SAY “NO” TO ANXIETY!

 

“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”  (1 Peter 5:7, NIV)

Anxiety is defined as “an uneasy state of mind, usually over the possibility of an anticipated misfortune or trouble.”

People become anxious at work when they feel like they are out of control. Some people may become anxious when their workload is greater than the time available to get it done. A sales person may become uneasy or anxious when his/her sales for a given period don’t match the company’s sales forecast for that same period. You may become anxious when you have trouble solving a customer’s problem and then you become the target of your boss’ frustration.

We are told to cast all of our anxiety on Jesus because He cares for us. He wants to take away the uneasiness, the apprehension, and the fear we face at work. He cares about us, and He cares about our work. An anxious life is not the kind of life Jesus wants us to have.

Jesus said, “… I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10, NIV)

He wants us to have a full life. He knows that we will face all kinds of problems, but He is asking us to give Him our anxieties so we won’t be overwhelmed by them.

So what do we do when we are facing anxiety in our lives?

  1. Pray
. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petitions, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” (Philippians 4:6, NIV)
  2. Ask God for wisdom about the situation. “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” (James 1:5, NIV)
  3. Have Faith. “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6, NIV)

Cast all of your anxiety on Him this Monday! Enjoy your day, “Working for Christ”!

“Working for Christ”
