It is our belief in Christ Chapel that it is up to the Church to pray God’s will into the earth because Jesus says: “I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of heaven”. (Matthew 16:18-19). Jesus has given us the authority to release His will on earth through prayer.
Therefore I say stop being perpetually anxious and worried about your life, what you shall eat, shall drink……….” Matt 6:24 (amp)
“Humble yourself therefore under the mighty hand of God that he might exalt you in due time: casting your care upon him; for he careth for you.” 1 Peter 5:6,7
Worry comes because you have spoken earlier on-a contrary word about a situation, you have created a violation in the realm of the spirit. The violation you have made in the realm of the spirit is what birth worry and brings worry into your life.
God describes humility as casting your care (1 Peter 5: 6,7) which means that carrying your cares is Worry. That is why a worrying heart is against the Lord. So every time you are worrying , you are wearing pride. Worry is pride and pride is sin against God.
“……he that is perverse in his speech and is a [self confident] fool’ Prov.19:1 amp
God sees you has being proud if you are worrying because He says – ‘this person thinks he can make things happen that’s why he cannot leave it in my hands’. If you cannot leave things in God’s hands that means you are confident in your own ability to make it happen. God is saying to you, one of the reasons why you are worrying is that you are proud. So worry comes out of self confidence so to speak- whatever is the source of your self confidence becomes an instrument of pride in your life against God and whether realize it or not out of that flows that you set your self up for worry and you set yourself up for sin against God.
The last thing that makes you to worry is a lack of revelation of the love of God for you. A lack of revelation of your worth before God will make you worry. Where there is no revelation of love there is no understanding of your value there will be no confidence that you would be taken care of.
“But if God so clothes the grass of the field which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith” Matthew 6:30
Get rid of worry!
