In the world that we live in today there is a tendency to worry over how to pay your phone bills, rent, mortgage or the possibility of being evicted and repossession of your property because of the inability to meet up with payments, You could have received a final warning from the bailiffs to pay your bill. You are anxious, fretting over all this issues of life. The questions that crops out of your mind is: how am I going to pay all these bills when I am unemployed? Where do I go to for help? Is this how I would continue living my life from hand to mouth?
My answer to you today is dont worry be joyful. Worrying over issues kills, it is a slow deadly diseases that takes control of your mind, body and immune system slowly becomes weak. The white blood cells in your body are unable to defend or attack nevertheless perform their roles. It causes high blood pressure, heart attack, depression, arthritis and so on. So why worry when the consequences of worrying over the day to day problems is overwhelming
The Lord is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him. Nahum 1:7
Worry causes you to be anxious, troubled, stressed out and unnecessarily fearful. My question is to you is excessive thinking the solution or added weight on your shoulders? Would worries pay the bills? So why don’t you take it one day at a time with Jesus. The Lord’s prayers says gives us this day our daily bread (Matthew 6:11). Let your focus be on today and let tomorrow be planned out. We are more precious than the birds that does not worry about what to eat or wear but our Heavenly Father feeds them, how much more we His precious Sons and Daughters who has inheritances in His kingdom.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; Philippians 4:6
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things Philippians 4:8.
Dont worry be joyful. When you the Joy of the Lord is your stronghold nothing whatsoever can weigh you down. They can try but they would not succeed because He is the pillar that holds your life. Money and the pleasures of the world can buy you happiness but everlasting joy comes from the Lord God.
MY PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY

I ask Heavenly Father that you release everlasting joy into the hearts of your Sons and Daughters as they persevere through it all.
