Why 'Don't Worry' is Easier Said Than Done

Updated: Feb 20


“Don't worry, fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything,

Dawson Bodenhamer sitting on a fallen tree

by prayer and definite requests, with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And the peace of God shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through the Messiah, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace which transcends all understanding, shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Messiah Yeshua.”

‭‭~Philippians‬ 4:6-7

"Don't worry, fret or have any anxiety about anything..." sorry God— You lost me at the "don't worry" part. In fact, this entire passage seems impossible. And that's because it is. God never asked you to do anything that He didn't plan to accomplish Himself through you. Don't believe me? Here's the proof: "For it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you— energizing and creating in you the power and desire— both to will and to work for His good pleasure, satisfaction, and delight."

~Philippians 2:13

"WHAT?!?" You might say. "Then why is Yeshua prepared to reward me?"

"Behold, I (Yeshua) am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to each one according to the merit of his deeds."

~Revelation 22:12 That's just it— He's going to reward you for "your" deeds even though He's the singular reason you accomplished any of them. He's just cool like that.
