matthew 11:28). The only control we have is self-control (Proverbs 25:28). The bible tells us to:
1 Peter 5:7 AMPC Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
