Worry Worts

Let’s face it; many of us have a problem with worry.  We tend to look at life through a lens of worry and fear.  Anxious, fearful thoughts fill our minds: “I am going to lose my job… are my children okay… my marriage is …  are we going to be be able to make it financially… my goose is cooked!!!”  How many of us have those kinds of worried thoughts? Jesus said, “Do not worry about your life.” He said that because it's not good for us.
Worry is not good for us because it is wasteful.
Worry does not solve problems… it does not dry tears… it does not draw us closer to God. It is a total waste of time and energy.

Worry is not good for us because it is harmful.
Worry will sap your strength and debilitate your body. It can easily produce ulcers, insomnia, and a host of other problems.  Worry is the equivalent of putting sand in your car’s gas tank. It gums up the works.

Worry is not good for us because it is sinful.
Worry is the opposite of faith – “Whatever is not from faith is sin” (Rom. 14:23). Worry tells God you do not trust Him, and you do not think He is able to take care of you and meet your needs.

Did you know there is a simple answer to worry? Transfer ownership of everything you have over to God.
You see, we worry about things we possess, the things I listed above or whatever. Do we ever really worry about other people’s things? Not me… and not you, because it is not ours. Everything we have has been given to us by God, they are His.
