There’s something wrong…
Every Sunday at 6 o’clock p.m, I attend the meeting in which my husband preaches about the book of Revelation. In those meetings, I’ve realized something so serious and deep.
But before telling you what God has spoken to me, I’d like to stress the importance in attend these unique and saving meetings. When it’s preached about the Revelation, specially about the churches, it’s as if God were talking about us. After all, we represent one of those churches.
I’ll leave you this piece of advice in order to pay attention to these kind of studies because they’re a revelation for all of us.
Well, now I’ll talk about what has called my attention. The meeting, I had attended, was about the church of Ephesus in which its characteristics were mentioned. The most important ones were: works, labor, perseverance, they didn’t bear evil men, tested those who claimed to be apostles but weren’t, and have found them false. They supported some proof in the name of the Lord Jesus and haven’t grown weary. Moreover, they hated the practices of the Nicolaitans….Well, they have a lot of attitudes that were very good. However, there were something against them: they forgot their first love (Revelation 2:1). And, that negative point caught my attention during the preaching because I hadn’t seen it in that way. It made me think a lot…
That church did everything “right” but there was something that made it leave its first love. It’s something very common in the days we live in: worry and anxiety.
Facing the innumerable circumstances of life, there’s a rooted concern as if it were a “tick” stuck in the flesh. You’re anxious to solve your problems: family, children, financial life, etc. Anyway, it’s a big pressure that makes you have feelings of inferiority and comparison. The worst thing is that the pressure isn’t to BE for God but the pressure of your concern. But, why does it happen? Because, in fact, you haven’t solved your inner problems. You only want to solve the problems that are in the outside but not in the inside. That is not to have a relationship with God!
Pay attention: Worries and anxiety have nothing to do with God! What’s more, they make people be so far from Him.
Maybe, you wonder about this: But, can I not have an anxiety or worry from time to time?
If they’re something constant in your life, it’s a sign that you’re not at the feet of the Lord Jesus as Mary did.
Now, this is the question: What can I do to overcome an anxiety or worry I have at this moment?
