Many people are worried or unhappy about something. Whether we have a great family or everything is going great in our life. We have these worries that over come us. Praying about it constantly and following God’s word, but nothing seems to work. We always feel insecure. We feel that something will always go wrong.
There are a number of reasons we can be unhappy. Some are okay and understandable such as mourning over a death of a loved one. Remember even Jesus wept because Lazarus died (John 11:35). It is good to be unhappy because we sinned 2: Corinthians 7:9-11. It is acceptable to be unhappy because others are not Christians (Romans 9:1-4) and because of another’s sin (2 Corinthians 2:1-4), but these do not seem fit your situation, since we are constantly worried. Constantly worried and unhappy about something yet not knowing why. Are you worried about your partner is going to leave you, or fearing something will happen when there isn’t any proof causes you to have horrible anxiety.
Do not fear, for I an with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am with your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you. Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.Isaiah 41:10
And we can be anxious when we are not sure of what to do in a difficult situation (1 Samual 10:2; Matthew 10:19). Scripture says that anxiety is a form of fear and that it is the opposite of courage.
Say to those with anxious heart, “Take courage, fear not. Behold, your God will come… He will save you.Isaiah 35:4
Anxiety is a common problem because we are not in control of our life. Then when we add fear that it will not turn out like we want, we will become anxious.
I Effect of Anxiety
Anxiety is like a tree. It’s roots are buried in our desire to control and our fear that we cannot control that situation. Without being able to talk with you. We are left with the impression this is your situation – an anxiety that is rooted in fear. This is sin,
I am full of anxiety because of my sin.Psalm 38:18
And that tree of anxiety has grown into something horrible.
Anxiety in the heart of man weighs it down…Proverbs 12:25
God tells us that a broken spirit is the result of a sad heart in Proverbs.
A joyful heart make a cheerful face, But when the heart is sad, the spirit it broken.Proverbs 15:13
Crushed Spit it
The Hebrew word for “sad” has a sense of “hurt, grief, offended, outraged and distressed. The Holy Spirit describes a hurt heart. This is a heart that is in pain and grieving over something. The Hebrew word for “broken” has the idea of “whipped out,” “flogged,” and beaten.” What does a,k of this mean? God is saying that a heart that is continuing to be burdened with something like grief or anxiety results in a spirit that feels crushed or flogged.
A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones.Proverbs 17:22
In Proverbs 17:33 we discover that a crushed or flogged spirit “dries up the bones.’ This Hebrew expression implies “crushed and flogged” spirit eventually starts destroying the body, “ Dry bones” a picture of death (Ezekiel 37:1-10). The process is easy to understand. Ahead that is continuing to be hurt and continues to grieve results in a crushed and flogged spirit with eventually leads to sickness.
Since I am not sure exactly what sin is at the root of your anxiety. I will tell of some areas to explore.
The first question to ask is “Am I willing to allow God to control my life?” Key me illustrated with your partner. Are you willing to allow God to away your partner? He knows what’s best for you (Romans 8:28). If this is a area of struggle. There are times in my life when I desperately want a situation to occur in a particular way – my way! I find that I pray and pray and I’m still filled with anxiety, fear and unhappiness, I have found that I have never found peace in my heart until I was really willing to submit to whatever God would give me.
You need to ask yourself some serious questions, like are your partner living together, if so according to God it is a sin. God will never give you peace if your living in sin. Maybe this will help:
For my iniquities are gone over my head; As a heavy burden they weigh too much for me. My wounds grow foul and fester… I go mourning all day long. For my loins are filled with burning… I am benumbed and badly crushed; I groan beiof the agitation of my heart. Lord all my desire is before you; and my sighing is not hidden from you.Psalm 38;4-10
Does this sound like your situation? Don’t live together until marriage. Ask God for a Bible-believing partner.
What ever you worry or have anxiety about there is a reason, whether you need to change your situation or change the way your living.
Whatever happens you have three choices. You can either let it define you. let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you. If you can’t do anything thing about it, let it go. Don’t be a prisoner to the things you can’t change.
God has a solution to your situation
Cast all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you.1 Peter 5:7
Yield to Him! He knows what is best for you. If necessary, let Him take your worry and anxiety away. Let God heal you.
