Why not let God?
Worry does not come to help, worry comes to take what it can. Worry is believing you cannot, faith in God is knowing He can!! (Matthew 6:30-34). So many of us right now, are caught up with tomorrows, instead of living for right now. Paying the bills, proms, graduations, vacations, all these things we worry about, we try to handle it all. Why not let God?
Believe it or not, these things God wants to handle for you also. Whenever we worry about, what, where, who and how, and when, this all distracts us from the fact God wants to handle it! When we try to do it all, all it does to us, is cause worry frustration and distress! This is nothing but the devil wanting to keep you from prayer and fellowship with God!
In these last days, Satan is working just as hard, and stays just as busy seeking to devour (I Peter 5:8). We need to put on the whole armor of God, stop doing it ourselves, start turning it all over to our God, who wants to carry our burdens so much that He reminds us in His word (I Peter 5;6-7). So many places He reminds us that He is there for us and will never forsake us!
Worry robs us of heath, wealth, and joy. All those things God wants us to have in our spirit. Healthy by being strong in the Lord and the power of His might (Ephesian 6:10). Wealthy in many ways, not just materially, My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus ( Philippians 4:19).
He wants us to experience His joy without all worldly distractions.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7). Give it to Jesus more today than ever, as the days are waxing worse! Why not let God?
