How To Get Victory Over Worry!


  • The Unknown And Uncontrollable Future;
  • Something We Cannot Do Anything About;
  • Something We Cannot Even Be Sure About.

God wants us to live in peace and contentment but people today are worried about many adversities, disasters, wars, diseases, etc. We live in a world with conditions that make it very easy to for us to worry and this can make it very difficult for God’s Word to have any impact on us.

Let’s remember that God is in control. So, we can cast our cares on Him.


1. Worry Is Inconsistent.

Matthew 6:25 (NASB) says “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

2. Worry Is Irrational.

Matthew 6:26 (NASB) says Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?

3. Worry Is Ineffective And Doesn’t Work.

Matthew 6:27 (NASB) says And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?

4. Worry Is Illogical.

Matthew 6:28-30 (NASB) says And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith!”

5. Worry Is Irresponsible.

Matthew 6:31-32 (NASB) saysDo not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.”



1. Commit Your Life To God.

Matthew 6:33 (NASB) says But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

2. Concentrate Your Energies On Living One Day At A Time.

Matthew 6:34 (NASB) says “Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

3. Do Not Dwell On All Your Tomorrows.

James 4:13-14 (NASB) saysCome now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.’ Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.”

Matthew 6:34 (NASB) says “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself.”

4. Do Not Dwell On Your Yesterdays.

a. Do Not Worry About Your Past Sins.

If you are saved, through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, God has forgiven you of all your sins (past, present, and future).

Psalm 103:12 (NASB) says As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.”

b. Do Not Worry About Your Past Successes.
You may have had a great deal of successes in the past that are not being replicated in the present. The past is gone so quit thinking about it and get on with the present.

c. Do Not Worry About Your Past Sorrows.

Isaiah 26:3 (NASB) says “The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You

God didn’t leave you here on earth to be a sorrow-er. He left you here to serve Him. It’s time for you to get on with your life because God left you here for a purpose.

As Christians, we are to be salt and light to the world. So, let’s let our light shine brightly so others may be won for Christ.

Live one day at a time and give God the Glory. Put your trust in Jesus. Just know that God is in control, He is trustworthy, He will give you peace, you can rest in Him, and He will bring you safely home.

Finally, worrying is a sin because it shows that we don’t trust God and we are doubting His Word that He will supply all of our needs. Ask Him to forgive you for this and to give you the strength to live a worry-free life. Amen!

Always Put Your Trust In God!

Proverbs 3:5-6 (NASB) says Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.”

Proverbs 16:20 (NASB) says He who gives attention to the word will find good, And blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.”

Proverbs 28:25 (NASB) saysAn arrogant man stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the Lord will prosper.”

Proverbs 29:25 (NASB) says The fear of man brings a snare, But he who trusts in the Lord will be exalted.”

Leaning has the sense of putting your whole weight on something, resting on and trusting that person or thing. When we have an important decision to make, we sometimes feel that we can’t trust anyone – not even God.

But God knows what is best for us. He is a better judge of what we want than even we are! We must trust Him completely in every choice we make.


We should not omit careful thinking or belittle our God given ability to reason, but we should not trust our own ideas to the exclusion of all others.

We should always be willing to listen to and be corrected by God’s Word and wise counselors. Bring your decisions to God in prayer, use the Bible as your guide, follow God’s leading, and He will make your paths straight.

Matthew 6:33 (NASB) says But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

To receive God’s guidance, we must acknowledge God in all our ways. This means turning every area of our life over to Him.


Psalm 143:8 (NKJV) says Cause me to hear Your loving kindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You.”

If you always put your trust in God and make Him a vital part of every decision you make and everything you do, He will make your paths straight and grant you a long, healthy, peaceful and prosperous life.

God Disciplines His Children.

Hebrews 12:5-6 (NIV) says And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, ‘My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.’”

Note: The above reference to “son” includes both male and female.

Hebrews 12:7-11 (NIV) says Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”


Who loves his child more...the father who allows the child to do what will harm him, or the one who corrects, trains, and even punishes the child to help him learn what is right? It’s never pleasant to be corrected and disciplined by God, but His discipline is a sign of His deep love for us. When God corrects you, see it as proof of His love and ask Him what He is trying to teach you.


You may respond to discipline in several different ways: (1) you can accept it with resignation; (2) You can accept it with self-pity, thinking you really don’t deserve it; (3) You can be angry and resentful toward God; or (4) You can accept it gratefully, as the appropriate response you owe a loving God.

God is not only a disciplining parent but also a demanding coach who pushes us to our limits and requires our lives to be disciplined. Although we may not feel strong enough to push on to victory, we will be able to accomplish it as we follow Christ and draw on His strength.

Then, we can use our growing strength to help those around us who are weak and struggling.
