Living Worry Free

I’ve heard people say let go and let GOD. How do we do that?

“6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7 King James Version).

How do we know if we’ve truly let go? Let’s say we follow the formula in verse six and we take Paul’s advice and have no worries. He said be careful for nothing, or don’t worry about anything. Why? He says if we pray, ask GOD for what we need, give HIM thanks for what HE’s already done, is doing, and is about to do, that after that we will have peace. That’s how we know.

This is a peace that makes no sense for us to have. We should be a nervous wreck, pacing the floor, calling everybody, snapping at people, crying, biting fingernails, smoking, drinking, pulling our hair out, and all of that. Yet, instead we have this supernatural peace. We have a calmness about us while we are in the middle of the storm. We are walking on the water as Peter did because Jesus bid us to come to Him (Matthew 14:28-29). When did He do that? He did it through Paul when he told us not to worry but pray.

We prayed and Jesus told us to step out on faith, and that’s just what we did. No sooner had we taken one step, when His peace came down upon us. Jesus says it like this. “27 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 KJV).

See, a lot of times we think of obedience as doing something we don’t want to do, or that obeying will somehow deprive us of some perceived enjoyment. The verse in Philippians reminds us that obedience in this case brings us exactly what we were looking for and need, a solution to the problem and calmness during the storm. My my. Could we also apply this idea of obedience giving us what we really need and want to every situation in our lives? Absolutely.

King Saul wanted to remain king and stay in GOD’s good graces. Obedience would have gotten him exactly that, but because he decided to go against what GOD told him to do through the prophet Samuel, he had the kingdom stripped from his hands and the prophet explained it to him this way. “22 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.” (I Samuel 15:22 KJV).

Be encouraged, family. Obey GOD today. Give your worries to HIM. Let go through prayer. Pour your heart out to GOD. Leave nothing. Once you are emptied of all worry, then the promised peace will come.

“33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.” (Romans 15:33 KJV). It is so. May it be fulfilled.

How to be Saved

Romans 10: 9-13

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (KJV).

9 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. 11 As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” 12 Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. 13 For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (NLT).

Say the welcoming word to God—“Jesus is my Master”—embracing, body and soul, God’s work of doing in us what he did in raising Jesus from the dead. That’s it. You’re not “doing” anything; you’re simply calling out to God, trusting him to do it for you. That’s salvation. With your whole being you embrace God setting things right, and then you say it, right out loud: “God has set everything right between him and me!” 11-13 Scripture reassures us, “No one who trusts God like this—heart and soul—will ever regret it.” It’s exactly the same no matter what a person’s religious background may be: the same God for all of us, acting the same incredibly generous way to everyone who calls out for help. “Everyone who calls, ‘Help, God!’ gets help. (MSG).

Romans 5:8

8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (KJV)

8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (NLT)

It is your belief that saves you, family. If you believe, you will speak what you believe and not be ashamed or embarrassed to do so, whether you are alone or among others. Simply talk to GOD. Say aloud to God:

“I confess all my sin known and unknown, and ask You, GOD, to forgive me. I believe Jesus was born of a virgin, crucified, died for my sins, and rose from the dead. Jesus, come into my heart and make me new in You. Save me, Lord! Jesus, you are Lord. Be Lord over my life. Thank You, GOD for Your forgiveness. Thank You, Jesus, for making me Your own. Amen.”

You are now saved. You may not feel different or you may. Just know that the internal change is taking place once you uttered that prayer in faith. Day by day, you will begin to be transformed into whom GOD wants and created you to be. You will care more about the things of GOD than your own personal desires, and you will want to share the word of GOD when you have the opportunity. Begin to read your bible daily, and learn about GOD's will for your life. If you are not already a member of a local church, I encourage you to pray and allow GOD to guide you to the right fellowship for you. The pastor will help you grow in your gifts and talents so that you can begin to use them for GOD’s glory, and you and the other members will encourage and help each other along this journey with GOD.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
