Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life…
One of the most detrimental things to life is worry. Think about these questions for a moment. Has there ever been a time in your life where worrying helped you? Did worrying about anything ever bring resolve to the problem? The answer of course would have to be no. Then why do believers worry, especially when Jesus told us not to worry. Doing so means we are not obeying our Lord who told us not to worry.
The devil loves for believers to worry. In doing so they are disobeying what Jesus said, and where worry is present faith cannot work. The reason people worry is because they have not taken the time to master their thought life as taught in scripture. The battle ground for every person is in the mind. The devil knows if he can get you to take the wrong thoughts he can get you to worry. One translation of the above verse even says take no thought for your life. Worry means you have taken the wrong thought.
This is why we have the Word of God, which contains the knowledge of God (our weapons). You must learn to take every thought that comes that is contrary to what God’s Word says and cast it down by declaring “It is written”, and then speaking God’s Word. If you do not learn to do so you will lose the battle of the mind and can therefore be defeated by the devil. Stop taking thoughts contrary to God’s Word. Declare what His Word says every time such thoughts come and you can live worry free and win the battle of the mind.
