Are You Worried About Things in Your Life?
Worry can lead to stress and being easily angered which then lead to many other bad physical and mental situations. But what effect does it have on your spirit and your relationship with God? If you look at the Bible you will find that worry is considered to be quite serious and when we put together all these points in the Bible we find that worry results in a serious conclusion: That conclusion is that worry is viewed as sin; sin is not pleasing to God; sin separates us from God and from being able to grow in our relationship with Him, it can keep God from working in our life.
Many times throughout the Bible Jesus addressed this issue of worry and doubt, “O you of little faith: to describe people who were worried about the future: their physical needs (Matthew 6:30), their physical safety (Matthew 8:26), their inability to find a solution to a problem (Matthew 14:31), and their lack of resources for ministry (Matthew 16:8). Every time Jesus would address this and saw that people were worried about their circumstances, Jesus linked their worry to a lack of faith. In Hebrews we see the writer say that “without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6), Paul also wrote that “whatever is not from faith is sin” (Romans 14:23). Worry is not from faith, so a lifestyle of worry is certainly not pleasing to God. It is sin and shows that we really do not trust God. Let me assure you we can trust God, He has proven His integrity and trustworthiness time and time again.
If you tend to worry about things, go to God and confess your sin to God and ask Him to help you and put your faith in Him (Philippians 4:6-7).
