Winning Over Worry

Winning Over Worry

“Replace Worry With Worship”

 

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” 

Matthew 6:25

 

1. God is the source of everything you need to live. 

 

He is the Good Shepherd who feeds, leads, and meets your needs. You don’t have to look anywhere else. You don’t have to look to Wall Street. You don’t have to look to the government. You don’t have to look to your spouse, your individual retirement account, your Social Security, or your job.


 

Winning Over Worry

“What If?”

 

One of the things that adds to our worry, stress and anxiety is the “what if” game.

 

          What if the economy falls apart?  

          What if I lose my job?  

          What if someone I love gets cancer?  

          What if I never, ever get married?  

          What if I marry a jerk?  

          What if I marry a jerk, and they have kids that look like the jerk, and it’s an eternal reminder I’ve married a jerk? 

          And the fears just go on and on – 

                   What if …?  What if …?  What if …?  

 

Fear is placing our faith in the worst-case scenario.


 

“Facing The Storms of Life”

 

Much of our fear, worry n anxiety come from storms. Living on the Gulf Coast, we’re all too familiar with various types of storms.

 

In Matt. 7, we have the story of the same storm that came into the lives of two different men.

          One survives… one does not.


 

“7 daily steps to help build faith and trust”

 

It seems not a day goes by without something more to add to our stress.

Last week it was the threat of a hurricane. What will it be this week?

 

The enemy wants to take that stress and make it something that will keep us away from the Father and steal/kill/destroy the joy of living this life that God has given us.

 

Quick question:

What seems to be the greatest source of your worry, stress/anxiety right now?


 

We live in a high stress environment. Pandemic, recession and now, not one… but two storms in the Gulf!

Yes, it’s 2020!

 

There are seasons in life where there is smooth sailing and then there are times like we’re living in today. 

The Scriptures give us great insight for these days.

  1. Realize, worry is a choice we make.

There is no work of the enemy or natural disaster that can “make” us worry… we choose to worry.


 

“Remember God’s Faithfulness”

 

This morning we continue our topical study on worry, stress and anxiety.

 

Key verse:

Phil.4:6 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
