WORRY IS A CHOICE…SO I CHOOSE NOT TO WORRY BUT TRUST!
1. I WILL NOT WORRY… ABOUT NEEDS BECAUSE GOD WILL PROVIDE!
Matthew 6:25 (NIV)
“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 important than food and the body more important than clothes?
2. I WILL NOT WORRY… ABOUT WHAT COULD HAPPEN TOMORROW!
Matthew 6:34 (NIV)
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
“TODAY IS THE TOMORROW YOU WORRIED ABOUT YESTERDAY”
3. I WILL NOT WORRY… ABOUT OTHERS SINS BEFORE CHECKING MYSELF!
Matthew 7:3 (NIV)
“Why do you look (worry) at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?”
4. I WILL NOT WORRY… ABOUT BEING FALSELY ACCUSED!
Matthew 10:19 (NIV)
“But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say”
5. I WILL NOT WORRY… ABOUT THE CARES OF LIFE AND NEGLECT THE GOSPEL!
Matthew 13:22 (NIV)
“The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful.”
6. I WILL NOT WORRY… ABOUT SUFFERING AS A CHRISTIAN!
1 Peter 3:14 (NIV)
But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t be afraid and don’t worry
7. I WILL NOT WORRY… ABOUT DEATH!
Matthew 6:27 (NLT)
“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”
Hebrews 2:14–15 (NIV)
“Since the children have flesh and blood, He too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death..that is the devil. 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.”
What Jesus is saying is that:
- even though the storms come…
- even though the winds blow…
- even though the rains fall…
You can have peace!
