The cure of anxiety (Part 5)

The cure of anxiety part 5

• Know that God knows what you need and He will provide 

 

31)Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 

32)For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 

 

The third prescription to cure anxiety is to KNOW! Know that your heavenly Father knows what you need. He knows exactly what you need. 

 

Many times in Scripture the word “believe” is used as a synonym for the word “knowing”. We see this in Romans 6. 

 

What must I know? 

 

I must know that God is omniscient. I must keep this truth, as it were, in my heart. I must remind myself of it constantly. I must know that God sees everything. God knows everything of everyone. And God is not ignorant of my every need. God knows me intimately. He knows my thoughts from afar. He knows what I am going to say and think before I do (Psalm 139). He knows me through and through. He knows me better than I know myself. He knows all my medical conditions, he knows what medicines and pills I am taking. He knows my future. He has plans for me as a child of God. He has prepared beforehand the good works that I should walk in (Ep 2:10). He knows my needs, my debts, my sins, my struggles, my fears, my talents, my liabilities, my weaknesses, my gifts, my everything, my family. He knows everything. And if he knows, and if he is my Father and He is loving and good, why are you anxious? This knowledge, this knowledge of who God is changes everything. He knows me, he knows my needs, and as a Father, he will provide for me, because he not only knows me, he cares for me, he loves me, I am his child in Christ. 

 

Stock up your mind with knowledge about God, his love, his omniscience, and know and believe God will care. Learn more about God, study God’s attributes. Meditate on God! 

 

Know, know the character of God!
