“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”_(Jeremiah 29:11)
Haddon W. Robinson once said, _”What worries you masters you”._ *Always remember that one of the tactical operations employed by Satan to press you down emotionally and spiritually, is to make you a slave like a worrying soul in demonic custody.*If keeping some Christians worried about worldly possessions isn’t a workable weapon to make some Christians belittle and underrate the omnipotence of God, he wouldn’t have continued to use it as a bait to hook people from God.*
God knows that anxiety and worry are from Satan, not from Him. From our memory verse for the day, the Word of God has made it conspicuous to us that, God already has thought about all our physical and spiritual needs. *His plans for us are not evil but excellent as compared to the weariness of one’s body and soul through worries.*
Brethren, if we confide in our Lord Jesus Christ and His promises, we shall never be worried in life. Instead, His will shall be our will, we shall have thoughts of peace and not of evil. We shouldn’t think about our problems in life when we have truly given our lives to Christ Jesus as the controller of our destinies. Worrying wears you out. What if the desires that are responsible for your worries are not in line with that of Yahweh who knows you and the best you need?
*Sometimes people get worried because of the worldly things they seek to possess.* They compare themselves to this who have what they don’t have, and on top of that, they long for things that will make them lovers of the world and not to bring them closer to Christ. *Never be worried when you are not having what somebody owns or because you think time is closing down on you. If that is your worry, then you will not get to the expected end which God’s Word has prepared for us in Heaven. God knows our needs. *Ours is to pray and be submissive to His Word, and leave the rest to be provided by God in order to humiliate worries and override them.*
*PRAYER*: Dear Lord Jesus, be my Master forever and take away my worries. AMEN*
