Don't Worry (Modern Talking song)


Why Do You Worry About Money? (Matthew 6:24-28)

Today, as this question entered into my mind and I sit and watched the various news programs discussing our Nations debt, and the trillions of dollars that we now owe, the question for our leaders is are they worrying about fixing the problem and getting our debt under control.  Are we as a people worrying about the monies we do not have in our own bank account.  As I studied Jesus word in Matthew, when He asked the question, “Why worry,” it moved me to ask this next question, is there ever a cause to worry?  If that question was asked of you today, most people would answer in the affirmative.  I worry about my children; I worry about my parents; I worry about my job; I worry about paying my rent; I worry about getting sick.  This list of why people worry can go on and on.  However, is there ever a legitimate reason for people to worry about such things?  Most people would say, “If I don’t worry about them, who else will?”  Moreover, they would be right.  Should you worry about paying your bills since they are your responsibility?  In addition, if you choose not to pay them, your wages would be garnished and you would be taken into court.  But still, is there a reason to worry about such things when you know that worrying will not solve the problem of getting your bills paid and will cause a greater amount of stress in your life.  This can lead to further added pressure of stress.  You are opening yourself up for problems relating to your health.  Mr. Webster defines the word stress as, “a physical, chemical, or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension and may be a factor in disease causation.  He further states that the mental tension resulting from stress tends to alter an existent equilibrium.

Have you ever noticed that when you are worrying about a problem, it seems hard for you to find an answer to the problem?  Then there is the problem of headaches and other physical elements that always seem to creep in.  Your nerves seem to be on edge at all times.  It becomes hard for you to get along with your spouse, your children and others around you.  You seem to make stupid mistakes that you otherwise would not make.  Nothing you do seems to go right, when you know that things should be running very smoothly for you, but now everything seems to be in disarray.  You continue to worry and question yourself about when is it ever going to end.

For some people, worrying never ends.  For others it comes to a very quick and in most cases a very unpleasant end.  Those are the ones that commit suicide because they can’t seem to find a way out of worrying about their problems.  If worrying brings about all these unnecessary and complicated steps in your life, then why are you still worrying about things in your life.  Worrying has never solved a problem.  It has never earned you any money, nor paid your bills or given you good health.  In short, worrying tells us that we should pray for our enemy.  So instead of you worrying about the problem, you should be praying about the problem.  Put it in God’s hands.  He is the only one that can solve it for you and will not ask you for anything in return.

Jesus taught us that if we do not know God, then worrying about things in life is our only recourse.  When God has not touched our lives, we will run after life’s necessities (that is, concentrate our efforts on obtaining them), and in the process we will become anxious and distressed.  We must learn to trust God to meet our every need.  Listen to what Matthews has to say about our heavenly Father; “You can’t worship two gods at once. Loving one god, you’ll end up hating the other. Adoration of one feeds contempt for the other. You cannot worship God and Money both.

If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.

“Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.”  (Matthew 6:24-28 MSG).

When we learn to trust God to meet our every need, we can overcome the problem of worry.  Trusting God is a test of our faith.  We will say we have faith.  Then when the problems in our lives arise, we resort to worry.  The problems are just a measure of our faith.  Paul says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  (Phil. 4:6).  Trusting God can bring you an unknown amount of joy that no amount of worrying can ever replace.  “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Phil: 4-7)

I say to you, the next time a problem arises in your life, instead of worrying about it, pray about it.  Let prayer become your weapon of choice.  If you want to defeat your number one enemy, go to God in prayer.  However, go to God with an honest and sincere prayer, having faith that when you go to him, he will surely take care of your problem.  Once you take it to God in prayer, leave it there.  He may not act on your problem when you want him to, he is never late and God is always on time.  Then why worry?

May God continue to bless each one of you? Today I minister to you from a position of peace, power, purpose and prosperity in Jesus name. I remain Pastor Davis/Master Teacher.

  20. Your post made me recall a conversation I had years ago with a lady that was well known for volunteering. She headed every committee in the church practically. One day I was at a nursing home with her to do some volunteer work. As we passed by the flowers on the nurses’ desk she commented on their beauty. I scowled and said I hated the funeral flowers that people sent to the hospital where I worked. They were vivid reminders of how we couldn’t save someone. She turned to me and said in a gentle voice, “oh my dear one, do not think that YOU are so powerful. You may be an instrument but there is a power much bigger than you that decides these things.” Since that day I have worried about things much less and realized how little things like money matter. Thank you for your words.

    Excellent point, I think that until we learn the true meaning of what it is to have a relationship with Christ we will worry . Worries that are not necessary if we learn to trust and obey his teachings. It is a growth process but you must be willing to humble and submit your life to The Lord. The rewards of peace overshadows any problems you may face. Through confidence you know that God will do just as he promised. Lamentations 3: When life is heavy and hard to take, go off by yourself. Enter the silence. Bow down in prayer. Don’t ask questions: wait for hope to appear. Don’t worry he knows about everything in our lives. Thank you for the encouraging points here. May God continue to inspire your writings.
