“Therefore, I tell you, 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 clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? (Matthew :25-27 NIV)
Birds don't appear worried. They generally aren't plucking their feathers out of nervousness. God knows birds' needs and provides for these creatures. He created us above the birds, so surely He will also take care of our basic needs.
Our immediate reaction may be fear, but the Lord tells us to do the opposite. We are reminded that God will be with us when we walk through the fire, and so we wont get burned. (Isaiah 43:1) What is your sanctuary from fear?
When we are overwhelmed and feel like a failure, the Lord shows us how to endure. We can avoid feeling insecure, when we tell the Lord our concerns and trust in His coping skills.
