Worry Is A Waste

Matthew 6:25-34

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. 

Worry means to choke, you feel like you have no options, it means giving much negative attention to what if this will happen, what would happen and what happened, you know giving too much thought on the outcome. The word of God is against worry. Jesus was so clear on this one because He knows what worry can do to you:

It is such a big waste to worry.

Worry is a sin.

Worry is not a weakness it is a wickedness.

Worry leaves you hopeless.

Worry means you are agreeing with the devil and disagreeing with God

What can you change by worrying?

When we worry we create huge monsters that eat away our peace.

Worry will keep you busy but it won’t get you anywhere.

Worry is a lot of work, it will make you tired.
Proverbs 12:25 Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad.

When you worry you forgot who God is because worry takes your eyes off God. You will be looking around instead of looking up.

Worry wastes time and energy.

Worry ain't gonna change even a single

You make the devil happy by worrying.

Worry will do nothing but waste you.

Don’t talk about your worry.. the more you talk about your worry the bigger it becomes.

Worry will steal your strength and leave you drained.

Worry is like saying God I doubt you.

You will miss great things for worry.

 The Bible says in Matthew 6:27 Which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

Philippians 4:6-7  do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Worry is a total waste of time. It doesn't change anything. All it will do is steal and capture ones joy...keep one burden happiness none whatsoever ...keep one grouchy and angry at others...not to mention how it would lower ones self-esteem ...and so much more.  
You gotta trust God knows what is going to happen and you don’t know. Understand that God knows what is coming your way.
It is time you sit back and let God lead you. If you do the right God will take care of the outcome.
Worry not.
