Is there something that you are worrying about today? To worry means to allow something to revolve in your mind over and over again. God doesn’t want us to live worried or anxious about anything. He knows that worry steals our peace and joy. It affects every area of our life. Matthew 6:27(NIV) says, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”
Have you heard the saying, “Don’t worry yourself sick?” That’s because worrying affects our physical body. It affects our sleep. We won’t ever gain anything by worrying; in fact, we’ll lose precious moments that we can never get back again. The good news is that God has promised that we can have victory over worry. It starts by making the choice to trust in Him. When you cast your cares on Him, He will give you His peace.
I love that Jesus gives us a worry cure a few verses later in this passage. Matthew 6:33-34 (THE MESSAGE) says, “Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. (34) "Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”
Decide today to put an end to worry in your life. Choose to feed your faith and fill your mind with God's promises. As you focus on God’s Word, you’ll drive out worry and fill your heart with faith and expectancy; and you’ll be empowered to move forward into the life of blessing He has in store for you!
See ya Sunday,
