Why are you so anxious? Imagine physically walking into a Bible verse (13)

Anxiety is at pandemic levels in the most affluent countries in the world, Why?

Intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Fast heart rate, rapid breathing, sweating and feeling tired may occur and more.

It’s like we are in a war zone in our heads.

Jesus addresses this whole realm by sharing the following parable.

Why are ye anxious concerning raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God doth so clothe the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?


Jesus talks about your belief system dictating to you most of life’s outcomes. He then asked us to make room for an extraordinary truth.

The only way I can describe this truth is by sharing an experience I had early this morning while walking through a local forrest.

It’s as though I literally walked through these Bible verses, the trees were filled with birds singing and the field was covered in lilies.

Birds Singing & Lilies Purity

You can’t imagine the thrill of dead silence and then a choir of birds welcome the morning sun. For over an hour, the forrest came alive. Then you walk through fields of Lilies and instantly the above Bible verse comes to mind.

God looks after the birds and they celebrate every day. Just one of those worthless lilies which are viewed as natures weeds these days, is more splendid than one of the greatest architectural masterpieces, Solomon’s kingdom.

Jesus is challenging us to look up and see what’s available to us by believing in the goodness of God.

Why spend your whole life worrying, it won’t get you what you are looking for.

God knows where your life can experience it’s greatest harmony so spend time in His domain and what you’re looking for will appear.

I hope you have an amazing day!
