Chosen by God!
“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” (Matthew 6:34 MSG)
Worrying never solves anything. In fact, worrying only causes us to worry even more. While we’re worrying, we are missing the beauty of the day God made. We are missing moments in time that we can never get back. We are missing the blessings of this moment.
Worry takes our focus off of God and causes us to be distracted, and distraction is a tool of the enemy. So, when we worry we play into the enemy’s hands. We’re not available to God since our focus is not on God, which means we can’t hear Him. Don’t give the enemy power over you.
So, what's the cure for worry? I'm glad you asked!
The cure for worry:
“Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” (Philippians 4:6-7 MSG)
“Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength – carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” ― Corrie Ten Boom
