Verse Of The Day : Cast your burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain you: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Psalms 55:22

Thought of The Day: When you take your troubles to God He deals with them.

LISTEN : You can overcome worries by faith in God. God cares about us and takes care of our troubles. Worry is a menace to human life. In fact, life can’t be pleasant when it’s spent on worry. Worrying about a thing blinds the eyes to opportunities and solutions to the problem. Most times people suffer and die from worry related illnesses. My dear, resist worry! What is worry? Worry is to feel or cause to feel anxious or troubled about actual or potential problems. Beloved, is your heart troubled? Are you worried about certain things in your life and don’t know what to do about them? Here are three ways to deal with your worry:

* Release Your Worry To God In Prayer – tell God about your problems. The Bible says, “Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you.”(1 Peter 5:7). Release your worry to God in prayer. Don’t allow your situation to shut up your mouth from praying to God. Leave your worries with God and have confidence in Him to handle it for you.

* Fix Your Thoughts On The Power Of God, Not Your Problems – if you focus on your problems you’ll lose focus of God. When your problems are always in view, God will soon be out of view to you. So, no matter the circumstance, turn your attention away from negative and unbelieving thoughts to the positive and life-giving thoughts of faith, hope, and love.

* Instruct Yourself In The Ways Of Faith And obedience – determine to discipline yourself to build faith and obedience in God. Never come to the point where you begin to doubt the promises of God. Even when you can’t practically see any door of escape from your troubles, trust and obey the God who can make a way where there seems to be no way. Always fight worry and anxiety by remembering and trusting God’s promises. Be wise! 

What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Don’t continue to bear your burdens alone, take them to God.
2. Work on your thoughts by exchanging negative and unbelieving thoughts with positive and life-changing ones.
3. Determine to build up your faith in the living God.
4. Whatever the reason for your worry is, don’t lose hope; rather trust in God.

Prayer : Precious Father, my trust is in you. Therefore, when my heart is troubled, help me to overcome my worries, amen!

A Word Of Blessing : Today, I speak on your life, you’ll not die of worry and frustration. May God deliver you from every burden that’s designed to destroy your life, amen!

Reflection : Life can’t be pleasant when it’s spent on worry; for worrying about a thing blinds the eyes to opportunities and solutions to the problems.

Quote : “He who focuses on his problems will lose focus of God; for he who has his problems always in view, will soon have God out of view.”
