Does Worry Ends Where Faith Begins?

DI WORRY ENDS

Worry has a way of consuming us; one thought leads to another, then the next thing you know the thoughts have turned to a feeling. You no longer feel good; there is tension in your stomach; you’re unable to eat.

“A few drinks will calm me down,” you say to yourself, it does take the pain away but now if the worry returns you’re in such a more heightened state. Your thoughts will be on overdrive.

When we are worried faith can be the last thing we want to think about, but that is when you need faith the most. Some people will say, but it’s not that easy, you can’t just wish worry away, and yes they are right.

So do this instead, ask yourself this, Is there anything I can do to relieve the worry?

If yes, then do it as soon as possible, ask for help if need be.

If the answer is no, no matter what you do, it will not change the outcome. Why worry?

 

 

Keep Trust in God, And It Will Happen

in god we trust

Habakkuk 2:3 NLT
Wait patiently, for it will surely take place.

Has God promised you something and humanly speaking you see no way it can come to pass? Are you having a hard time waiting?

Read this scripture: ‘if it seems slow… wait patiently, for it will surely take place.’ God does things on schedule, and your appointment is still on his calendar. Be assured that nothing the enemy does can pre-empt the plan of God for your life.

When He gives you a promise, it’s like a seed. First it must fall into the fertile soil of faith and be given time to grow. Then it must be watered regularly through prayer and the Word of God.

It won’t come to pass because you push and try to manipulate: ‘[its]… not by might, not by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord’ (Zechariah 4:6 KJV). If god has promised you something, stand on His Word and remind yourself, ‘this will come to pass.’

The story of Joseph’s life could be summed up in this scripture: Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the Lord tested him’ (Psalm 105:19 NKJV).

Why test something? To reveal its strength; to see if it holds up or falls under pressure. What has God promised you? Do you believe Him? How strong is your faith?

If its weak, God will put you back in the school of faith so you can learn the lessons, pass the tests, and graduate.

‘Without faith it is impossible to please [God], for he who come to God must believe that He is…a rewarder’ (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV)

The word for you today is: keep trust in God, and it will happen.

Thanks for reading.
