WORRYING IS PROFITLESS

(NKJV) Matthew 6:25-27 “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?”

(CEV) Matthew 6:25-27 “I tell you not to worry about your life. Don’t worry about having something to eat, drink, or wear. Isn’t life more than food or clothing? 26 Look at the birds in the sky! They don’t plant or harvest. They don’t even store grain in barns. Yet your Father in heaven takes care of them. Aren’t you worth much more than birds? 27 Can worry make you live longer?

Worrying is negative meditation. You were Not Created to Come here & worry about anything.  Worry is a form of fear and fear is not supposed to exist in you (that is why The Bible Says; Phil 4: 6). Fear & worry are a negative use of your imagination. You are an overcomer through the Mighty Name of Jesus. Worry cannot change the past, but it will ruin the present. Do not worry that you don’t have something, no when you have Him you have everything – just spend time with him. Whatever is worrying you, get over it.

Don’t feel sorry for yesterday (Phil; 3,13) & don’t worry about tomorrow because when tomorrow comes God will give you Grace for then, so in the meantime you should live a life of Faith one day at a time: Form a habit of being positive. Stop worrying about what other people say. You don’t have to worry about fighting your battles on your own, but have a pure heart & The Blessing will do the Fighting for you. Stop worrying about how you started badly & concentrate on having  a good finish      

Our Heavenly Father Wants us to be convinced that worrying adds more burden to our already existing problems. In fact, worrying can kill you before your time. Worrying has being part and parcel of human life from the time of the garden of Eden to date. Worrying can be defined as: being troubled in the mind as a result of a possible pending danger or failure. The opposite of worry is peace of mind. Our Lord Jesus Christ Made a statement that challenges our attitude of worrying: “Which of you by worrying can add even one hour to his life? “

Matt; 6, 25 – don’t worry about your life. V26 – God is your Source; if He takes care of birds, He can take care  of you, because you are more important than birds; put all your  trust in God; v27 – there is no increase by worrying; worry will not produce Godly increase. Worry supports satan’s agenda. Worrying is destructive; v28 – don’t worry about clothes God will take care of your clothes.

Jn 21: 21-22 – stop worrying about what God is Doing or Not Doing with somebody else, you just keep on being Faithful.

Rom 12: 16-21 – quit worrying about what somebody is doing or not, but be at peace with them (when people are mistreating you don’t avenge but be good to them

In other words, worrying does not bring solution to our problems. In fact, worrying rather takes life.  Let us bear in mind that there is a difference between positive thinking and worrying. Worrying means pondering over all the possible negative outcomes of a particular situation. Is it really possible for one to live a life free from worrying? Yes, it is! We may be wondering how we can achieve that. Let us take a clue from Jesus Himself. Most often we forget that He was fully man; there has not been any human being troubled on earth as Jesus Christ was – yet He had so much peace that He could pass on this peace to His disciples (John 14:27). When He was so troubled to the point of sweating blood, He laid face down and prayed (Matthew 26:39).

The secret to worry-free and anxiety-free life is prayer (Phil.4:6). Unfortunately, many of us will complain and cry all day without whispering a sincere prayer of Faith. After Jesus prayed, He received special strength and Grace to Go forward. In times of anxiety and worry, let us resort to prayer. Let us channel that energy for worrying to praying. Let us confess the Word of God concerning the challenge we are in and trust in Faith for God to Perform. Be still and know that God is LORD. Worrying is seriously profitless. We worry when we try to do things yourself, God Wants us to rely on Him  Worry never solves your problem, – you can actually make yourself sick by worrying

Stop worrying perpetually about everything, otherwise there will not be any positive progress in your life. Worry is a Blessing blocker. Don’t worry – cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, please help me to always be at peace, trusting in Your Faithfulness to Protect and Provide. May I not be anxious for anything. By prayer, I will let my request be known to You with the assurance that You will perform.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
