Be Worry Free!
We are to act on the Word of God that says to cast all of your worry and anxiety over on Him. Much like tossing your car keys to a friend for safe keeping. They are your keys and you can have them back whenever you want. The difference is that your friend is in control of them. You can have them back whenever you want but if someone wants them they will have to go ask your friend. He has the keys, you don’t. Our cares, worries, etc. should all be given to our Friend, God Almighty.
We must learn to replace worrisome, tormenting thoughts with the Word of the Living God. It is the Word that gives us life (quickens us) and keeps our focus on things true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous and praiseworthy. These are the things Philippians 4:8 tells us to think on.
When we do, we will have control of our minds and the peace of God will stand guard over our entire being (Phil. 4:7). Instead of worry tying the hands of God, His power will begin to operate in our behalf.
Begin now to appropriate the powerful peace of God. Start filling your mind with the engrafted Word which is able to save your soul (the seat of your will, emotions and thoughts). Meditate in the Word day and night and act upon it (Joshua 1:8). Declare the Word of Love that never fails and experience peace that passes all understanding. Begin to say, “I humble myself under the mighty hand of God Who cares for me and am lifted above worry and fear because I cast all my care upon Him” (1 Peter 5:6-7). Declare, “I have no fear or anxiety because God has not given me a spirit of fear; but of power and of love and of a calm, well-balanced mind that is disciplined and under the control of the Holy Spirit” (2 Timothy 1:7) Decree, “I have brought every thought to the obedience of Christ and therefore have cast down every imagination, thought and emotion that would dare to exalt itself against the knowledge of God. He has given me great peace and I cannot be offended because I love the precepts and statutes of God”(2 Corinthians 10:5; Psalm 119:165). The Good News in Christ Jesus is:You don’t have to worry again! The greater One dwells within you. He is able to keep you on the Victory side! Commit to it.
You will never worry again!
