James 2:12 (AMP
So speak and so act as [people should] who are to be judged under the law of liberty [the moral instruction given by Christ, especially about love].
There are specific things in the Word of God that are clearly forbidden by God. Worry is one of those things. God has made it clear that we are not to worry about anything or anybody. Worry is a sin. It is illegal to worry in the Kingdom of God.
• Not allowed by order of somebody or by law.
When we practice worrying we are actually operating in another kingdom, and inferior kingdom. Worry is a weapon that has its roots in the kingdom of darkness. Worry is a thief; it comes only to steal, kill and destroy. It is a sister to unbelief and a brother to fear. Worry is an enemy of love. It seeks to choke out loves power and drown its influence and progress. Worry is a deceptive, crafty, seducer, void of mercy. It will eat away at your godly excellence and bring to halt fruitful divine dreams, causing frustration and disappointment. Worry is a clear indicator someone is living a carnal Christian life. The scriptures warn us that to be carnal minded produces death not the abundant life. Worry always piggybacks; selfishness and pride.
In today’s society anxiety is very acceptable, often being pitied and nursed. However, make no mistake about it; anxiety is not a friend but rather a foe.
Jesus gave His life so that we could live the good life and experience God’s abundant mercy and favor. It is not the will of God that we be chained to a life of worry. You were not born to be a worrier but rather to live a life of peace. Worry will seek to dominate your life and infiltrate into your relationships and daily activities. However, you can stop it, by developing trust in God.
Matthew 6:25-27 (AMP)
Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life?
God forbids worry because He loves you. He has already made available to you freedom through His perfect law of liberty (The Bible).
Meditate on the above scripture and close the door to the thief of worry, today!
