Why live with worry all your life?Bible says “Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? or what shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things” (Matthew 6:31-32).
Its sad how many today burden themselves with anxiety and stress. Worrying about their relationship, work, finances, business among others.
And yet still, their worry hasn’t given them what their heart desires.
A life full of worry isn’t the life God wishes or wants for us. Just as we also don’t want to continue our journey of life suffering and accepting what soever life offers. No! We are the Kings kid and such a life isn’t what God wants for us, His children. Pastor Chris will say, worry sets before you a magnetic force that attracts things that are consistent with it. And its true.
Worry comes with fears negative possibilities. It only helps you see the negative aspects of life and makes you experience it as well. Its good to see the pros and cons of situations but its best when its seen with the wisdom and knowledge of God. You are a kings kid. And just as He is in heaven, so are you on earth. You declare and you make things happen. So why waste your time worrying instead of speaking? If you keep worrying, you experience the effects of worry, which is negative. And when you speak, your spoken words manifest in your life.
So if u keep worrying about losing your partner for example, soon enough you will lose him or her. But when you declare with the word and act as a partner should act, divorce or separation would be far from you.
The only cure for worry is to stay and focus your mind on God’s
Paul (oh i admire this guy) was a man of revelation. He gave the antidote for worry in Philippians 4:6 when he said, “Be careful for nothing; but in
everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God”. So, rather than
worry and work yourself up, ask and receive whatever you so desire. And live in the consciousness of God’s victory, grace and excellence in all
aspects of life! Knowing that, you can only receive when you ask. And its only when you seek that you will find.
God has given us everything that pertains to good life and godliness. So anything short of that; a life of joy and fulfillment in Christ isn’t God’s best for you.
His best is not yet seen in your life because you haven’t allowed Him.
Hebrews 4:3 says, For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he
said, “As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my
rest”: although the works were finished from the foundation of
the world. Wow. This is just great to know. Very touching and thoughtful of God. God finished all His works from the foundation of the world before He
made man, and now He’s resting.
In 6 days, He finished all that needed to be done which included creating us.
Everything we have is as a result of how blessed we are. Not because we are lucky. God has given us a life free of struggles. He made sure the hard work was taken care of for us to enjoy. Therefore, all we have to do is to enter into the rest of God for our hard works to cease. And how do we live in the rest of God? Its by living in faith in Gods word. Speaking it and acting it. Embracing it as it is. In fact, living in the rest of God is one of the best blessings God gave us as our father.
After the hard work, He made a public invitation for us to live a stress free life. He said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of
me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest
unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light”
In as much as this sounds too good to be true, its actually true. Not in a way but very true. Just surrender yourself to Him and seek more of Him and less of yourself.
Remember, you are called to live a good life. Not one full of worry, sadness and fear. But one full of success.
Jesus is risen for our rising.
