Topic: MIND THERAPY …part 7
Text : Matthew 6:25-33
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. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26: Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27: Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28: And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30: Wherefore, if God 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?
The focus here is HOW TO TAKE CARE OF WORRY AND ANXIETY. Jesus was explicit in our passage, he knows the things that bother us. This sermon was delivered over 2000 years ago and yet still relevant to our lives, the struggle of every man revolves around what Jesus discussed here.
The human mind wanders round the issues of life and how to meet needs and solve problems, but Jesus in our passage made it known that we can’t take care of ourselves enough, he brought us to the consciousness of the fact that we have a father, God, who cares for us. Often times we feel we are alone, Jesus was able to prove to us that we are not alone, he made reference to plants and animals who neither sow nor reap: yet your heavenly father feeds them, how much you that are far better?
We get worried when we lose senses of the fact that the almighty God cares for us, if he is almighty and he cares for me how will I lack anything good?
A song writer calls God Merciful and Mighty, if he is mighty that means he can do anything, and if he is merciful he wouldn’t permit me to suffer, how will God want me to be put to shame? How will he take me through pains? Why will he permit me to suffer loses? Why will he make my enemies rejoice over me? This consciousness extincts worries and anxieties, that’s therapy.
The consciousness of the fact that he can do anything and that he loves me brings peace and comfort in my mind.
Jesus closed this sermon by releasing a dose that will always cure worries and anxieties: Matthew 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Your assignment is to seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness and he will take care of all your worries (MIND THERAPY).
This is like telling your children to go to school and face their studies and you will supply all that they need. God won’t fail, you just seek his kingdom. God bless you.
* Help me to seek your kingdom and his righteousness always.
