One of the struggles that I sometimes find myself facing is Worry. I encountered this recently, so I had to be reminded of the authority that God has given me against such attacks. I had to go back to my Word and study. And I want to share it with you...
Webster defines Worry as "mental distress or agitation resulting from concern usually for something impending or anticipated. " in other words, worry is about things that have not happened. Worry is not an emotion; it is a mental exercise.
The Bible states in Matthew 6:34
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is it's own trouble.
Worry fills the mind with useless clutter that leaves no room for God. It clouds perspective, causing people to focus on self instead of God. Jesus said that God feeds the birds and clothes the flowers, so He will take care of His children.
Trusting God involves trusting Him to care for us. Jesus tells us to "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness" Matthew 6:33
As believers we must still work to meet our needs; we don't sit back and expect God to do it all. We work but we don't worry. We know that God will care for us.
Then He said to His disciples "Therefore I say unto you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. "
Jesus has the perfect solution for worry. Instead of worrying, He invites us to put on our faith and trust in God's provision and care. This can free us from the anxiety that is caused by worry.
This total trust doesn't mean that we should not have goals, plans, investments, and so forth. It does mean however, that for everything we should trust in God, putting Him first in our lives, AND DON'T STOP PRAYING
