REFUSE TO ENTERTAIN WORRY
Matthew 6 vs
27.■And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure [cubit] to his stature or to the span of his life.” |AMPLIFIED|
OUR Lord Jesus unveils that there are some folks who receive God’s word and the cares of this life choke the word to be unfruitful (Mark 4:19). The cares of this world implies the worries and anxieties of this life. Despite numerous life’s challenges, Jesus says worry is never the solution. Worry focuses on your limitations than the ability of God. Worry makes you think your problems are greater than God and His word. It makes you deny and ignore your strengths and focuses on your weakness. Worry drains your faith and instill fear in you. It shifts your focus from God and His word to how big your situations or problem may be.
It makes you lose hope in God’s word, your dreams, visions and gifts. It sucks your ability and leaves you a liability. Worry breeds distrust in God and amounts to murmuring against Him (Exodus 16:8). Worry doesn’t add any “cubit” to your stature (Matthew 6:27 ). This implies stagnation of your spirit, soul and body. It shows you a picture that you’re worthless, faithless, useless and hopeless. As a child of the most high God, worry is not God’s desire for you. You must meditate on the true word of God, not the voice of the devil or your situations (Jos 1:8). Worry is a bad friend that will leave you worst than ever.
Cherished one, many things will tempt you to worry but refuse to entertain worry. Give in to meditating on God’s word which will bring you joy, faith and hope for better life. You may be going through some challenges in life, but God is speaking to you that there is a way out in Him. The solution is not in worrying or being anxious. Meditate, declare, pray and act on what God’s word commands you (Phil 4:6). Cast all your burdens unto God for He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
_My hope and faith are anchored on the sure word of God. I refuse to be moved by the turbulence of this life. I refuse to entertain worries. I cast my cares on the LORD who daily cares and provides all my needs. I am resolute in His sufficiency in Jesus Name. Amen !_
Enjoy A Joyful Saturday!
