No Worries

October 25, 2017

“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” –Jesus, Luke 12:25

 

Life’s circumstances include issues and problems – I worry about them all.

I worry I will make the wrong decision.

I worry about people and situations I can’t control.

I worry about outcomes and potential consequences.

I worry about hearing God and discerning His will and direction.

Worry is trying to solve my own problems and be my own god. Click To Tweet

Statistics show most of what I worry about will never happen.

It is a fruitless joy stealer.

I almost can’t help it – I give it to God then take it right back.

• Worry is unbelief in disguise.

• Worry puts a question mark where God placed a period.

• Worry says God isn’t enough.

In His Word, God promises to take care of me.

He promises to care for me now and in the future.

Even in your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you I will sustain you and I will rescue you. Isaiah 46:4 NIV

When I find myself giving into worry, I can repent – put it down and walk the other way.

Walk into the arms of my Father.

Read His Word.

Let His love enfold me.

Listen to His voice, “Beloved, I’ve got you.”

God will guide me through the good, the bad and the ugly.

He walks me through outcomes that grieve my soul.

I can rest in who He is.

I can trust when I cannot see.

I can choose faith over fear.

What are some ways you deal with worry?
