Cease Striving – Find Rest

Cease Striving – Find Rest

Luke 12:22-23Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.”

Consumed with Worry

It’s easy to obsess over basic needs and become consumed with worry. But Jesus reminds us that fretting cannot add a single hour to our lives. Our worth is not defined by food, clothes, or success.

God knows what we need. When anxiety arises, we can release striving and rest in His care. He provides so we can invest in eternal pursuits. Don’t major on the minors.

Anxious Efforts are Futile

No amount of worrying will ultimately satisfy. It only breeds stress, fatigue, and discontentment. We are designed to rely on God, not our anxious efforts. But so often we forfeit peace.

Trade fruitless worrying for fruitful pursuits. Redirect energy away from obsessing over circumstance to focusing on Christ. He is our calm within the storms of life.

Lord, You Are Enough

Jesus, when worries about basic needs consume me, realign my focus onto You, the Bread of Life. Remind me that You hold my every moment. Anxiety is useless. Nourish my soul with Your love and fill me with supernatural peace. You are enough.
