Mathew 11:28 —— Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
That sounds good, doesn’t it? Have you had enough heavy stuff in your life, and want to be free? It’s nice to know that we don’t have to figure everything out. We need to get comfortable with saying, “I don’t have a clue, but I’m not going to worry about it because God’s in control. I’m going to live free and light!”
When we’re overloaded with the cares of this life—struggling, labouring and worrying—we need some help. Our minds need to rest from worrying about how to take care of problems, our emotions need to rest from being upset all the time, and our will needs a rest from stubbornness and rebellion. So we need to be humble enough to call out to God and say, “I need help!” Your beginning doesn’t have to dictate your ending. Get God involved in every area of your life and allow Him to lead you into rest.
When the Word of God is preached to us, we start thinking and believing and then speaking that belief. We have never truly seen Jesus; nor have we seen Him crucified. But we can see it in the Bible. We choose to believe what is in the Bible and we speak it, when it is done we are transferred from hell to heaven.
Worry and worship are exact opposites, and we’d all be much happier if we learned to become worshippers instead of worriers. Worry opens the door for the devil, but worship is reverence and adoration for God that leads us into His presence. God created us to worship Him, and we cannot walk in victory if we don’t become worshippers.
Sometimes when we don’t have what we need or want, the enemy tries to discourage us and keep us from worshipping God. When a person is worried, worry actually magnifies the problem. Worry makes a problem look bigger than what it really is. Worry cannot change a situation, it is dangerous and unhealthy.
When Satan throws worry on you, I challenge you to stop what you’re doing, get down on your knees before God, and begin praising Him. Worship is a spiritual weapon, a warhead or bomb you can use against the enemy. Your prayers and worship will get you heavenly help, and you won’t have to fight your own battles.
So stop worrying about everything, give it to God, and live in grace. Grace isn’t just divine favour—it is power! Don’t waste another day of your life worrying. Determine what your responsibility is and what it is not. Don’t try to take on God’s responsibility. When we do what we can do, God steps in and does what we can’t. So give yourself and your worries to God and begin enjoying the abundant life He has planned for you.
“Look for God. Look for God like a man with his head on fire looks for water.”
