Re: Vitalise Teen l Remind Yourself
Worry is our inability or unwillingness to trust God. Ouch, that kind of hurts, doesn’t it? But if we really get to the issue of worry, we have to admit that we just don’t know if God will do what we want Him to do in our lives. So we worry and ask questions amidst our doubts. Will He... protect our family? ...heal our friendships? ...provide for our families? ...bring healing?
Since we don’t know what lies ahead, we must choose to walk in faith and trust the God we have come to know. When we remind ourselves of what He has done in the past, we can rest in the present and have hope for the future. There is so much we can remember about God, His ability, and His character. Here are just a few things:
He is everlasting, never becoming tired or growing weary while simultaneously depositing new strength in us (Isaiah 40:28).
He is our Provider of help, never sleeping but instead, watching over us (Psalm 121:2-4).
He grants overwhelming victory to us and never allows anything to separate us from His love (Romans
He holds our concerns because He cares so deeply for us (1 Peter 5:7).
This God, our God, is the One whom we can trust. There’s no one like Him anywhere, ever. He’s all-powerful, all-knowing, and present all the time. There’s never a place where we’ll be that He’s not already there. He guides, comforts, supplies, strengthens, and provides for us because we are His children, and He adores us. Reminding ourselves of this and living it out every day should help us eradicate the symptom of worry from our lives.
We weren’t born to be worriers. We were born to be warriors! The same power that raised our Saviour from the dead is available to us through our Heavenly Father. Here is what God says about us:
He says that we are His children and co-heirs with Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:17)
He calls us more than conquerors. (Romans 8:37)
He created us as His masterpiece and His workmanship, to do good works. (Ephesians 2:10)
He has chosen us, and we are His very own possession. (1 Peter 2:9)
He has called out of darkness into His marvellous light. (1 Peter 2:9)
Eliminating worry from overtaking our lives just takes intentionality on our part. We have to stop toxic, worrisome thoughts so that they don’t stop us from living the life God has called us to. And we do this by claiming and applying God’s truth to our lives and trusting Him in faith since we can’t see what tomorrow holds. Our God is good all the time and has the very best plan laid out for us to be a part of.

What do you believe?
#Christianity is the life of #God (the Creator) in human beings (that's us). What this means, practically, is that each day, you take steps to get to know this God, through His Word, the Bible (https://classic.biblegateway.com) ,by building a relationship with Him, through faith in Jesus Christ.
In the same way, as soon as your baby is born, in fact from the moment you "know" that you are pregnant, you spend time getting to know the baby, letting them know that each day
I ask you, then, would you like to be in a relationship with #God, the God of the Bible, the God that made this beautiful earth, through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?
The God that gave Jesus Christ to us:
This the WHAT
John 3:16-18 The Message (MSG)
“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him."**
And we (using #faith, a bit like #electricity, we know it's there because the lights come on) accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and get to know Him each day, as we would our own dear friends, loved ones, a spouse.
This is the WHY
"It’s crucial that we keep a firm grip on what we’ve heard so that we don’t drift off. If the old message delivered by the angels was valid and nobody got away with anything, do you think we can risk neglecting this latest message, this magnificent salvation? First of all, it was delivered in person by the Master, then accurately passed on to us by those who heard it from him. All the while God was validating it with gifts through the Holy Spirit, all sorts of signs and miracles, as he saw fit."**
In exchange for following Jesus you will receive peace, freedom, joy (that's laughter whilst your awake, peace whilst you sleep), it will be hard, your friends may disown you because you've become "one of us" but guess what even if you have a tough day, you will never be alone again.
Read this prayer along with me:
This is your YES
"Lord Jesus, thank You for giving Your life for me and forgiving me of my sins so I can have a personal relationship with You. I am sincerely sorry for the mistakes I've made, and I know I need You to help me live right.
Your Word says in Romans 10:9, "If you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His Power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
I believe You are the Son of God, and I confess You as my Saviour and Lord. Take me just as I am, and work in my heart, making me the person You want me to be. I want to live for You, Jesus, and I am so grateful to You for giving me a fresh start in my new life with You today. I love you, Jesus!"**
