Worry! Doesn’t everybody worry? Isn’t that what a good parent does? No, and you shouldn’t! Worry is fear and just as fear is deadly, so is worry. It can literally paralyze your faith, making it inoperative and you’ll get no results because you’re focusing on the wrong things.
Worry means you’re not trusting God and His Word. It’s a choice and you can do it. You’re not a slave to worry. If you’re born-again, you have the Holy Spirit to help you.
Even birds have enough sense not to worry because God takes care of them. Our Heavenly Father loves us and has so provided everything we’ll ever need. We need to believe and receive! That’s where our faith comes in and gets the promises.
Matthew 6:26 (KJV)
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Matthew 10:31 (KJV)
31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
2 Peter 1:3-4 (KJV)
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. [When we receive the promises, we partake of God’s own divine nature.]
So, just how do you stop the worry? That’s an easy answer: you stop feeding it and replace it with the promises of God. Bind the worry thoughts and command them to leave in the Name of Jesus. You can’t worry about the problem and meditate on the promises at the same time.
Speaking the Word out loud will eventually displace the worry thoughts. And though you might have to attack those thoughts minute by minute at first, you will get the victory if you keep at it. Your whole faith walk depends on it.
By not feeding the worry with thoughts about the problem, you’ll starve it and it’ll wither and die. Speaking the truth of God’s Word will feed your faith and override the worry, setting you free.
John 8:32 (KJV)
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
