It's OK. God Has This!

 

Good Morning My Loves,

We all are prone to do it. It steals our peace. It kills our joy. It accomplishes absolutely NOTHING! Jesus told us NOT to do it. What is it? It’s WORRY! When our minds begin to think the worst, we worry. When we let go of the truth and step out of faith, we worry. Worry is a sin. It removes God from the equation, and says “I don’t trust You to help me in this situation, I’ve got to do this on my own.” Worry happens when we assess the magnitude of our situation, against our own ability to fix it, and we determine that we don’t have what it takes to change it. When we KNOW that God is able to handle it, we don’t worry, we TRUST GOD! Worry exists where Truth and faith are absent.

Here are some truths to dispel worry:

Psalm 136:23-26 (AMP)

 

23 Who [faithfully] remembered us in our lowly condition,

For His lovingkindness endures forever;

24 And has rescued us from our enemies,

For His lovingkindness endures forever;

25 Who gives food to all flesh,

For His lovingkindness endures forever;

26 Give thanks to the God of heaven,

For His lovingkindness (graciousness, mercy, compassion) endures forever.

 

1. GOD REMEMBERS YOU WHEN YOU ARE DOWN. Friends and family may walk away and forget us, but God NEVER forgets us. You are always on His mind. He will never write you off, and he doesn’t leave you or forsake you. You are never too far down for Him. His arm is not too short to save. He embraces you in your condition, because His love endures forever.

 

2. HE DELIVERS US FROM OUR ENEMIES. The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy. He comes with his lies, and he comes through other people. He tries to bind us and take us captive through the sin of worry, doubt, and unbelief. But Jesus, the TRUTH, has come to break every chain and set us free. He doesn’t leave us locked and bound up by the enemy. He speaks his Word into our heart and mind, destroying the lies of the enemy. He delivers us, because His love endures forever.

 

3. HE GIVES US EVERYTHING WE NEED. He’s promised to give us food, shelter, clothing, and more importantly, HIS PRESENCE. He not only satisfies our fleshly needs, but the deepest longings of our soul. He has promised that those who seek the Lord, SHALL NOT LACK any good thing. (Psalm 34:10) The key to eliminating worry and lack is “SEEK THE LORD!” He provides for His own, because His love endures forever.

 

4. OUR RESPONSE IS TO GIVE THANKS TO GOD AND NOT WORRY. Doctors have discovered that you can’t be in a state of appreciation and fear, worry, or anxiety at the same time. In brain studies, the threatening messages from your amygdala (fear center of the brain) are cut off, and are unable to fester and replicate themselves, when you are in a state of ACTIVE APPRECIATION. So, stop worrying, and BE THANKFUL! Do yourself and your brain a favor, and have yourself a good ol’ thankfest every time you catch yourself boarding the worry train. Stop going down that track. It leads to nowhere.

Don’t worry! It’s OK. God has this, because His love endures forever!

I love you all! PV
