‭‭That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

Matthew‬ ‭6:25-33‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Friend, as a child of God, understand that your mind is no longer for worry but for faith. So much so that Jesus, in the preceding text of scripture, refers to a worrier as one with so little faith. Again he says worry dominates the thoughts of unbelievers; this means they are full of worry and devoid of faith. But not so with you, you are the believing child of a faithful God. Praise God! You see, because of your faith in Christ Jesus, you have his eternal life, you are clothe of his righteousness, you lack nothing. These are the thoughts of a faith filled mind! They are true, gracious, fearless, confident and full of hope in Christ. Hallelujah!

Beloved, the human mind has a way of helping you shift responsibility, but only if you let it do so. It would suggest to you why there is nothing you can do about your present circumstances: it would suggest that troubles at your work place is your bosses’ fault, the condition of your health was passed on by your forebears and great grand parents, or that the current financial challenges you face are due your human background or physical appearance or earthly race. But that is not who you are; you see, through your faith in Christ Jesus, you have been gifted with a spiritual mind. His word says concerning you: for as many as are led by the spirit of God, these are the sons of God. You are not of this world. Therefore, you cannot think like the world. You are born of God and you have Christ’s mind in you! Now, by the faithful thoughts of your spiritual mind and the words you say, you can effect a change in all your affairs. ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:5-15 NKJV‬‬

Say this with me: I have a spiritual mind, free from worry and fear. Christ Jesus has granted me a bold, lovely and sound mind. I have a mind which obedient to God’s word: I am clothed with grace, I am clothe with righteousness and full of the eternal life of God. By the faithful words of my mouth and thoughts of my mind, I take charge of every situation I face: I have peace at my workplace, health in my body and success in my financial affairs. Praise God!
