Word For Today -Living A Worry Free Life.

I love Philippians 4:6-7. Hmmmm! I worry at-times. Who doesn't?! It's part of human nature. But the Lord who always knows best says that we should not worry. 


Why? Because He is in control. In other words, worrying when God has instructed us not to is an act of faithlessness.

It is difficult to live a worry-free life but it is very possible to do so because with God all things are possible.

Please note: When God tells us to do something, He doesn't expect us to do it on our own. He wants you to get Him involved. Doing God's Word with God is a sure way that keeps you from struggling to do that thing.


The reason why most Christians still struggle with sin (eg sexual immorality)is because they are still trying to obey God with their feeble strength. At the end of the day when they fail, they see the life of righteousness as an impossible feat.It is impossible to obey God's Word on your own. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you. It is not your ability but His ability in you.

Sorry I digressed.Lol. Back to what I was saying-


In this period of recession for example, we worry about money, where will our next meal come from, no jobs, no children, no one to marry, no friends...so many things, but does it make sense that we worry over things that we have absolutely no power to bring to pass?

Okay, you agree that worry brings sadness and depression to your spirit and that worrying from now till forever achieves nothing, right? Good.


When I start getting worried, I deliberately take these steps and they help get rid of my worry-bout and I know if you apply it, it will get rid of yours too.


1. Defocus

The more you focus on those problems, the heavier your worries become. So why don't you stop thinking on them and do the next thing I'm about to show you,


2. Rewind and remember


Focus rather on what God has done for you. This has helped me a lot really.

I go back in time and start recounting God's goodness to me up until that moment. Believe me, it's refreshing.

Cast your mind back to how God had led you through each stage of your life; remember how you were at the point of death and God delivered you, how He saved you from that accident, healed that sickness, gave you that admission, you can inhale and exhale, abi?

Do you know how much it would have cost you to be able to do that with aid in the hospital? Woah! Right now God is saving you millions of naira just because you are strong and healthy!

Just remember His goodness and don't forget them, then step up and do this next thing,


3. Thank God


Yes! Thank God for everything He has done for you. Burst out in praises to Him and thank your heart out for those little little things He did for you plus the big big ones.

You are where you now because He made it possible. Thank Him for even those seemingly unanswered prayers. Lol. Yeah, I do that.

My people say "Etoo dike na nke o mere eme omekwa ozo" (When you praise a warrior for what he had done he will do another).

Put on the lifestyle of thanksgiving and thank God for every single blessing. Chai, human beings forget so easily! Don't you think that God who took you through your past is faithful to take you through now? 



4. Pray about everything


Do not worry about anything but pray about everything!(Philippians 4:6) Pray about that situation. Yes, you have been praying but it's seems not be be working? Keep praying. Keep PUSHing.

Now that's work. This is where our faith is tried but the trial of our faith makes you a better Christian after you have passed through it and stood (James 1:3-4).

God wants us to live, not by the weakness of our human fallen nature but by the grace He has given us through Jesus.So when next tiny bits of worry steal into your heart, CHOOSE to stay worry free by doing the needful.

'Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.'

Philippians 4:6-7

Guess I need the injunction more than every other person.

Here is my prayer "May God give us the Serenity to accept things we can't change and the will to change the things we can. And for the Grace for us to know the difference between the two'

I won't lie though because I am going through some difficult times in my life right now, I know and I have faith that it's only God Almighty that can see me through. One thing that has been keeping me going is that I haven't lost my faith in God.
