DON'T WORRY-WORSHIP

Ptr. Erwin Concepcion

 

Matthew 6:31-33 (KJV)

 

                "Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink?                        or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles                            seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.                             But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these                                     things shall be added unto you."

 

Reflect: How do you know you’re not experiencing the love of God?

 

You’re worried!

 

You can’t simultaneously worry and worship God. Every time you worry, you’ve forgotten how much God loves you. Worry is really acting like an atheist. It’s pretending you’re an orphan rather than a child of God.

 

Jesus tells us there’s a truth that’s much more important than anything we’re worrying about: We have a heavenly Father who created us, loves us, wants what is best for us, and is watching over us. He is working for our good and has given us hundreds of promises of his faithfulness.

Worry is pretending you don’t know any of that.

 

Worry can lead to anxiety, and anxiety can lead to depression which can lead to health problem. This is never the will of God for His people. It is the opposite of love that God wants His people to experience and express (read 1 John 4:7-10).

 

We are living today in a world full of pressure. You’ll either worry or worship for the rest of your life. You’ll either panic or pray. You’ll either look at your problems or look at God. Which will you choose?

 

If you’re experiencing incessant worries, meditate this Word of Jesus in Matthew 11:28-30 (KJV) “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

 

Prayer: "Almighty and Sustaining God, I believe tomorrow is in Your hands, so I will rest myself in Your grace today as I seek to live for You. Please open my eyes to see the opportunities You provide today so that I can serve You and do Your Kingdom work with focus, courage, and clarity. I choose You today, and not 'worry'. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen."
