Why Worry?


Yes worried?
Worried about what tomorrow holds? About what the future could toss your way?
Worried about derailing from the right tract in this race of life?
Worried of what our future home could be like? Perhaps because of what could be happening in our homes, happening in the homes of people we know etc.
Worried about starting up that career we dream of because of fear of failure? Worried about starting up on that plan for fear of stopping by the road side, fear of not been adequate? Etc.
He that has called us is faithful, yes, God who has called us will see us through one step at a time to the finish; He neither slumbers nor sleeps, he is our keeper and strength.
Worried? Worried? Worried? About anything?
The word of God says;
Worry about nothing but instead pray about everything; tell God your needs and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. (Philippians 4:6)

Pray about everything; this is the first step to conquer worry because prayer is the key to unlocking answers and directions. In verse 7 of same scripture, we find out that telling God about our worries you gives peace:
If you do this, you will experience Gods perfect peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will make your thoughts and your heart quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)
Why not just cast that anxiety to Him for He cares!
We also need to know that worry is a sin because the scripture says; anything not of faith is a sin… (Romans 14:23)
Whatever plans, dreams, work etc. we have, commit them to God in prayer and supplications and have faith that it will be achieved because each step of the way, God is always there to direct us.
In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. (proverbs3:6)
The scripture says, “All”. We only just have to acknowledge him first in all our ways (plans, decisions, works, etc. All! ).
When you pray, await his direction and every other thing will fall in place.
There are a whole lot of scriptural verses on worry and guess what? The bible kicks against worry in them all.
Start that crusade in your life today, to pray always and keep off worry because our flesh could fall to sin (worry) but staying connected with God always through Faith keeps worry in chains.
The psalmist discovered that our thoughts, our been human could fall to sin of worry and what he did, was to tell it to God, through whom He constantly drew strength; the psalmist understood the need of constant revival; thus, He wrote;
Whenever I am anxious and worried, you comfort me and make me glad. (Psalm 94:19)

pray about that plan or decision or issue or lack that bothers you
-trust God to give you directions. Totally trust God to provide.
-work with that direction, always having in mind that it won’t be challenge free but God will see us through.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)
-always strife to live right
-Neglect not the word of God and the gathering of Gods people.

“For He gives me new strength
He guides me in the right paths, as he promised. Even though I walk through the deepest darkness, I will not be afraid, for you are with me”.(Psalm 23:3-4)
