Refocus, Revision, Revive, and Thrive
Welcome to Our God Is Faithful Ministries. Jesus Loves you!
You are very special and the apple of His eye.
Let us rejoice and be glad for this is the day the Lord hath made.
God is leading us and guiding us each and everyday.
We are led by the Holy Spirit and not by the flesh. The flesh is carnality.
Walking in the spirit brings life.
I want to talk about worry!
Many of you have dealt with unnecessary worry in your life.
Many of you are still battling daily with worry. Why?
One might ask why I would be such a worry wart about everything when the word of God tells me to "be anxious for nothing?"
Why would I think negative thoughts in which lead to worry and fear?
Have you asked yourself these questions?
If so think about these questions:
Do you really believe that God wants you to worry about everything?
Is worrying effecting how you handle things?
Are you trusting God?
Do you really think that God wants you to worry?
Is worrying changing anything in your life?
What does the word of God say about it?
Psalm 37 tells us to "Worry Not or Fret Not"
Life is precious don't waste it by worrying about everything?
I like what I heard from someone awhile back. I don't need to know everything , having said that when you worry about something "Is it because you feel you need to know what is going on? " Ok for an example?
You lose your job and you start to worry about finding another one? You start to take thought by saying "Oh will I every find a job, or Will I ever find another good paying job?" And for days ,weeks , months it bothers you and you worry about it constantly.You have done everything you know to do, by applying for jobs and going out to look for one. But when the day is done you come home still fretting? Let me ask you this? Did you cast this care of yours upon the Lord? He tells us to cast all of our care upon him for he cares for us? 1 Peter 5:7 Or did you go home and worry,think negitive, speak negitive, toss and turn and not sleep and then talk about it constantly in a negative way. Psalm 37: Fret not. You must surrender it to God and trust him to meet all of your needs! AMENLet me ask you when you did all this (worrying and complaining) was it able to help you and get the job! I would assume it did not. Probably it didn't change a thing except stressing your mind and body out and others around you.
You have to take care of your mind and body. We are the temple of God and the Holy Spirit dwells in us. And you know the Holy Spirit will lead you and guide you unto all truth. God will give you wisdom and direction if you have an ear to hear.
How do we know when someone is not listening to us when we speak to them?
Because they are not paying attention to you they are off day dreaming about something else.
I believe we've all been there and done that. If you're too busy worrying and talking nonsense out of your mouth you will not hear that "Still small voice of God leading you".
If you're speaking negative words? How can you be speaking negivitve words and really hear from God ? You can't.
So envision this "You're worrying and speaking negative?" Where is that getting you? No way fast! AMEN
The bible tells us "as a man thinketh so is he." Proverbs 23:7
If you are focusing on what you see in the natural and not focusing on the word of God and the supernatural you may miss out on what God is showing you and speaking to you!
Sometimes you may feel that you have to see it before you believe it!
Listen "Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen!: Hebrews 11:1
Do you really understand what faith is? Faith is believing even when you don't see it with your natural eyes. We see that alot of times people fear something that hasn't even happened and they worry about it as if it already happened.
Let go Let God! His perfect love cast out all fear.
Fear causes bondage. Those in fear are subject to bondage. Perfect love cast out fear. 1 John 4;
"You have not received the spirit of fear, but of power love and a sound mind." 2 Tim 1:7
Our mind is not sound when we are worrying about everything. It is easy to get off track and worry about this and that . I have known what it is like to worry and I have known what it is like to be peaceful. I choose to be peaceful any day over worrying. As I said early it doesn't change anything.
What will change your circumstance?
God can change it, when you learn to cast all of your care upon him and walk by faith trusting him and committing all your ways unto him, not leaning to your own understanding.
When you worry ask yourself:
Am I trusting God in this situation?
Have I gave it all to God?
You may feel something bad is going to happen or has happened?
One person made these comments about worry.Over the span of my lifetime, worrying accounts for hours and hours of invaluable time that I'll never get back. So, I have decided that I'd like to spend my time more wisely and more enjoyably. If you're not convinced yet to give up your worrying, Worrying Accomplishes Absolutely Nothing. I don't know about you, but I don't have any time to waste these days. And worrying is a waste of very precious time. Worrying won't help you solve a problem or bring about a solution, so why waste your time and energy on it?
Surrender everything to God in prayer.Refocus your thoughts when you start to worry,and replace it with good thoughts, the word of God.
Now it is important that you do replace your thoughts of worry with good thoughts, and most importantly with the word of God.
Guard your mouth! "As a man thinketh so is he"
Keep your thoughts in check with the word of God.
Think about good things.
Remember you take the thought by saying it. What are you giving attention to and has it captured your thoughts? Sometimes we have well meaning friends around us that can be negative and they try to drag you down into their negative conversation. "Hurt people, Hurt people"
We need to walk by faith and stay focused, no matter what.
Don't you want to accomplish more in your life instead of worrying everyday.
Just think of how much more peace you will have, when you stop worrying about everything.
Have you even tried going a day or even a week without worrying? Wow for some that is a stretch. Some people are addicted to worry.
If their not worrying they are worried because they are not worrying and they feel that they must find something to worry about.
Refocus Revision and Be Revived and Thrive.
Divert you attention away from worrying and focus on God and his word: Stop focusing on your problem by worrying about it.
An act of revising: correct or improve revise. Make changes by choosing to walk by faith trusting God.
To restore to consciousness or life 2 : to restore from a depressed, inactive, or unused state : bring back 3 : to renew in the mind or memory. God wants you restored. What the enemy meant for harm God will turn it around for you good! Do you believe it? Be revived in your mind, renew your mind with the word of God. Seek him. Learn of him. Revival starts with one person.
Revive us: Psalm 85:6
To grow vigorously : Flourish 2 : to gain in wealth or possessions :Prosper3 : to progress toward or realize a goal despite or because of circumstances often. We must be growing in our walk with the Lord. Strong meat belongs to those who love the Lord. 5 I like the part we just read to progress toward or realize a goal despite or because of circumstances. Let us thrive!
