Release Your Worry - Overbooked

Release Your Worry - Overbooked

November 18, 2018

Releasing Worry is a major need in our society today.

The key is not to be naive and think that you will never have things that cause you to worry…

It’s what you do with worry that will make the difference in your life!

Don’t let the worries of life get your mind off of God. Instead, look to your heavenly father for provision, striving first to please him before anything else.

Text: Matthew 6:25-34 (NASB)

The problem of life is to change worry into
thinking and anxiety into creative action."
Harold B. Walker, from Think or Worry?

If something is wrong, fix it if you can.
But train yourself not to worry:
Worry never fixes anything."
Ernest Hemingway

1. Worrying won’t fix Anything.

Matthew 6:27-29
Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. (NLT)

2. Worrying is bad for your health!

Proverbs 12:25
Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up. (NLT)

3. Worrying is the Opposite of Trusting God.

Matthew 6:30
And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? (NLT)

Philippians 4:6-7
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. (NLT)

4. Worrying Puts Your Focus in the Wrong Direction.

Matthew 6:25
That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life-whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn't life more than food, and your body more than clothing? (NLT)

Matthew 6:31-33
So don't worry about these things, saying, 'What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?' These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but 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. (NLT)

1 Peter 5:7
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. (NLT)

In comparison to God, our lives are nothing. Yet, we often live like we’re God, cramming our schedules as if everything depends on us. Trust God enough to take a break.

Each one of us was designed for a purpose. On a foundational level that purpose is to know God and make Him known. But there is another purpose which is unique to you.

Jesus must be the foundation of all we do and the purpose behind what we do. If we ever get away from making Christ known and glorifying Him, then every program, no matter how moral it is, will naturally collapse because it is not established on a firm foundation and purpose. In order for God’s Perfect Plan to be REVEALED in your life, you must first get a revelation of the FOUNDATION NEEDED!
