Why Worry – Part 2

Ok, so this series we’re doing at church is really great. It’s SUCH perfect timing, so I’m going to keep posting about here.

“What are you worrying about these days? Most likely, your worry reflects your devotion. In other words, if you want to know what you are most devoted to, look at the things you worry about the most. Jesus understood the connection between our worries and our devotion. As a result, his approach to overcoming the paralyzing effects of worry starts with challenging not just how we handle our worries, but, more importantly, where we place our devotion.

Seeking first your own security will fuel worry. Seeking first the agenda of God will free you. Overcoming the paralyzing effects of worry requires more of a mental application – not so much a “do this,” but more of a “think this.” This week, sit down and make a list of the things that attract your devotion. As you look over each item on that list, say this prayer: “God, here’s my life… your will be done.”

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
