Worry sees the problem – it does not see God

Romans 4:18-21 (AMP)
18 [For Abraham, human reason for] hope being gone, hoped in faith that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been promised, So [numberless] shall your descendants be.
19 He did not weaken in faith when he considered the [utter] impotence of his own body, which was as good as dead because he was about a hundred years old, or [when he considered] the barrenness of Sarah’s [deadened] womb.
20 No unbelief
or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God,
21 Fully satisfied
and assured that God was able and mighty to keep His word and to do what He had promised.

Abraham had a problem – he was super old and had no kids.  Abraham saw beyond his problem and believed God.  It worked for Abraham.  Move beyond worry and anxiety in your life.  We all have things in our life to worry about and be anxious about.  If we don’t have anything like that today then we likely will tomorrow.  Life is real and things come at us.  The good news is that we have God in our lives to help us get through things.  Instead of worry, we need to cast that out and begin to choose right thoughts and expect good things to happen in our lives.  Faith is released by speaking and thinking right things in our lives.  It is time for us to start trusting God and cast all of our care on God.

A lot of us have been putting up with a lot of junk from the Devil and it is time that we get back at the Devil.  Recognize that anxiety and worry are from the Devil.  If we choose to believe the worry that comes from the Devil then our lives will never change.  We have to be aggressive against the enemy.  We have to take action to fight some of the negative feelings that come into our lives.

Worry sees the problem but it does not see God.  It is good to see our problem, but we also have to see where our problem stands in relationship with God.  We should pray to nullify our worry rather that pray because we are worried.  We need to make sure we have the actions to go with our faith.  So we pray with faith knowing our prayers will be answered.  Our faith sees God and knows that something will happen that we cannot see.

Hebrews 11:6 (AMP)
6 But without faith it is impossible to please
and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.

  1. Lovely smile. =) Good title. At root, we wouldn’t even view the problem to be so big if we saw Him and also ourselves through HIS eyes. Everything changes then. A related thought….on suffering. We view everything, esp God, autobiographically.
