Worry Weighs You Down

Day 1 of 3 • This day’s reading


A Good Word Maketh Glad.

“Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭12:25‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Choose not to let the spirit of heaviness weigh you down. Choose to surrender to God. Let Christ lift every burden. Choose to worship God. Don’t worship the weight and bondage of the past. Choose to redirect your focus and worship Christ. When you begin to focus on and magnify the cares and worries of the world, they will begin to weigh you down. When you choose to focus on your worries, cares and anxieties they will begin to lord over you. Don’t let the cares of this world grip and lord over your heart. Choose to redirect your focus. Choose to focus on God and not the weight of the world.

Proverbs‬ ‭12:25‬ ‭NLT‬‬ declares, “Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.” Let the Word of God feed you. Let His Word encourage you. Let His Word build you up. Let His Word strengthen you. Let His Word direct your path. Don’t let your cares, worries, doubts, fears, frustrations, failures and shortcomings become your lord. Don’t let the weight of the past torment over your thoughts. Pass the test — release the past and worship God. 

What’s weighing on your heart? What are you worried about? What are you concerned about? What wakes you up at night? Don’t let the weight of the world entangle your heart. Let Christ rule and have total access to your heart. Who has access to your heart? What’s sitting on the throne of your heart? Are you worshipping your worries? Are you feeding your cares? Surrender to God and let the Word of God heal you from the inside out. “Anxiety in a man's heart weighs it down, but an encouraging word makes it glad.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭12:25‬ ‭AMPC‬‬
