Eyes On The Sparrow: What Is The Cure For Anxiety, According To Christ Jesus?



"His eye is on the sparrow, and I know he watches me." -lyrics from the gospel hymn "His Eye Is On The Sparrow."


The cure for anxiety, according to Christ Jesus, is this:


Do not worry about tomorrow. Or today. That may be easier said than done.


"Take no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matthew 6:34; KJV)


(Matthew 10:29-31)


29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

 

30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

 

31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.


Which one is better in the eyes of God: lions, tigers, bears, beasts of burden, birds, baboons or the billions of people living right now?


Matthew 6:26:


"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?"


Those are the words of Christ Jesus, as the cure for anxiety: faith in our Father's ability to provide our daily bread.


Do not worry about your future, what you will eat, drink, wear.


Why?


Because our heavenly Father knows that we need all of these things and will provide our needs. He will give us our daily bread in the form of nourishment for our minds, spirits and bodies.


Do not fret about what the next day may bring. Instead, live rejoicing every day. And we can only do that one day at a time. We cannot rejoice on a day that has not arrived yet, if that makes sense.


"I sing because I'm happy. I sing because I'm free. His eye is on the sparrow, and I know he watches me."


"Keep your eye on the sparrow, when the going gets narrow," says the theme song, performed by Sammy Davis, Jr., from the 1970's TV show Baretta,
