Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done - Phil. 4:6 Whenever you feel a pull into getting worried, know that the devil is up to draining and distorting your emotions. The devil's mission is to stir you to magnify unpleasant situations beyond the power of God. And if your knowledge of God and His ways is shallow, worry can take a heavy toll on your emotional well being, because the devil would attempt to talk you out of trusting in God. Hence, you need to forge a close bond with God and put your trust in Him, to get you unstuck from every unpleasant situations. It is no doubt that the life of the righteous is often littered with many afflictions. The devil would most often want you to ponder and see with half an eye why God could be unfair at some points while attempting to undermine the faithfulness of God in your life. Then you get pulled into a conversation with your soul. In Psalm 41, when you consider the account of the Psalmist, he said, "Why are you cast down oh my soul, why are you disquiet within me?" But when he couldn't put a finger on why his soul should be perturbed, knowing full well that God is ever faithful; he got off his worry and found solace in God. Hence, before worrying drains your spiritual chemistry, keep it at bay; declare it as an unwanted guest, which is on a mission to steal your rest. Worrying, in and of itself, is parasitic to the human soul. And if you have a reputation for getting worried over petty things and people are beginning to see you as a worrywart, it's high time to make bold and speak to Mr. Worry that it has overstayed its welcome. This would certainly get worry off your mind, because you have found your level in Christ, who is the the Prince of Peace. With Jesus on your side, you have a shoulder to cry on. You can give away everything that gets you unsettled and enjoy His peace in return. He knows how to calm the storm and end all your struggles in weathering the crises you might have been going through. And when you pray and praise Him, you can be certain that victory is sure. As you pin your faith on God's word, praying to Him and singing His praise, may He keep you from terror, fear, worry and every pleasant situations in Jesus name
