LIFE THRONES By Hope Nwambie
Life has taught me that worry has the potential of
sapping me of most of life’s pleasant flavors and
There had been times in the past when I worried
myself over things and situations I had no business
worrying about. Sounds familiar?
Some times, my worry arose not just from day to
day negative experiences around me but also from
negative news via different media. I worried to a
point that my faith sometimes came under attack
arising from anxiety and thinking about all the
negative news I allowed into my mind.
This was the situation till some years ago when I
had the leading to take a break from my legal
practice and go to the Bible School. In the course
of our training, the Lord made me understand that
for Him to remain at my life’s throne all of the
time, I must not only cast ALL my cares on Him but
also stop excessive negative media consumption.
In Matthew 6:31-34 we are told to take no
thought… ( to not worry). Thankfully over the
years, I have seen the Lord come through for me
in some most amazing ways because I let Him do
the worrying instead of me.
Dear friend unlike me, your own story may be like
“let me give God my big worries and take care of
the little worries myself”. This is likened to the
man with a back-bent heavy load who got into a
vehicle but rather than drop his load in the
trunk/boot of the car, decides to still have the
load on his back, contended that at least he isn’t
walking with his load. How smart?
Please, let God do His thing. Do drop-off your
worries, concerns, anxieties, sickness, difficult
parenting, financial debt issue, business fears,
hopelessness e.t.c on Him. He wants us to cast ALL
our cares on Him.
Perhaps, you might even be asking does that mean
we should not make plans again? Not really.
I have learnt that there is a great world of
difference between planning and worrying. While it
is expected we make plans as should, we must
endeavor to put our plans in God’s caring Hands
because try as we may, it is only the plan of God
that comes through on issues at the end of the
Dear friend, if we believe in God, we must go a
step further by allowing HIM play the role of God
in our lives. Worry dethrones God and enthrones
the very thing we worry about. Lets start
programing our mind to think in tandem with
Lets determine to Stop worrying and start
speaking to those mountains - stubborn pursuers of
life, sicknesses, difficult parenting, dwindling
business fortunes, mountain of debts, joblessness,
marriage difficulties/concern, disappointments
e.t.c that give us sleepless night. They will move in
accordance with God’s word in our mouth.
Friend, Stop worrying! Let God continue in His Throne
and indeed the throne of our lives!
