Why Worry…..

8645
When I first met Ron he said I would worry if I had nothing to worry about and added you know Anne, the things you worried about yesterday never happened, yes I said that is because worry works. (an oldie but goodie)7110
But seriously, people will say to you don’t worry, don’t get angry, don’t be depressed, don’t fear or have doubts, don’t be sad,  perhaps you can think of others, for me it was confusion and then just in case you have doubts about the evil in expressing these emotions, they give you Scripture that they think confirms what they are sharing, some will even tell you they are sin and so you are weighed down with guilt.

8645Scripture can uplift or reveal our need to change and convict us of what is not in line with God’s guidelines and this is to help us not to condemn us but it is our choice if we listen and obey or disobey and we reap what we sow good and bad.

8645Is laughing sin, is being excited sin, is feeling Joy sin, of course not, our emotions are God-given, the pleasant  ones we enjoy,  the painful ones are a warning that something is wrong, just the same as  physical pain…. even guilt is a warning that we are in need of help.

8645God wants us to resolve these feelings not repress them and then pretend to be Happy Clappy, and  wear a mask , when we do we can’t be real and we don’t believe others are.
It is not sin to express justifiable anger when others hurt us, Jesus did, Paul did and so did others in Scripture. Satan will put us to the test, others will hurt us but we remember our Abba Father is wanting to help us not condemn us.

8645

So if we are angry and have negative emotions, we don’t pretend we haven’t or they may lead to sin and God tells us not to sin in our anger but to recognise what is causing it, so it does not lead to evil which is how Satan plans it to do by using others to provoke us.
8645

We take our negative emotions to Jesus, He knows they are a heavy burden, He takes them off our Shoulders so we can work through them with Him.

    • Thanks Katherine for visiting and for all the interest you have shown in our Blog, no need to apologise, I’m still learning about Hebrew and Greek words.

      Rhema is from the Greek word rhematos to express a Scripture from The Lord that touches our heart, through the empowering of The Holy Spirit.

      Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (rhematos Christou)”

      Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word (rhema) that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

      Christian Love – Anne.

    It’s very true that we not only repress our own negative emotions, we also try to teach others the same. Emotions–all of them–serve a purpose. Good post. Angie

      Yes Angie true, Anne is a very passionate person, not afraid to show emotion, I’m much more reserved but after 30 years it’s rubbing off to some degree and your right it is a blessing, to have the freedom to say I love you is priceless.

      Blessings

    Thank you Anne! I absolutely “LOVE IT” when the Lord sends people into my life who can “open my [spiritual] mail”. There are no boundaries and distance too far for Him. His timing [and your post Anne] are perfect for my today. Thank You Yeshua… I BELIEVE! And PLEASE LORD… HELP my UNBELIEF!!!

    GOD BLESSES… Just ask Him!

      Hi Julie, you are also a blessing and an answer to prayer, a heart that is teachable is like gold and a delight to The Lord, our only Teacher, as you walk in His wisdom by the empowering of the Holy Spirit, many things will start to fall in place for you and you will be greatly assured and blessed. 1Corinthians2:9-16

      Thank you for visiting Julie, I look forward to sharing with you again, I’m joined up with you now so I will receive your Posts but in case I have Blog problems again, I will check from time to time.

      Christian Love Anne.

        Anne… your words are music to my ears. I have been praying to the Lord for a new, a fresh song with Him. To be holy for He is holy; not because He makes me but because I would so love to. And when I pray… He reassures me with the hope of “new linen”.
        Where there is ” beauty for ashes,
        The oil of joy for mourning,
        The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
        That they [we] may be called trees of righteousness,
        The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” [Isaiah 61]

        Your words serve as confirmation to me and oh how it blesses my soul. My life appears to be in total ruins to others who know my situation, but I must say with total confidence [in Christ]… that I live extravagantly where it matters most [in Christ]. 🙂

        Thank you again my friend in Christ!

    I know worry well, Anne, as Ron said it is often the first base we run to when in difficulty. Do you think worry shows a lack of trust and faith in God to take care of us?

      Hi Sis, worry is not a sin, it is an emotion, that comes from fear of something or someone and this produces lack of Trust in that person, God reassures us, He does not condemn us for it, He knows that until we are perfected in Love we will worry and have fear, this is why we must put our flesh to death by choosing to walk in the fruit of The Spirit by His empowering .

      1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

      If we think someone is going to hurt us no matter how much we sugar coat it even saying it is for our own good, in our heart we will have fear and lack of Trust in that Person. God can be Trusted His plans for us are good not evil, He does not force us to Love and Trust Him but He shows us He can be Trusted, and so we Love Him ….when we ask we receive.

      Christian Love Anne

    True as you say Anne, worry becomes the first base we touch when we have things go wrong. Seems so hard not to, yet Jesus tells us not to worry and He then reasures us why we don’t have to. Sometimes in our flesh we can be exactly like the disciples were before Pentecost at times, slow to understand. True wisdom is of God not man and when He gives it to us it’s real as the Bible will confirm.

    Blessing

      Hi Love, yes very true and it’s when we doubt that we or others have God’s wisdom having asked for it that we have problems understanding His Truth, were also saying God does not keep His promises.

          You have much words of wisdom John and yes I also feel a sadness as well when others put on a happy face all the time . Another lie is … Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone, perhaps true in a wordly way but as the Body of Christ we are to carry each others burdens and cry with each other as well as rejoice together.

          Jesus did not say come to me all you who are Happy Clappy or “happy happy joy joy” but all those who are heavy burdened and if we are God’s heart children Satan will make sure we suffer hardship as he tests our faith, as you said John … faking it just doesen’t work.

          Thanks for visiting again – Christian Love Anne.
