Worry Is Not Part of God’s Plan for Your Life
March 11, 2014
Key Verse: 2 Corinthians 5:7
We walk by faith, not by sight.
Some of the people who contract cancer do so because they worry about things when they should not.1 Why? Worry has never been a part of God’s plan for man. If you are a worrier, be careful. You can worry yourself right into a hospital bed.
Many worriers are chronically depressed. Depression causes your body to release harmful hormones; it also stops the release of things that your body uses to fight tumorous growths in your body. Sometimes worry stems from our lack of trust in God, which is revealed in the way we talk about our experiences and failures rather than about our expectations in Christ.
Do you get excited about what you do not see? James 5:14 tells us to call the elders of the church to pray over the sick and anoint them with oil in the name of Jesus. Why? Elders in the church should be mature enough to avoid worry and embrace faith so the Holy Ghost can flow through them. As a result, when they lay hands on you, the Holy Ghost moves through them and activates the healing power that already resides within you.
Put that old worrier to rest. Walk by faith and not by sight! The power is already in you.
Lord Jesus, I choose to believe Your promises concerning my healing through the stripes You bore on Your back. I believe the good report in Your Word, and I lay aside every evil report in the natural realm. Thank You for the prayer of unity and faith available through other believers and the leaders in the church.
