How to Win Over Worry
|Text: Matthew 6:25-34 (NIV)
Worry began in the Garden of Eden with Adam worrying about facing God after he had disobediently eaten of the forbidden fruit. Worry has been a plaque of the human race since then
Worry is something that occurs in all cultures and among all types of people. Everyone worries in somewhat predictable ways. You may be surprised how identical your worry patterns are to those of other people - both in how you worry and what you worry about. Worriers come in all shapes and sizes and so do their worries.
Experience has shown us that if we don't face up to worry and work to contain and control it, worry can grip our lives with such force it will eventually choke out all the joy of living.
But there is good news for the habitual worrier. Worry is containable if we follow God's advice on dealing with it. In our text God gave the disciples His prescription for a worried anxious heart.
