ANXIETY IS A DISTRACTION
Main Text: PHILIPPIANS 4:6
Be careful for nothing: but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Proverbs 3:5-6- Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths.
Anxiety, worry and tension are some of the most destructive forces we face each day in our lives. They sap our strength and slowly undermine our faith, keeping us from maturing in the Lord(luke8:14).If you are to grow in your relationship with Jesus, you must discover God’s plan for your freedom from the crippling cycle of stress.
Anxiety occurs when we face situations and choose to rely upon our own strength rather than upon God and His word. By doing this, we are actually engaging in a subtle form of idolatry. In other words, we should learn to trust God alone. It is God’s desire for us His children to be absolutely free from
worry. Jesus said, “Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest”-Matthew 11:28. To enter that rest, we have to cut off anxiety.
Jesus confronted anxiety in (Matthew 6:25-34), He tells us to imagine how God feeds the birds of the air and arrays the lilies of the field. How much more will He care for His children?
As we grow in our understanding of God’s love for us, we realize that nothing in this world can separate us from His love.(Rom8:38,39),no financial burden, family crisis, jobless situation, nothing in the past nor in future. Because He cares so deeply for us, we can cast our cares upon him.
