God gave me a message to share today. I believe it is a real important one to all who struggle with a belief of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

I was trying to help a friend that worries a lot, by explaining to her that worrying only means that your not  putting your trust in the Lord. This person said, well God gave us free will. I said, yes he does. Its His way to see if we come to him. But if you don’t believe that Jesus is God’s Son, and that he died so our sins would be forgiven, then your blessing and grace, and your prayers are not going to be answered. I said it is that simple. Put your worries and trust in the Lord.

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by talking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? (Matthew 6:25-27).

Take therefore no thought for the morrow; for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matthew 6:34).

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30)

And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? (Luke 12:25).

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27).

If you believe in our Lord, Jesus Christ, you will have the Holy Spirit inside of you, helping you to make the correct decisions. I, myself, at times make the same mistake. Then I realize that my faith isn’t as strong at as it should be.  That’s when I start to read the word and things become clearer to me.

All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. (John 6:37).

No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. (John 6:44).

And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespass and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. (Ephesians 2:1-3).

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9).

4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior; 7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. (Titus 3:4-7).
