Desperation breeds either worry or worship. We always have a choice.
Worship over worry is the better way! Choose worship and prayer over worry.
No, it’s not easy! But it works! Usually what’s harder and takes more discipline and an act of faith is always harder. That’s why so many of us are worriers instead of worshipers, prayers & trusters 🙄 – that’s probably not a word (?), but it fits.
Do not worry about anything!
Worship God thru everything!
Pray constantly and about everything!
Lord, help us practice what what we say we believe.🙏 We aren’t blessed by what we know, but we are BLESSED and live victoriously as we PRACTICE the Truth we say we know. We are blessed when we hear and obey, not when we hear and keep doing things our own way.
John 13:17 If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them. #wordsofJesus
(Also see Isaiah 1:19; James 1:22)
Philippians 4:6-7 The Message:
Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Psalm 34:6-9 The Message:
When I was desperate, I called out, and God got me out of a tight spot. God’s angel sets up a circle of protection around us while we pray. Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see— how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him. Worship God if you want the best; worship opens doors to all his goodness.
