Don’t Waste Time Worrying – Give All Your Concerns to God in Prayer

Happy Friday Saints.

Philippians 4:6 ” DON’T WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING; INSTEAD, PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING.”

Did you know that the Lord doesn’t want you to worry about ANYTHING?

Jesus asked in Matthew 6:27 “CAN ANY OF YOU BY WORRYING ADD A SINGLE HOUR TO YOUR LIFE?”

Worrying has never solved a problem, it has never improved a situation and it has never added anything beneficial to your life. It is a complete and utter waste of time.

Proverbs 12:25 says that “WORRY WEIGHS A PERSON DOWN.” Worry is the complete opposite of staying positive and finding solutions.

I once read that worrying is like sitting on a rocking chair. You feel like you’re doing something but you’re going nowhere. Some people even think that you’re being irresponsible if you don’t sit down and worry with them. No, they’re wasting time worrying when they could be working to make things better.

Worrying makes a difficult situation HEAVIER. It makes a crisis seem unbearable and impossible to overcome.

Saints, you control how long you worry about something. Why worry about anything, when you can PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING?

And the results of praying in faith about EVERYTHING are found in Philippians 4:7 “AND THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH TRANSCENDS ALL UNDERSTANDING WILL GUARD YOUR HEARTS AND YOUR MINDS IN CHRIST JESUS.”

Peace is the absence of worry and is the result of trusting God. Why be weighed down with worry when you can enjoy the peace of God?

Don’t waste any more time worrying about anything. Choose to give ALL your concerns to God in prayer.

Have a wonderful and peaceful weekend. God bless and lots’a love,
Warren
