“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” (Philippians 4:6, NLT).
How often do we worry about situations that at the end turn out differently and we wish we’d never bothered ourselves about them? Worry is a state of volatility. It is not an expression of faith. As you know, faith is what gets the job done. When you worry you’re telling the hosts of heaven that they are incapable of helping you.
What the devil does is to get us to worry when challenges come our way. He knows that worry suffocates the faith in us to work out a solution. You cannot be full of anxiety and still have the capacity to think well. In such a mental and spirit condition it is difficult to hear clearly from God what wise step to take.
Jesus made it clear that people who should worry are those who don’t know God. God wants us to come to a place of rest. It’s a position in Christ that says, “Nothing goes wrong in my life. All things work together for my good. Failure is not an option. I’m too blessed to be cursed.” Rest is a state of stillness. A state of peace within no matter the chaos outside.
You step out of grace when you worry. And grace is the ability of God to do for you what you can’t do for yourself. I wouldn’t want to step out of grace you know. Because grace is what we need to come out of the troubles of life. Instead of worrying pray, make your petitions to God and thank Him for everything. Nothing is worth being anxious for. Nothing at all. Be worry-free in Jesus name. #BeInspired.
