BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING
Rhapsody of Realities 1st January, 2021
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or,
What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these
things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have
need of all these things (Matthew 6:31-32).
Why should anyone read this and still fret about anything in
life? The one who has told you not to worry about tomorrow is the owner of
tomorrow; He’s aware that everything you require for an excellent life has
already been made available. So, refuse to be burdened with stress and anxiety.
Don’t worry about your work, family, business, finances, or
anything. Worry is fear in disguise. It’s fear of negative possibilities; the
imminence of unwanted outcomes. Fear attracts its images. If you keep worrying
about getting sick, for example, soon enough, you’ll fall sick.
The cure for worrying is living in God’s Word. Jesus said,
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you
rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is
light” (Matthew 11:28- 30). Philippians 4:6 says, “Be careful for nothing; but
in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be
made known unto God.”
Act on the Word. Rather than worry, receive whatever you
require, and live in the consciousness of Christ’s victory, grace and abundant
provisions. Anything short of a life of absolute joy and fulfilment in Christ
Jesus isn’t God’s best for you.
Hebrews 4:3 says, “For we which have believed do enter into
rest, as he said….” God finished all His works from the foundation of the world
before He made man and rested from His works. That’s the same life He’s given
us; a life free of struggles.
Dear Father, thank you for dispelling every form of anxiety
in my heart through the Word. I have already overcome Satan, the world and
every crisis, being conscious that the greater One lives in me. I live in the
peace and provisions of Christ. You’ve perfected all that concerns me. The
peace of God which passes all understanding mantles my heart and mind, in
Christ Jesus. Amen.
Philippians 4:6 AMPC; Deuteronomy 31:6; 2 Timothy 1:7
