Jesus said “Does worry add anything to your life? Can it add one more year, or even one day? So if worrying adds nothing, but actually subtracts from your life, why would you worry about God’s care for you?” Luke 12 v25 TPT
I find that I have to read the passages in Luke 12 on worry over and over again. Worry is still something that I struggle with. Every now and then it creeps in and steals my peace and my joy.
Worry does not add anything good to my life, instead it is drawing from me. It takes my peace and joy and turns it into anxiety and stress. And yet I continue to worry.
I desire to be carefree in the care of God. To recognize straight away when worry is beginning to creep in and to silence it straight away. I will silence the lies that we do not have enough to make it through and replace them with the truth that God always provides all of my needs. I will remember that I am valuable and God wants for me to always succeed and to never fail.
I am holding on firm to Jesus words… “Each and everyday He will supply your needs as you seek His kingdom passionately, above all else. So do not be afraid, dearest friends! Your loving Father joyously gives you His kingdom realm with all it’s promises!” Luke 12v 31-32 TPT
Jesus, help me to remain focused on the promises you have spoken over me in your word, and to live above the anxious cares in my life. Take my worries and replace them with peace and joy. I love you. Amen.
