All of us have more than one reason to worry; worry about future, career, health, beauty, the reason might be different but the intensity of this emotion is the same for all.
Even I had a huge reason to worry. My worry was the biggest and most important thing in the whole world for me, I thought, just like any other victims of worry would feel. But NOT ANY MORE. My problems remain the same, it even got worse sometime back but I am not going to worry any more. Wise people who know what worry is; what it brings with it and what it takes away from you; will not worry any more.
“Can all your worries add a single moment in your life?” Matthew 6:27
First of all, your anxiety is not going to change the good or bad things that is going to happen or has already happened. Paying attention to these disturbing things will only make you weak – both mentally and physically.
We human beings have this special capability of thinking, which is very good; yet at times we exaggerate things in our mind so much that that leads us to worry even more. My dear friends, worry only steals your precious time. Over the course of time you forget to laugh. you forget to hope. you forget to live.
Worry can only kill your joy. Is your worry predominating your joy? Then, you must kill it. Let me show you how. I can only show the biblical way.. If you are ready then please read the verse below.
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 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
This verse says it all. I have written below four points on the above verse which helped me cast my burden on a reliable person – GOD and stop worrying. Actually, I read this in a bible book “First steps new testament” given to me by my dad.
God promises us a special blessing if we do the following four things:
Stop worrying and start praying
Don’t ever think that your need is too insignificant for God’s attention. He wants you to pray about everything.
Tell God your needs
Even though God is all-knowing and is well aware of your situation, he desires that you verbalize your needs to him and place them in his hands.
Present your requests with thanks
Instead of praying with feelings of doubt, you can thank God for his answers in advance. Thank him for what he has done and thank him for the present situation no matter how bad it is.
Receive God’s peace
If you do the above steps, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds during those difficult times in your lives.
There are other wonderful verses that’ll help you battle worry in your life.
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you” 1 peter 5:7
“Fill your minds with those things that are good and that deserve praise: things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and honourable. Put into practice what you learned and received from me, both from my words and from my actions. And the God who gives us peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:8,9
Fix your thoughts on the power of God, not on the problems of life. Worry will always change you for the worse; God has the power to change you and your circumstances for better.
