25"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 important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Matthew 6:25 NLT.
How many of us have heard the above verse and related passages? How many of us read it and think, yes, I will apply this to my life, I need to and will no longer worry.
Then several hours later, there I am sitting down, furrowed brow, worrying about the kids, or something at Church, or money, or anything!
How difficult is it not to worry? Is it a female thing?
Recently our Church studied Philippians.
God gives us an answer of how to deal with worry here too.
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 NLT.
We are to pray and petition. We are to be thankful. And God will give us PEACE. Yes PEACE which guards our hearts and minds. If we believe these verses then surely it makes sense that these promises will be fulfilled.
So I am going to try and think on these verses today. I need to! I have spent the last few weeks worrying about everything. The children, school, nursery, sickness, holidays, life in general! This is not what God wants for me. So join me in claiming these promises from the Lord and share with me how you combat worry.
