1 Peter 5:6-7 says, humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Question: What is attached to worrying?
Have you ever given thought as to why you worry? I am sure you probably have. Worrying is attached to the “unknown” that’s why we worry. If you didn’t have to be concern about how things are going to get done or how it will work out, you would not worry. The unknowns that are in our lives are the real issue aren’t they? We have been in care of many things and others depend on us to get things done, our families depend on us to do our part.
In the back of our minds we hear all these voices speaking to us telling us what we should do what we shouldn’t do, and after much prayer spilling our hearts out to Jesus, we get up off our knees and yet that worrying is still in the back of our minds. What happen from the time we got down on our knees to the time we got up? There was only a fraction of a second that went by, there’s no way we lost it or did we?
Often times especially when you are in a patch of sorrow and spiritually in a drought, one needs to stay in His presence until He blesses you. We live in a microwave world that we even come to God with that same mentality. God doesn’t desire for us to be rushing Him with an answer. He is wanting us to stay for a while, enjoy the fellowship, talk to Him tell Him all of your concerns and then He wants you to remain at His feet and listen to what He has to say to you. But because we are so much in a rush we don’t stay we get up and expect God to be blessed by our little time we gave Him.
I know for myself when I have these seasons I stay at the altar until I hear from Him and when I get in that zone where my mind is totally fixed on Him, nothing or no one else matters. It’s like it’s just Him and I at that altar. Family we have to pursue God better then what we are already doing. You’ve heard the saying (PUSH) Pray Until Something Happens, do it!
Remember worrying is attached to the Unknown and once we stop focusing on those unknowns we can truly be free in our mind, hearts, and spirit. Worrying is a slave master who works you around the clock, giving you no breaks, no time to eat and sleep. The slave master of worry doesn’t like or love you, it doesn’t care about you at all. Its main concern is to weaken you remove all hope until it finally destroys you completely that you can’t even recognize yourself.
