Jesus said “worldly anxiety” is enough to choke His Word from growing in us (Mark 4:19).
It is rather normal to worry about our needs because we are not self-sufficient. We depend on daily necessities to survive, such as food, clothing and shelter. These in turn depend on external circumstances, such as good weather for farmers’ harvest; good health and a job for parents who work to provide for their families; and an ongoing income for us to pay the bills. Anything that may go wrong, can easily make us worry!
The truth is God knows all our needs, and He is a good Father who provides!
Jesus' Sermon on the Mount reinforced this truth. He said, “Do not worry about your life, what you will eat [or drink], or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?” (Matthew 6:25-26)
God doesn’t want us to worry, and we can depend on Him as we walk with Him. This is the remedy against all the cares and worries of this world.
The key is, as Jesus promised, to “seek first for the kingdom [of God] and His righteousness, and all these things [that you need] will be given you”. (Matthew 6:33)
Thus uproot these cares and worries by trusting in God, and let God lead our way of life.
