Anchored Scriptures: Proverbs 12:25, Matthew 6:25-34, Philippians 4:6
We are looking at what I call ‘The Anatomy of Worry’. Worry is a life stealer. Worry is a killer. Worry is one of the greatest problems confronting mankind. A lot of people are worried about one thing or the other, and killing themselves with worry.
Worry is a monster that saps our joy.
Worry is carrying profit less weight on your mind.Worry is one of the greatest sources of human suffering and diseases.But beloved, worry is a choice; a very very poor choice. You can decide to be, like the Bible says ‘be careful for nothing’; you can decide to be careful for nothing.
Worry is fear. Worry is a peace killer. You are looking for something to kill peace? It is worry. It is enjoying a crisis, before the crisis even happened.
Worry is anything that drains your tank of joy. I pray that the enemy will not be able to drain your tank of joy, in the name of Jesus! Worry is anything that frightens you, and torments you; and put a heavy weight on your mind. Worry is anything that agitates you and keeps you awake when you should be asleep. And anyone going through that kind of situation, the Lord will deliver you today in the name of Jesus!
Worry is anticipating the negative. Worry is an emotion. Worry is an attitude.
Worry is an act of will, you may decide to stop getting worried.Worry is actually a sin of not believing God enough.Worry is lack of faith.Worry is mental activity of contemplating evil outcomes.
Worry is mental paralyzation. You must decide that you will not allow your mental life to paralyze.
Worry is satan’s joy killer. Worry is an inner sensation that something dreadful, something terrible is about to happen. An apprehension, an uneasiness; that stems from anticipation of danger.
Worry is nervous frustration.Worry is secreting internal acid to destroy the internal system.Worry is a state of mind based on fear.
Worry is a circle of destructive thoughts, roaming around.Worry is that chain that hurts the mind.Worry is that which brings out the umbrella, when it’s not even raining. Are you a candidate of worry? Have you allowed worry and anxiety to get the better of you? You better change, you better repent. The Bible says ‘that all things work together for good, to those who love God; and those who are appointed according to His purpose’.
Worry is interest paid in advance, by those borrow trouble.Worry is a sustained form of fear, caused by many things.Worry is interest paid on trouble, a salary advance before it is even due.Worry is a personally constructed cross. It’s not a cross that Jesus asked you to bear, but a cross that you constructed by yourself.
I pray that every arrow of anxiety, every arrow of worry fired against you; shall backfire in the name of Jesus!
Worry is an appetite robber. It keeps you away from feeding yourself properly. Worry divides your mind, between that which is useful; and that which is damaging and destructive.Worry is breaking the flow of creative energy into your life. This is a very very serious trouble, very serious problem.
As a believer, you should be careful.
‘Heaviness in the heart of man, maketh it stoop; but a good word maketh it glad’. Are you listening to me, and the enemy is caging you with anxiety and worry? Make up your mind, that today is the expiry date; it won’t go beyond today.
When we worry beloved, we believe more in our problems than in God’s promises.Do you believe in God’s promises? Then worry must go.
When worry comes in, fear follows. Once fear is allowed to stay, faith jumps out. But when faith comes in, worry and fear jumps out.
Worry is actually useless, senseless and useless.Worry is salary advance from the enemy. Worry is as useless as you trying to save a saw dusty. Because whether, we like it or not; in every life, a little bit of rain of trouble will fall. But when you worry, you double that trouble.
Worry is needless, worry is useless.
Worry is dangerous. Worry is blind
Worry will make you old before your time, it will kill you before your time.
Worry will demolish everything God wants to do in your life.
Close your eyes where you are, and repent from every sin of worry and anxiety. Tell the Lord to forgive you from every sin of worry and anxiety. Pray like this, “Father, in areas where I have been worried and anxious, and have not allowed my faith to take control; Father forgive me, in the name of Jesus!
Worry has a type of gravity, which pulls us from the high places of life; and you must refuse to be pulled from those high places of life. Worry takes the joy out of life. Worry is pointless. Worriers always die young. Worry can drive a man into what he should not be driven to. Worry can hinder your sleep.Worry accomplishes nothing.Worry dries up and makes us ineffective. So worry beloved, is a waste of time. It damages your health and it reveals a deep lack of faith.
Worry affect relationships. Worry is like trying to put the toothpaste back into the tube. So, it is something you should really not engage in. Worry is like trying to saw through saw dust. It is already saw dust, but you’re trying to saw through it. That is what worry is.
Worry can threaten your lives spiritually. It can block your view of God. Worry is the fruit of the divided heart and those who live in worry invite death in a hurry.
The enemy will not kill you before your time in the name of Jesus!
Worry empties today of its strength. Nothing wastes the body like worry,
Worry affects the circulatory system, the glands and the nervous system. So be very very careful. When somebody is so worried, he will consume tomorrow; worrying about yesterday. Today is the tomorrow we worried yesterday.
Worry grows bigger, when we allow it to grow bigger. A 100 fold of worry, will not bring one respite of relief.
This is a very serious situation. I pray that the Almighty will arise for your sake, and the arrows of anxiety and worry will backfire totally, in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
He who fears, he shall suffer; already suffers what he fears. When we regret our yesterday, and worry about tomorrow; we are welcoming two robbers.
Worry is a very stubborn habit. But the truth is what worries you, masters you.
Will you allow worry to cage you? I hope not. Will you allow the enemy to use worry to shorten your life? I hope not. Worrying about the problems of tomorrow, creates unhappiness for today. If you worry about yesterday’s failures, then today’s successes will be few. Perpetual worrying will get you to a place ahead of time, and that place is the cemetery.
Worry breeds worry.Worry is a clever grave digger. It divides a mind, it divides your system.The Bible tells us, that we should be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication; with thanksgiving, we should let our requests be known unto God.
So like I have been telling you, worry is a joy killer.
