From Series: The Promises of God & Life Lessons Learned From the Bible
Break the chain of worry by living in God's promises.
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken—Psalm 55:22.
God promised that if you throw your cares: your anxieties, the things that are troubling you, your concerns, any uneasiness, your hardships, tribulations, sufferings, pains, sorrows, misery, and responsibilities, whatever it is that is concerning you, God says if you toss them His way—He'll take care of them. In other words, if you give them to Him, He’ll take care of them for you.
He does not want you to hold on to them trying to figure out what to do. Instead, He wants you to immediately get rid of them by giving them to Him.
God wants us to not be anxious about anything but instead in humility and gratitude speak to Him about them (Philippians 4:6).
When you do this part, this is what God will do—He will sustain you. He will support you, carry you, and bear that concern, worry, or problem for you. And while He is handling those issues, He will encourage you, help you, be your source of strength, and help you to keep going, while giving you peace and joy.
God will never let you remain shaken up, upset, disturbed, worried, frightened, alarmed, or dismayed. What He will do is put your mind at ease by removing fear and concern.
However, this promise comes with one stipulation and that is to trust Him to take care of your situations.
God has many promises for us, but to have those promises happen in your life you need to trust Him. What God says is already there, you just have to believe it is there to obtain them.
God wants you to watch and see what He will do for you if you only trust Him. Remember, our Creator is at the highest most powerful level, and why nothing is too hard for Him to do (Jeremiah 32:27).
Do You Have Trust Issues?
Trust is the key for God to help you in any situation, and this trust is something you will have to do on purpose and with intent until it becomes easy for you to do it.
Every obstacle you overcome that will tempt you to distrust God leads you to depend on God fully. When you look back at those barriers designed for you to fail but see how God brought you victory, it is evidence of what He can do.
Trusting God on purpose will leave proof in your life that He is able to be relied on. Trust may be hard to do for some people but when you trust in a reliable source like God, it will be worth it.
The opposite of anxiety, it is the tranquility that comes when the believer commits all their cares to God in prayer and worries about them no more. The full dimensions of God's love and care are beyond human comprehension (Ephesians 3:18-20). The NIV Study Bible, 10th Anniversary Edition
As you grow in faith in God you will learn to be content no matter the circumstance (Philippians 4:11).
Why are the promises of God important in our lives? They are what we need to maintain and remain in an upright position when we are faced with trouble.
God's promises are guarantees that will happen to us if we believe and obey. These are promises that are given to us that make us live a life of total bliss and freedom. Therefore, we should never act or respond in the same way others do because we have assurances for our lives and future.
These promises are for everyone who is a child of God, and God also makes additional promises that is customize and personalized specifically for you. When you begin a relationship with God you will then know those personalized promises.
In Philippians 4:8 Paul understood the influence of our thoughts on our lives, and when you worry it will ultimately affect your thinking, behavior, and life. Therefore, knowing God's promises will help you know what to do anytime you become worried.
Worry is mentally crippling, damaging, and dangerous to your health. But now you know you can go to Jesus so he can give you peace and free you from worry.
"Come to me, all you who are weary ( tired ) and burdened ( troubled, worried ), and I will give you rest ( peace, relaxation, take the burden off, relieve from something that causes anxiety and stress ). Take my yoke upon you ( take what I give you instead ) and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls ( mind, emotions, emotional wholeness ). For my yoke is easy and my burden is light"—Matthew 11:28-30.
