Worry vs Faith

Hits: 527

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?.”

Mathew 6:25

Worry

Everyone in the world has worried at least five times in their lives. Worry is something everyone goes through. It is something that makes people tick, loose focus, yell and even enter into a violence stage. It steals peace of mind..  Anxiety is the same thing than worry; except it contains fear and is the extreme of what people call worry or being preoccupied. Few people see “anxiety” this way until it’s exposed.  One walks in life watching psychiatrists and doctors give prescribed medication for this matter; labeling the individual with a psychology  disorder or as simple as a diagnosis.  This is completely unethical  and a control of mind.  Worry, known as anxiety; is showing doubt and where there is doubt, there is lack of faith.

Faith

Faith is placing your trust in the Lord. Those who worry, lack faith. For without faith, it is impossible to trust God. Some people  worry due to the fact that they are usually in control of most situations. Most people who consider themselves “fixers” are the ones who worry because “this time” they have no control over the issue. However, leaving the problem in the Lord’s hands is trusting that everything will turn out fine. If you think “But I have little faith.” The only question you shall ask yourself now is; Where is my trust coming from? Do I truly trust him or do I just want to make myself believe I do? Where am I truly placing my trust? In mankind or in the Lord? Ask yourself how much time, energy and peace of mind you are wasting during this action of worry and anxiety. Is it helping you or making things worse?

  1. I agree that worrying allows us to be open to senses that stray us away from the path of faith and belief in His power.  Yet in my personal experience, have seen and felt my self suffer from anxiety at times, but I don’t believe it made me a non believer.  I do not think it fair to assume that people are just worrisome or have anxiety, because of lack of faith.  It is holding on to faith that help them get through those anxieties.  I apologize if this was not what you were trying to portray here, but it has come off like that.  I wish you all the best in your journey in Faith.

    1. Robert, no worries.
      Yes, it was not what I portrayed. hehe
      Anxiety is just a spirit; one can be anxious and have faith all at the same time.
      However, where there is only doubt, there is lack of faith.

  2. I agree totally that if you have genuine faith you need not worry. This is something I have learned at a young age and even when worry tries to creep into my head, I will not allow it to overwhelm that faith which is always within me. 

    It takes a lot to have that much faith, and none of us escapes worry from trying to win over faith, but if you put it into perspective, worry has no place and soon dissipates.   

    It can help to work with someone that can open your eyes to the faith, and put the worries where they belong, which is outside your day to day routine and life.

    Good post to show the power of faith and how it can defeat worry every time. Thanks for the insightful information!

    1. Well put Dave!
      Worry is a part of doubt and it intervenes with faith.
      Unfortunately, I have witnessed wise people have lots of doubt but little faith. God gave us the faith of a mustard seed which we should water.
      However, it can easily dry up; making us loose sight of his presence.
