I have been worrying about a certain situation this week. It actually started last week. It wasn’t too
serious but enough to warrant a response from me. But in the midst of the worrying a few thoughts came
to me. Was my worrying warranted? What does YAH think when I worry?
Surely it’s okay to worry here and there?
Reading the word brought some clarity and that is what I want to share.
No matter how bad things are, no matter what comes our way, His desire for us is to always bring
our problems to Him.
He doesn’t want us wasting even a second worrying.
The call to not worry is a command from the Lord.
Let’s look at a few scriptures in light of this,
“Do not fret or have anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything,
by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants
known to God.”
Philippians 4:6 (emphasis mine)
“Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives
do I give to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated
and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]
John 14:27 (emphasis mine)
There is no suggestion or invitation here. it’s definite, resolute.
And that is so for a reason.
We worry about things but the Lord wants to take it all.
He doesn’t want us to waste time worrying because He cares for us and loves us. He wants to help us.
He is stronger than anything we will ever face and He knows that.
So as I end I want to make us see that worrying does not accomplish the purposes of the Lord in any way.
Worrying opens the door to anxiety, stress, fear and a lot of other harmful things.
When worry comes we need to take it to Him instantly. Don’t hold on to it.
Whatever you are worrying about today know that it’s not your burden to carry.
It’s the Lord’s burden, He wants it to take it from you. Will you let Him?
“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life,
for I am Your oasis.
Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle,
humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me.
For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.”
Matthew 11:28-30 (TPT)
Bless you friends
So true, Rolain. God can take our burdens. We just need to let him.
Thanks Ali. That’s right. We need to learn to give Him our worries and not hold on to them. That’s my challenge in this season.
I don’t go first to Him but instead can go to worry and try to figure out a solution! A timely message. Thank you.
You welcome Lynn. That was me too….
May He help us quickly turn to Him before we let worry consume our thoughts and life…
