No Middle Ground

~

Human nature likes to rationalize…to create a “home free” status…to establish some middle ground…a place where you can remain neutral.

God doesn’t see it that way…your either for Him or against Him.

Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me. Matthew 12:30 NLT

Why Worry…When You Can Pray

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. (Philippians 4:6 MSG)

Easier said than done? If you choose to focus on the situation or the problem that is causing you to worry, then God’s direction is difficult. Remember Peter? He was walking on water…that is, until he took his focus off Jesus; then Peter was right back to worrying and treading water.

The Old English word for “worry” is wyrgan and the Old High German word for “worry” is würge. Both definitions mean “to strangle, to choke, to gag, to wretch.” Somehow, reading this definition, “worry” takes on a completely new meaning.

“Believers! Why “strangle or choke or gag or wretch” when you can pray.
