Overcoming Worries

Day 7 of 7 • This day’s reading

Devotional

What if you thought like Jesus thinks?

The Bible says, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 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.” (Philippians 4:6-7, NLT)

Today, we’re concluding our series on overcoming worry. Now that worry has lost its power, it’s so important to guard your heart.

The Bible instructs us, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” (Proverbs 4:23, NIV)

The way you live, the very course of your life, flows from your heart. If you’re worried, you’ll live in insecurity, always uncertain about tomorrow. But if your heart trusts in God, that will manifest in every sphere of your life!

So, how do you guard your heart from worry? By keeping your thoughts fixed on Jesus Christ.

The more you practice this healthy habit of thinking about and walking with God…

  • Through reading His Word daily,
  • Prayer,
  • Worship,
  • Fellowship…

...the less you’ll practice other habits that are harmful to your soul. And more, you’ll grow in the knowledge of the One who saved you and learn to see the world more through His eyes!

Jesus is your model. Have you seen Him worry?

Remember this: thinking is what makes man great...but thinking like Jesus Christ is what makes the spirit great.

And helps us to be anxious for nothing! :-)
