Anxiety has 2 definite meanings. One is a fear of loss and the other is a keen desire to succeed. We become anxious and this anxiety becomes a focus point.
Do Not Be Anxious
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
I’ll translate…… Do not have fear of loss or a keen desire for what you will eat or drink! Later on another scripture says the same about your clothes. I think the heart of the message are locked up in the las part of the verse “Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?”
If you have a fear or a desire about what you will loose or gain of this world it will completely suck you dry. The worries of this world is like that. Satan will keep you occupied through anxiety, so much so, that you will have nothing left to enjoy your life.
Life is much more than eating and drinking. Holiness is to be separated unto God. Not separated unto this world! Thinking about what God is thinking about. What is important to him?
