Let God Help When You Are Anxious

              “Be not therefore anxious for the morrow:  for the morrow will be anxious for itself.  Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof,” (Matthew 6:34 ASV). 


            “And my God shall supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus,” (Philippians 4:19 ASV).


            “In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God,” (Philippians 4:6).


            God has promised His presence and His help when the trials of life seem to be too much.  The psalmist wrote, “Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee:  He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved,” (Psalm 55:22).  While He walked among men, Jesus stated that the Father would not allow one of His children to be plucked out of His hand, (John 10:28, 29).  In life or eternity, God takes care of His people, (Psalm 23: Matthew 6:26-34).


            Throughout his struggles in serving Paul He leaned on God and, under whatever circumstance, was able to overcome.  He wrote, “Not that I speak in respect of want:  for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content,” (Philippians 4:11).  Paul’s heart was set on eternity with God in heaven.  He lived one day at a time and looked forward to the day when he could complete his journey here on earth, (Philippians 1:20-29; 3:13, 14).  


            Peter wrote, “Casting all your care upon Him:  for he careth for you,” (I Peter 5:7).  There is nothing of life and living that is too hard for us if the Lord is on our side.  Nothing can prevent us from receiving the reward.  The author of the book of Romans asked, “What shall we then say to these things?  If God be for us, who can be against us,” (Romans 8:31)? 


            The trials that come upon us in this life will either make or break us.  Jesus withstood the trials and was tempted “in all points like as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:13).  When we feel anxious we must remember that God is in control and with Him, nothing is impossible.  Paul wrote “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me,” (Philippians 4:13).


            Let us lean upon the Lord and allow Him to aid us.  He is our support in time of need and will give grace to see us through life and eternity!
