2. Worry is the opposite of trust.
3. Worry is an enemy to our emotional and physical health.
“When the excessive fuel in the blood isn't used for physical activities, the chronic anxiety and outpouring of stress hormones can have serious physical consequences, including: Suppression of the immune system. Digestive disorders. Muscle tension.” WebMD
Worry triggers stress hormones…affecting the heart, kidneys, stroke, blood vessels, muscles and other systems…tension, migraines, headaches, intestines…and the list goes on!
4. Worry is an enemy to our spiritual health.
““Don’t worry about anything…” Philippians 4:6a
5. Worry is an enemy to our mental health.
“Worry is a battle of the mind. What we focus on will determine the direction our thoughts go. Neuro-scientific research has given us the fascinating insight that protein branches hold our thoughts. In a real sense, thought create real estate in our brains. The more we dwell on a thought, the larger the constellation of proteins becomes. We give our space and place to the thought we allow to dominate our brains.” Core 52, Page 330
B. Jesus gives an antidote to worry...
1. Jesus commands us "not to worry".
“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life…”
2. Jesus directs our thoughts to nature.
“Look at the birds… Look at the lilies of the field…”
3. Jesus gives us three powerful concepts to focus on:
a. You are valuable to God!
b. Worry accomplishes nothing!
c. You are eternal!
“And aren’t you far more valuable to Him than they are?”
4. Worry is a trust issue.
"Why do you have so little faith?"
5. God will supply your needs.
“…your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.”
6. One day’s trouble is all we can handle!
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
1. Instead of worrying, choose to change your thoughts and pray!
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.”
2. Instead of worrying, choose to tell God what you need...
“Tell God what you need,”
3. Instead of worrying, choose to give thanks in all circumstances.
“and thank Him for all He has done.”
4. Instead of worrying, allow God's peace to guard your heart and mind.
“Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
5. Instead of worrying, fix your thoughts…
“Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”
D. How will you respond when worry knocks on your door?
1. Choose what you will do with your thoughts.
2. Replace your worry with trust.
3. Determine to replace your worry thoughts with trust thoughts.
