“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
Of all things God asks us to let go of worry. As a mother, I know worries get piled up to the ceiling. Are grosheries done, and in order, do we have enough money for milk, are bills paid, essentials taken care of? Does the laundry have to be washed again? Are there any events coming up, what about birthdays, holidays? Worries are part of life, and we are tempted at every side.
While worries is part of life, and are un escapable, God wants us to take it easy. He wants us to let go of our worries, and let him handle our lives. He wants us to trust him, he wants us to surrender every worry to him. What are we constantly worried about? Can we hand those worries to God, and trust him?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart lean not unto your own understanding. Acknowledge God in all your ways, and he will direct your path.
I also want to share an insight from one of our Igniters on the subject of worry and fear.
” FEAR is not NORMAL. Fear is a spirit. Many people react to bad news or evil news and life changing occurrences in a very negetive way and then let fear take over their life (for the next several weeks) instead of having FAITH and TRUSTING God to turn the situation around. How can a believer doubt what God can do?
Our faith should not be wobbly or shaky; we can trust God at all times. God did not create us to live in FEAR. We were told that He did not give us the spirit of fear but of love, peace, and sound mind. Think about that.
WORRY is not NORMAL. God never created us to WORRY. We cannot be a SLAVE to FEAR and WORRY because we are His sons and daughters. Refuse to embrace fear
Let it go! Let peace and joy in. God wants you to be full of peace and joy.By Daniel Okorie
