“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” (Philippians 4:6).Text — Philippians 4:4-8
To worry is to be troubled; to give way to mental anxiety or doubt. The mind that worries fails to disconnect from the past failure and also condemns the future before he gets there. Worry robs you of today’s joy and hinders you from maximizing your potential. Many youths today worry about many things such as what to wear, what to eat, how to pass their examination, how to pay their school fees, and what the future holds for them. Understand that worry solves no problem but rather complicates the problem. Worry can make you lose your sleep, and your appetite and even cause you to behave irrationally sometimes.
The Bible text of today gives us the antidote to worry. One, take all your worries and problems to God in prayer. Two, be thankful for everything. Three, think about the positive things in life by constant meditation on the word of God, and finally, have faith in God. Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:31, “Therefore take no thought, saying, what we shall eat? Or, what shall we drink? Or, wherewithal shall we be clothed?”
Worry solves no problem
Never worry but pray.
Prayer for today
Lord, help me to overcome all my worries.
