By Pastor David Stiles Baldwin Baptist Church No.\u00a0 We are never told to worry.\u00a0 Worry is sin.\u00a0 We are commanded, "Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.\u00a0 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep you hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Phil.4:6,7) What a great God we have!\u00a0 Have you been in prayer lately?\u00a0 How thankful have you been recently?\u00a0 No matter what our care may be, we are to seek the face of God for the answers.\u00a0 "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." (Psa.46:1) No matter what our need may be, we have the promise of God to lean upon.\u00a0 "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Phil.4:19) He doesn't promise to supply all of our greed, just our needs. What do you think you need?\u00a0 The greatest need anyone has is to settle your eternal destiny.\u00a0 Jesus died on the cross to purchase our salvation.\u00a0 Our debt of sin had to be paid.\u00a0 Only the eternal son of God could pay our debt.\u00a0 The sinless savior took our place on the horrible cross. He shed his sinless blood to atone for our sins. All we need to do is accept this free gift of eternal life. We can do nothing to pay for our own sins.\u00a0 Not good works, baptism, membership in a religion, or trying to buy off God will pay our bill.\u00a0 The thief on the cross put his faith in Christ and that day after he died, came to paradise to be with Christ. Jesus said so.\u00a0 What did the thief do to get eternal life? Nothing!\u00a0 It is a free gift. He believed in Christ.\u00a0\u00a0 Remember, that free gift cost Christ everything! Stop worrying.\u00a0 Christ has already paid the bill we owe.\u00a0 "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Rom 10:13) Have you put your faith in Christ?\u00a0 Don't wait.\u00a0 There are no promises for tomorrow. Another need is to deal with the more immediate challenges of life in the correct way.\u00a0 Psa. 9:9,10 says: "The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.\u00a0 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee; for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee."\u00a0 Have you put your trust in Christ? We have a great God!\u00a0 Go to Him.\u00a0 He promises His followers, "He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him." (Psa.91:15) Have you called out to him lately? Have you listened to him as you read his word? Get into the word of God right now. There's no time like the present to find out what God thinks about the issue.\u00a0 "Come let us reason together." (Isa.1:18) What are you afraid of running into today?\u00a0 Christ has the solution.\u00a0 Christ is loving and kind.\u00a0 He came and hung on the cross to prove His love.\u00a0 Let Him meet that need. Listen to the testimony of the apostle Paul: "We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed." (2 Cor.4:8,9) What a great God we have.\u00a0 Yes, there are times of trouble, but our Lord is there.\u00a0 We will not be distressed.\u00a0 We may be perplexed but not filled with despair.\u00a0 Our Savior is there.\u00a0 We may be cast down, but our shepherd will pick us up and hold us close. The question remains, do you have Jesus as Savior?\u00a0 Would you trust Him today?\u00a0 Wait no longer!\u00a0 Time is wasting.\u00a0 Sin is enslaving.\u00a0 The mire of this world is deepening.\u00a0 The flesh wants to take you down.\u00a0 The Devil seeks your destruction.\u00a0 The answer is Christ.\u00a0 Believe God's plan.\u00a0 God's plan works if you work within His plan. Stop worrying and start to live by faith.\u00a0 Trust Christ today.\u00a0 He remains the answer.\u00a0 What a great God we have. You only have to seek him.\u00a0 He's waiting.
