How To Get Victory Over Worry!

How To Get Victory Over Worry!
 
WORRY IS BEING CONCERNED ABOUT:


  • 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.

5 THINGS ABOUT WORRY THAT WE NEED
TO KNOW

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) says
Do 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.”

WORRY GETS YOU ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE!




KEYS ON HOW TO OVERCOME WORRY

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) says

Come
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 j
ust
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!
