Don’t Be Anxious

Suffered Severe Pain for 15 Years!

Don't Be Anxious

In the biblical book of Matthew 6:25-34, Jesus says: “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?”

Jesus is saying that life is more important than anything in this world. And when He says “life”, He is referring to the soul, because it is eternal: either it will live forever where the Lord Jesus Christ is, in the new Jerusalem, or else it will live forever in the lake of fire and brimstone, where there is crying and gnashing of teeth. And to live with Him, it is necessary to surrender this soul unconditionally in the arms of the Lord Jesus. When a person gives their soul to Him, takes on the faith, have this marriage with Him, then He becomes the King within them.

It is as Jesus said: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33). That is, it is necessary to fit within the Word of God for the King to reign. And to qualify it is necessary to obey.
So give everything to the Lord Jesus and He will solve all your problems. Start by sowing trust in God and He will then attend to your needs.
