Day 14 – January 23 – “Do Not Worry and Rest In Jesus”

Do Not Worry and Rest In Jesus
“Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” Matthew 6:27
It’s hard for me to let it get into my heart and allow the love of God to free me from worrying, in fact, I can worry myself sick. The truth is that no amount of worrying can lengthen your life or add anything to your health. Instead, worrying robs you of sleep, health, and many good years. It is only when you are worry-free that God’s peace flows freely in you, no matter how big or small the issues are in your life.
I found that when you worry, you are believing that the devil has the power to make the attack in your life that God cannot protect you from, but when you refuse to worry, you are putting your faith in God. You have more confidence in God’s love and power working for you than in the devil’s ability to harm you!
When you refuse to worry and choose to rest in the finished work of Christ, you will experience the evidence of your blessing!
Today I pray: “Jesus help me fight against worrying no matter what is going on in my life and choose to rest in Your finished work and believe you have everything worked out in my life.”
When fear comes in my life, the thoughts begin to multiply, the feelings begin to growing inside of me until I really believe that the fear is happening to me.
I can literally worry myself sick!
