The Greek word for worry is merimnaō and it means to be anxious. Did you know that anxiety disorder is considered a mental illness? Worry [anxiety] is the most common but unnamed addiction many within the body of Christ battle with everyday! Shout out to our creative ability to rationalize our way around it, we pass it off like it’s of little consequence. We even convince ourselves that it’s normal—we say to ourselves, “Well everybody does it, so it’s okay.” What an emotional drain! What a waste! It’s time we stopped our habit of worrying and replaced it with the God-given solution: trusting!
In the greatest sermon ever preach Jesus said in Matthew 6:34 (MSB),“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”
The author of Hebrews 13:8 reminds us that, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” So put your worry where your God is and remember what Paul reminded us to do in Phil 4:6-7, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Then you will experience God’s peace [rest], which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace [rest] will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
