Pastors Corner

Think I’ll be writing some notes and scripture weekly..

Matthew 6:24-34 New International Version (NIV)

24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

Do Not Worry

25 “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? 

26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.Are you not much more valuable than they?

27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 

29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 

30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 

31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 

32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 

34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

The Word tells us we serve the Lord in our minds..and it is surely in our mind where we fight the biggest battles…Joyce Meyers calls it the Battlefield of the Mind.

The enemy comes against our spirit in various ways..depression..frustration…worry..loneliness..fear..and anxiety.

I am sure we have all experienced anxiety..and the biggest problem is that you can’t always talk to somebody about it.

Your at home or at work…your overwhelmed..your stressing out and ready to pull whatever hair you have left out of your head.

I recently posted on Facebook…

What good are all the things you’ve accumulated if you can’t really enjoy them because all you do is worry all the time about losing them!

Isn’t it special that you don’t believe that the God that was God enough to give it..isn’t God enough to keep it.

Yesterday my message to the church God has intrusted to me was when anxiety attacks…

when your stressed…

when your worried..

when your nervous..

your kicking the cat (Sorry Cat)

open your mouth and pray.

And don’t just pray..humble yourself…praise Him for the victory…hold on to His promise…and no matter what comes against you count your blessings.
