Don’t Worry

Focus: 1 Peter 5:7 - KJV

7. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.


Matthew 6:25-34


To worry is to suggest that God is not in charge of our affairs. Meanwhile, the Lord has promised neither to leave nor forsake us. When we worry, we do so out of the fear that certain event or occurrence would impact us negatively. It borders on a lack of faith in God. Job was a man that bore the testimony of God directly. Unfortunately, he was a man full of worry. He was so worried that some calamity would befall him as he was not sure of the purity of his children or some other member of his family. Hence, out of worry, he engaged in sacrifice daily to wish away the effect of the wrong doings of any member of his family. But God is delighted more in obedience than sacrifice. Without faith, it is impossible to please God. As he thinks in his heart, so he is. Job was preoccupied with worry, though assuming he was appeasing God; yet, what he feared came upon him. This presupposes that when we worry, we assume that God may not be true to His promises regarding our lives. Look at it this way: God is good and all His works are good all through. So, it is expected that concerning us that He made in His image to oversee the reins of the earth on His behalf, He will be good. He is ordinarily good to lesser creatures of His, how much more those of us that are His children. To worry is to call Him a liar and to put ourselves in His stead to handle the affairs of our lives.


The bane of worry is that we are not able to do anything to affect the situation for which we worry by worrying. For instance, a family man who lacks money to pay rent, school fees or feed his family will only attract illness if he begins to worry over these things as his worry will never manufacture money. Neither will worry make a spinster be taken to the altar out of the blues. Nor will it make an apparent barren fruitful. Rachael worried for naught and only got rebuked by the husband for it. But, when God decided to proof Himself in her life, Joseph came. Rather than worry, let us allow God to be God in our lives by submitting all our cares unto Him and with that faith, engage in works that will bring fruition to our faith. Sarah had assumed she was over the age of copulation. But when faith was formed in her, she released herself to be taken again by Abraham and her laughter came. If upon her faith, she maintained she was overaged, Ishmael would have remained her son to Abraham and the heir to his blessings. Today, God is saying to us that we need to let go of the worry and let God prove Himself. For our God is good, all the time. Please commit the basis of your worry to prayer and let go.


The Lord will meet you at the points of your need in the name of Jesus. The power of the Lord will sweep away your worry and give you rivers in the deserts of life, in Jesus’ name. The one that provides for the birds of the air who neither sow nor reap shall meet your needs and wipe away your tears today, in Jesus’ name. In a manner that no man will be able to explain, God will show forth for you and strengthen your heart in Jesus’ name. That worry of the past shall never turn into any ailment in your body in Jesus’ name. Every plan of the devil to have you consumed by worry is destroyed today in Jesus’ name. Your miracle shall dumbfound the world in the name of Jesus Christ.


SOLUTION: Let God be God. Stop wresting the radar of your life from Him through worry. His ways are not our ways. One thing be sure of: all He does is ever good. When it appears otherwise, it is that His name may be glorified in the end. Therefore, never overthrow Him in your affairs through worry. Worry solves nothing; it compounds it.
