Good morning.

The Bible describes worry as one of the things that can choke the word of God in your life⎯ killing the joy, faith, and peace that it produces⎯ making it unfruitful.

"but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful." (Mark 4:19)

The worries of this world cause us to be confused. We lose so much joy when we worry about money and are driven by greed. So often we worry about not having the things we want. Wealth, as stated in this verse, is deceitful. The only thing we achieve by worrying about it, is to choke the word of God that actually has the power to prosper us.

Jesus also mentions desires for other things. He is referring to the constant desire we have for things which draw us away from the presence of God. The Bible teaches us that in His presence there is fullness of joy. This means our joy is complete and lacking nothing as we draw nearer to our Father.

"Surely you have granted him unending blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence." (Psalms 21:6)

Have a good day.
