"Which one of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?" (Matt. 6:27)

Tell me something. What is worrying going to do for you? Jesus says take no thought for your life, for your food, for your body, or for what you should wear.

In other words, is worrying about the situation going to change anything? Well, this passage of Scripture says take no thought. So don't worry about it. Don't buy it. Refuse the package. Say, "No, I am not signing for that."

Taking a thought means that you're worrying about how you are going to do this, or what are you going to do about that, or how are you going to live through the cancer which seemingly runs in the family. When you start talking like that, it becomes your thought. You have purchased it with your mouth.

Now just as a thought comes in your mind and becomes yours by saying it, a thought also leaves your mind by saying the opposite. That means, you have to replace it with something higher. When you replace it with God's Word, then you're taking something of the spiritual realm that has more power than the natural realm.

The natural realm says, "I'm broke and don't have any money." The spiritual realm says, "My God supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory."

The natural realm says, "I'm sick." The spiritual realm says, "Himself bore my sicknesses and carried my diseases."

The natural realm says, "I'm going to be by myself." The spiritual realm says, "It is written, I am with you always even unto the end of the world."

I Peter 5:7 tells you to cast all your care upon God for He cares for you. When you allow worry, confusion, and care to govern your mind, you play right into the hand of the enemy. Then you will try to fix the problem with fleshly means, instead of working through the power that is only available through God's Word.

Put the Word of God in your mouth - it's higher than anything else. What you say will affect you first. God wants you to start with issues from the Word spiritually, first dealing with yourself. Eventually what you say will affect the natural problems in your life. Don't follow after the flesh, say the opposite. Replace every thought with something higher - the Word of God.
