What's Worrying You Today?


We often take worries for what they’re not—instinct, intuition—when in fact, they’re only distortions of reality. 

Today, we’re beginning a series called “Overcoming Worry.” It’s a study based on a Bible verse I love, Philippians 4:6-7. Through the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, you can be released from all worry. May this week’s series strengthen your faith.

We read in the Bible, “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.” (see Philippians 4:6-7, NLT)  

What is worrying you today? 

  • Is it your financial situation?
  • Your academic achievement or performance in school?
  • Your health or the health of your children?
  • An uncertain future? 

Many of us are very worried about others’ views and what they think of us. But what would your life look like if you didn’t worry about anything? We're not talking about being reckless, immature, or passive, but rather living a life in which you totally let go of what you can’t control. 

As Jesus says so well in His Word, “...“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. [...] And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? [...] But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you.”” (see Luke 12:22, 25, 31)

While difficulties are often exterior, worries attack us on the inside, and unfortunately we tend to believe what our thoughts tell us. We often take worries for what they’re not—instinct, intuition—when in fact, they’re only distortions of reality. 

Ask God, day by day, to free you from all worry. We need Him for this. Then, choose to do the following: 

  • Do what’s possible for you to do: Turn to Him and do what you can concerning your situation.
  • Then, release the impossible into His hands: what you cannot do, humanly speaking. 

Our prayer for you today is that you may be able to do your part (what’s possible) and let God do His (the impossible)...!
