Worry is like a plague of our body. It attacks our mind, then our heart, and over time, it can consume our overall health. Jesus said, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life.” How good are you at obeying that verse?
One part of maturing as believers is to begin to eliminate worry from our life. I’m not claiming we ever get there, but as we grow we should, over the years, worry less.
Here are 5 steps to having less worry:
Pray more – It’s a trade-off. You can never do both at the same time. Which would you rather do?
Do wise things – You’ll have less to worry about.
Read more – Of course, I’d recommend the Bible first, but read things that speak of truth. Fill your mind with good things. It will crowd out the bad things.
Choose your thoughts carefully – Why worry about what you can’t control? Think on things you can control, rather than things you can’t. (For a sermon on doing this, click HERE.)
Trust more – Step up your faith. God is on His throne, He has a plan, and He will do what is best. Every time!
Be honest: Are you a worrier?
