What is A Worry Free Life?
25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?…33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,…
The Greek word that is translated “worry” means to divide, to pull in different directions, or to tear apart. When a person is not worry free or having anxiety over problems, they are no longer focused because they are pulled in different directions and it is usually about the future not the past.
Paraphrasing what Jesus says: (seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all the things that concern you will be changed to your benefit.) In fact, it is only when you are worry free that God’s anointing flows freely in you, strengthening, healing, restoring and adding to you.
Worry Free In God’s Kingdom Seeking His Righteousness
But how could seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness change the outcome of what you are worrying about? God wants us to stop looking outside and to start looking within because His kingdom is within us. (Luke 17:21) The abundance of the kingdom of God is already inside you. As you seek first God’s kingdom, the abundance within you will flow out and become a reality in your circumstances. (Matthew 6:33)
How does seeking His righteousness help? When you were “Born Again” you received the free gift of Righteousness from Jesus. When you seek first his kingdom and His Righteousness you are seeking a free gift that God has already given you known as peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. (Romans 14:17) When you are seeking His righteousness, this peace and joy you seek is a free gift from God to help you in everything you are worried about.
Worry Free Brings God’s Supply
Beloved, God wants you to begin to live a worry free lifestyle. By doing things God’s way you will find that God has not only taken care of what is troubling you, but will bless you with His special peace that only He can give you. (Philippians 4:7) God wants you to trust Him and have faith in His love for you, knowing how much He cares for you. When you worry you are actually believing the devil has made progress in your life that God cannot or will not protect you from. But if you will refuse to worry, and choose to rest in the finished work of Christ, you will see the outcome in your circumstance, that was burdening you, change to your benefit. Then you will see the miracle of a worry free lifestyle in God’s Kingdom and the blessings of His gift of Righteousness.
