How much time have you wasted worrying? It’s sad to think of all the minutes, hours and days that have been stolen from us by worry. It would seem that we’d learn our lesson that worry doesn’t work. No problem has ever been solved by it.
Jesus spoke about worry. Matthew 6:25 (NIV) “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life …” Strong, straightforward words from Jesus—“Do not worry!”
Paul, a key leader of the early church talked about this issue too. Look at what he wrote in Philippians 4:6, 7 (TLB) “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus.”
The psalm writer David wrote about how to live a worry-free life in Psalm 55:22 (TPT) “… Leave all your cares and anxieties at the feet of the Lord, and measureless grace will strengthen you.”
God designed you to function best when you’re at peace on the inside. To have this kind of peace we must give God our worries and surrender the control of our lives to Him. We must trust that God’s got us! He cares for you, and He’ll take care of you! Peace!
