Stop The Worry

I Peter 5:6-7

Over the last few devotionals, we have been talking about trials and how we should respond. Today I have a simple but important word for you directly from God's Word: Don't worry.

I Peter 5:6-7 tells us: Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

Jesus said, "Don't take an anxious thought for tomorrow. Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof." When we worry about tomorrow, we pull tomorrow's clouds over today's sunshine.

Think about the incredible truth of Jesus' command, "Do not worry about tomorrow." It is like we have this 24-hour fuse. We are wired up to deal with the stresses of life one day at a time. If you worry about tomorrow today, you are putting a 48-hour load on a 24-hour fuse, and something is going to give somewhere.

Some people don't just worry about tomorrow, they worry about next week and next month. No wonder the fuse is blowing!

You see, what the mind cannot contain, it will impose upon the body. If your health is breaking down, worry may just be the problem. The Bible says to cast all of your care, the whole of your care, all your anxieties, on Him, once and for all.

Roll your burden on the Lord. The Bible says be anxious for nothing. And that means nothing. Do not worry about your children, do not worry about your money, do not worry about your future, do not worry about anything.

Your Heavenly Father does care for you, and it is His good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.

Upcoming Events

During the month of October in our AM Worship Services, we will be exploring the iLife. What we are talking about is the life that is being lived out intentionally. This last Sunday we talked about intentional living and the only way that we can is through Christ alone, and intentionally. That message is on the church website if you missed it, or you can click here. Next week We will be delving into iDie, then iWorship, iPray, and to close October iLove. Please make every effort to be here, for it can change your life if you put into practice intentional living.
