We live in a World of Anxiety that leads some people to try drugs and alcohol to ease the pain of Life.
That can be damaging to one’s well-being. It can lead to depression, robbing one of strength and the initiative to act.
Says the inspired
proverb: “Anxious care in the Heart of a man is what will cause it to bow down ” -(
There can be serious physical manifestations from worry.
“Doctors know how anxiety can affect the body’s functions. It can raise (or lower) blood pressure;
it can elevate the white blood cell count; it can suddenly affect the blood sugar by the action of adrenalin on the liver.
It can even change your electrocardiogram. Dr. Charles Mayo said:
‘Worry affects the circulation, the heart, the glands, the whole nervous system.’”
—By Drs. P. Steincrohn and D. LaFia, 1970, p. 14.
Far more serious is the spiritual harm to which undue anxiety may lead. Jesus Christ indicated that appreciation for “the word of God” can be completely choked out by worry over the problems that are often part of life in the present system of things. Just as thorns can stop seedlings from reaching maturity and bearing fruit, so such anxiety can prevent spiritual development and the bearing of fruitage to God’s praise. (Mt 13:22; Mr 4:18, 19; Lu 8:7, 11, 14) Because of having permitted these worries to dominate their lives, to the exclusion of spiritual interests, many will find themselves in a disapproved state before the Son of God upon his return in glory, to their everlasting loss.—Lu 21:34-36.

5- Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding
In preaching "trust in God" the moralist anticipates the teaching that man is justified by faith. To confide in God's will, the secret of all true greatness, is to rise out of all our anxieties and plans and fears when we think of ourselves as the arbiters of our own fortunes, and so "lean to our own understanding." Barnes' Notes on the Bible
6-In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,.... Or "know him" (l); the Lord: set him before thee; have him always in view; consider him as ever present with thee, observing every step thou takest; and take not one step without his leave, and without his advice; ask wisdom of him who gives liberally; consult his word, and make the Scriptures thy counsellors, or the men of thy counsel, as in Psalm 119:24; take him as your guide; observe the footsteps of his providence; follow the Lamb wheresoever he goes; walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit; when things go cross and adverse, and not to your mind, submit to his sovereignty; and be still and know that he is God, that does all things right, for his own glory and his people's good, Psalm 46:10; and when things succeed, give him the glory of all; own his hand in it, and the bounty of it; acknowledge that all you have, in providence and grace, come from him;
and he shall direct thy paths; man cannot direct his own; no, not a man: this is a blessing from the Lord; who steps of his people, keeps the feet of his saints, and directs them aright in things temporal and spiritual, Jeremiah 10:23.
