Be Free of Worry

Matthew 6:24, 25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

So many of us worry about many things. If you let it, it will completely consume you. Worry of finances, job security, not finding a job, health and so on. Notice in the sentence before I said, if you let it, it will completely consume you. Worry is not from God. We ourselves make ourselves worry.
Luke 21:34 “Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you unaware"

So, do you want to be free of worry? Here is how you do so...

Replace your constant work and worry with an overflow river of refreshing rest and peace that can only come from God. Trust, and seek wisdom from the heavenly Father. Trust. That is something easier said than done. If you put complete trust in God, your life will be so much more stress free, and also free of worry! God will provide all of your needs, but you also have to learn to be content with what you have and how much you need; to not want more.
1 Peter 5:7 "Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you".

God is our provider, for our physical and spiritual needs. Seek freedom of worry through His spiritual provision by meditating on the Bible (God's word!) and getting alone with God in prayer. Ask Him to free you of worry, and be prepared for situations that at first might want to make you want to worry, but put complete trust and faith in God to provide and for Him to come through.
Philippians 4:6-7 "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus".

I once heard that "worrying is the same as not having faith in God". Think about that statement, I believe it to be true.

You already have everything you need to overcome worry! Praise God! Living a life full of worry will take a toll on your body and mind! Don't put yourself through that!
Overcoming worry:
By the power of prayer and praise
By the power of the Holy Spirit
By the power of God, with His love and care

You don't have to go through worry and tough times alone! Turn to your Heavenly Father and let Him take it all from you! But also, I am here if any of you want to talk. By phone, Internet or in person!

Now, go and be free!
