“Never worry about anything. Instead, in every situation let your petitions be made known to God through prayers and requests, with thanksgiving”. -Philippians 4:6-7
When God speaks His Words become law and they cannot be recalled. He says what He means and means what He says. So when He tells us not to be anxious or worry about anything, then that becomes a principle that we need to adhere to.
No one who has ever worried has ever changed a situation through the process of anxiety. Worry is just letting something or someone live rent free in your mind. You see worry doesn’t like to drive alone – 9 out of 10 times it is on a road trip with fear and that is a disaster waiting to happen.
So why does God not want us to operate in anxiety? Let’s look at Proverbs 12:25: “Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad”. When we entertain worry, it soon leads to discouragement and depression, and guilt will soon be living on your doorstep. The only way that we avoid it is to put away the welcome mat and let peace reign in us and be our umpire (Colossians 3:15 ).
Action Plan: I want to challenge you with this scripture “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). Cast your worries, fear and guilt on the Lord and don’t allow them to operate in your life. Rid yourself of all anxiety today!
