This week we’ve declared war on worry. For many, this destructive force has held them hostage and prevented them from experiencing the peace Jesus came to offer.
Worry is saying, “God, I don’t believe I can trust You to handle this.” We think we need to control the situation. As counter intuitive as it seems, to really win over worry, I need to shift from control to surrender.
Worry is stewing without doing. It immobilizes us with a paralysis of fear. If we are to get going, we must shift our thinking from focusing on the temporal to that which is eternal.
If you’ve ever wrestled with worry, you’re not alone. In Matthew 6:25-34, Jesus declared war on worry because He understood how destructive an emotion it can be.
Where do you go for refuge? When troubles surround you, to whom do you turn to for help?
God is not elusive to those who seek Him with all their hearts.
If you want to be a giant killer like David, you have to do what David did.
Your battle is the Lord’s! Give it over to Him and face your giant in faith that God is with you!
If we are the light of the world as Jesus said, where does that light come from?
What is it that competes for your heart’s affection? Perhaps the best way to find out is to consider the course of your life right now?
