WHY DO HUMANS WORRY SO?
Learn to cast your cares and worries on your maker and relax. He has all the answers.
You won’t ever gain anything by worrying; today, put an end to worry in your life.
An unknown poet wrote: “Said the Robin to the Sparrow, ‘I should really like to know why these anxious human beings rush around and worry so.’ Said the Sparrow to the Robin, ‘Friend, I think it must be that they have no heavenly Father, such as cares for you and me.”
According to Bob Gass, “If you seek wealth, you will worry about every pound. If you seek health, you will fear every blemish and bump. If you seek popularity, you will obsess over every conflict. If you seek safety, you’ll jump at every crack of the twig. But if you focus each day on God’s kingdom, ‘He will give you everything you need.”
The scripture in Matthew 6:33 says “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and every other thing shall be added unto you.”
Sometimes, we need to just pause and think about what we are worrying about! Most times what we actually worry about never gets to happen. Sometimes, we fear the worst from happening and fail to realize that the problem is with our thinking and not in reality. Worrying causes stress and anxiety which can cause health complications such as high blood pressures, psychological disturbances, autoimmune disorders and even death.
There is no need to worry about possessions, titles and all sorts to the detriment of your health. It’s time to take account of your blessings and be grateful! John Mason remarked ‘When you compare what you want with what you have, you will be unhappy. Instead, compare what you deserve with what you have, and you will discover happiness.’
Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? No! This enemy called worry steals your creativity, peace and joy, and depletes your sense of completion which comes from within and can’t be achieved by the acquisition of things. Worrying adds to the burden of life. It takes your focus off what God can do and keeps it on the negative happenings around you.
From today, say no to worry and live a peaceful life that even money cannot afford. Let your satisfaction come from within, knowing that God really cares about you.
