Today’s Scripture Study: Mathew 6:25-33
Topics for this week: Whatever is going to Happen will Happen, why overthink it?

Does overthinking change the results of your circumstances? Let’s find out: Matthew 6:25-33 says,

Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing?Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life? And why should you be anxious about clothes? Consider the lilies of the field and learn thoroughly how they grow; they neither toil nor spin.Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his magnificence (excellence, dignity, and grace) was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith. Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear?For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all.But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.

Friends, Itโ€™s so easy to become anxious when things arenโ€™t moving along as quickly as we would like them to. We have had our seasons of disappointment and setbacks that make us fear that maybe things are never going to happen. Since we will never be able to completely get rid of biting our nails and sitting at the edge of our seats โ€ฆwe will have to learn healthy ways to live during those seasons.

โ€œHow can a person deal with anxiety? You might try what one fellow did. He worried so much that he decided to hire someone to do his worrying for him. He found a man who agreed to be his hired worrier for a salary of $200,000 per year. After the man accepted the job, his first question to his boss was, โ€˜Where are you going to get $200,000 per year?โ€™ To which the man responded, โ€˜Thatโ€™s your worryโ€™โ€
โ€“ Max Lucado

Iโ€™ve come to the conclusion that whatever is going to happen will happen, whether I become anxious or not. Knowing that I do not HAVE to do life without God quickly snaps me out of the what ifs. God never promised anyone an easy lifeโ€ฆbut He did promise that He WILL be with us every step of the way. I am a living testimony that God gives strength for lifeโ€™s journey. Seriously, if it wasnโ€™t for God on my side, I donโ€™t know where I would have been.

Two Lessons Iโ€™ve learned in my walk with God:

1.)Tune out the negative voices that interrupt your peace.

Satanโ€™s thoughts bring accusation, doubt, fear, misery, destructive thoughts and anything evil. So, block them out. They lead to greater anxiety and hopelessness. Godโ€™s voice speaks peace, comfort, wisdom, healing to a hurting heart. Itโ€™s always gentle and reasonable. Always uplifting and empathetic. Godโ€™s voice gives you guidance and stability. Fear decreasesย in Godโ€™s presence. In the Bible, Satan is constantly bringing doubt by saying, โ€œDid God really tell you โ€ฆ ?โ€ Itโ€™s a great time to get him off your back with a quick response, โ€œYes, God did and thereโ€™s nothing you can do about it.โ€

2.) Learn to know Godโ€™s voice like you know your family members voices.

Learn to relax knowing with confidence that God will not leave in the middle of the conversation. We always know when a conversation is coming to an endโ€ฆHe leaves no question unanswered, and you get all the information needed to go on. Stay with God until the conversation in your head is over. If the conversation lasts from sunset to daybreak, or night to day โ€ฆ it makes no difference. The conversation stills goes on in the car, on a plane, in the grocery store, in the shower, and in the bed at nights.

Time spent with God is never wasted. Some conversations take a longer time based on the topicโ€ฆso be patient. If God keeps us in conversation for two days or a month or yearsโ€ฆit means He still has more to sayโ€ฆso we will sit still. Whatever your present anxiety may be โ€ฆ Godโ€™s timing is perfect. Keep the conversation going and donโ€™t interrupt with your deadlines. If God is speaking, wait on Him to finish. Do not panicโ€ฆwith the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness.

Whatever God saysโ€ฆDo! If God gives you REST โ€ฆ then REST. God always finishes the conversation with threeย words โ€“ โ€œIt is well.โ€ and so it is well, it is well. Be still and know that He is God even though you are going through a storm, the One who rides upon the wings of the storm is with you.

Hoping you’re blessedโค๏ธ

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind and to set the oppressed free. Amen๐ŸŒน
