What Is The Real Point Of You Worrying?

Have you ever been at a place in life where you were worried ‘sick‘ about a matter and then suddenly it ‘hit’ you and you questioned your own judgement, ‘why are you giving yourself all that stress?’ ‘Is it really all that serious that you are worrying about it?’

Wow! That’s some reality check, isn’t it? Yes, it is!

Worry is likened to a slave master and all of us at one point or the other must have been his slave.

It tells you what to do, when or how you should go about doing things. Worry is an evil spirit that controls your mind. Worry causes anxious thoughts to multiply and increase within you to the point where it causes you to do and say things in opposition to faith.

You worry about finances and how your bills are going to get paid. You worry about what to wear to work, deadlines you have to meet or even facing a boss who you find unfavorable.

Your thoughts go wild at times with what to cook and eat. You become anxious about weight gain and what others would say. Your mind at times is bogged down by the weather [too hot, too cold] or what the traffic would be like as you drive to work.

You worry about your spouse, your boyfriend or girlfriend – and you go like, ‘I wonder what is s/he doing, who is s/he with?’ You even worry about your children.

Yes, all of this again is the reality check!

But, guess what? God do not want us to worry about anything. Whenever you find the spirit of worry creeping in, you must come to the realization you can always turn to God and find comfort and consolation in His word. The Psalmist David knew that all too well.

“When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your comforts delight [my soul] me.” ~ Psalm 94:19 AMP

God’s word brings peace, joy and gives you a sound and confident mind. Of course it doesn’t make the situation to just disappear into thin air but when you turn your worries over to God, His peace reassures your heart that every adverse condition that you are faced with will in the fullness of God’s timing work to your benefit.

The Apostle Paul’s encouragement is further reassurance to us of the spiritual position, attitude and the mindset one must embrace as the antidote against fear, doubt, worry and anxiety.

“Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].” ~ Philippians 4:6-7 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Prayer

Heavenly Father, I thank you for your word and the assurance that you are with me. I thank you for your peace to guard my heart and mind so that when the spirit of worry comes it will not gain access into life. Every test, trial or adverse situation that I face, I now surrender to you in exchange for a sound and confident mind, in Jesus name, amen.

  1. Absolutely beautiful
    Philippians 4: 6 was the passage the Lord reminded me of just yesterday when I was pretty much starting to panic over certain situations
    But when we hand over our burdens to him, when we let God to let God, we can be rest assured he is in full control, and all things would work for God for those that love Him
    Thank you for this!

    • Hi Ima

      Happy to see you once again. Great contribution and I love that scripture. So appreciative of the reminder. Surely God do not want us to be anxious about anything. Someone once said, ‘If we take over worrying about every single thing then God won’t have any work o do.’ 🙂

      Basically it’s saying we need to leave everything to Him, cast all our cares upon Him with the understanding that He cares and want only what is best for us.

      Cheers! 🙂

  2. Hi Yvonne,

    Well this came just in time. I have a family member that worries constantly….she will call me several times a day and I’ve learned not to answer the phone, because I will only enable her. She won’t get help in any way.

    I’m going to email this to her and maybe … just maybe she will get the message. I’ve told her so many times to let go and let God in. We talked a lot about how God doesn’t want us to worry and be anxious, but maybe if it comes from someone other than me it will work.

    Thanks a bunch!

      Great to see you! Your presence is always so refreshing.

      I have to admit I used to be like your family member. 🙂 I had a spirit of anxiety. I worried about everything under the sun. It got so bad I started to exhibit signs of a stomach ulcer. Only thing – there was really nothing wrong with me, or at least the doctors found nothing wrong with me except the constant worry I subjected myself to.

      I overcame that problem after I got saved and began to read the word of God more and in His word I began to see where we are not supposed to worry and that all those years I was only doing myself harm when I did.

      I hope that your family member will truly get the message and receive both breakthrough and deliverance from the spirit of worry. My prayers for victory.

      Bless you abundantly. Cheers! 🙂
