We gain nothing by worrying

Fear and worry do not help us. They only make life more difficult and they rob us of a full life.

Luke 12: 25 – 26 And besides, what’s the use of worrying? What good does it do? Will it add a single day to your life? Of course not! And if worry can’t even do such little things as that, what’s the use of worrying over bigger things? 

Sometimes we entertain worry and fear. We should not do this!

Luke 12: 22 – 24 Then turning to His disciples He said, “Don’t worry about whether you have enough food to eat or clothes to wear. For life consists of far more than food and clothes. Look at the ravens—they don’t plant or harvest or have barns to store away their food, and yet they get along all right – for God feeds them. And you are far more valuable to Him than any birds!

If God is with us we do not need to fear.

Psalm 23:4  I will fear no evil, for you are with me.
1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear.

God’s love within us has the power to remove and drive out our fears.  Fear is such a stronghold in our lives that it needs to be driven out.  We must deal with fear ruthlessly.  Don’t give in to fear and give it a foothold in your life.

Romans 8:31 What can we ever say to such wonderful things as these? If God is on our side, who can ever be against us?
