Do You Worry Too Much?
Which of you by worrying can add one cubit unto his stature? Matthew 6:27
The best thing you can say about worry:
It does no good.
The worst thing:
It does much harm.
I’m reminded of the little lady who said, “Don't tell me worry doesn't do any good. Most of the things I worry about never happen.”
But worse than that, it’s an expression of unbelief. Of lack of faith in God. It reveals that we are not trusting Him at that moment for the thing we are worried about.
Worry is absolutely useless. It doesn't cure any problems. It doesn't lift any burdens. It doesn't wipe away any tears. It never has; it never can; it never will! Worry can’t make you any taller, shorter, fatter, or thinner. It is so senseless, and it is therefore useless. But even worse, it is faithless. Worry is just the opposite of faith.
God has lovingly told us:
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
When we worry, we make God out to be a liar when God has said He will take care of us. See what God has said in Philippians 4:6-7. Memorize this passage today and get it in your heart: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
