It’s time for honesty! Today, I am worried about __________ and __________ and __________ and __________. OK, now that you dumped your worries onto these blanks, what do you do? Because when you dump a worry from a soul, it leaves a vacancy in its place. So what do we fill in worry’s place so it doesn’t creep back in? In Philippians 4:6-8, Paul gives us worry-re-placers! Paul tells us to replace worry with “truth,” like, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6) or replace worry with something “noble,“ like, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35) or something “right,” like “I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10) or something “lovely” like, “I have loved you with an everlasting love.” (Jeremiah 31:3) or something “admirable,” like, “Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely.” (Psalm 112:5) or something “excellent,” like, “So I will save you, and you will be a blessing.” (Zechariah 8:13) or something “praiseworthy,” like “You believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.” (1 Peter 1:8). Many of us (not by choice) have become victims of worry. But we do not have to stay victims of worry. If we have God in our lives, we have come-backs in our lineage. Worry is a condition but it is not part of God’s creation. I pray for you…that you and God partner up, begin to dump the worry and fill in its space the goodness of God’s substance!
