THE MIND OF CHRIST, TRUSTING THE LORD.

KEY SCRIPTURE: Prov. 3:5 KJV” Trust in the LORD with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.”

Worrying can be very destructive. It can isolate you from everyone and everything that goes on around you. Worrying is always a severer problem than the problem that initiated it. Worrying attacks the two vital organs that make living possible. These are your heart and (brain)mind. This is the reason God said when you do not worry but present your issue to God in prayer, the peace of God that passes understanding, would guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus Phil 4:6, 7. The preceding verse, says, Do not be anxious. That is a command. Decide to obey it.

We must trust the Lord at all times. The scriptures is full of assuring statements that should comfort our hearts and encourage us to leave all matters in His mighty hands. Worry seriously robs us of God’s help. God our Father is not a man. The only means for us to receive anything He wishes to give us is by faith. Faith is the sixth sense that relates to God and can receive from Him.

The heart of God’s love and care toward us is stronger than that of our earthly fathers. Please consider the following scriptures: Luke 11:11-13 KJV If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he asks a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? Our earthly parents are men, and so have the potential for evil, yet they would do everything to provide for us, how much God, the one who is perfectly good?

Please consider the following verse too, Rom 8:32 KJV “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” If God gave Jesus to us, what can’t he do for us. The truth is HE HAS ALREADY DONE OR GIVEN ALL THINGS TO US. Stop worrying and start thanking Him.

CONFESSION.

Thank you, heavenly father, for your eternal goodness towards all men, and me in particular. I have no need or want that is beyond your ability to provide. Your Word says all things are mine and all your promises are yes in Christ. I would not be worried about anything. Thank you Lord for your peace which passes all understanding.
