I’m doing a study at my youbible called worries women face.
It was soooo good.
Here it is.
When we worry, we have made a decision to submit to something other than the sovereignty of God. In my heart and mind, I have taken God off the throne…and put myself there instead.
So, how can we fight the battle of worry?
- Perspective – Ryan Leak says this, “You will always find it difficult to rest in the midst of a storm when you feel it’s your responsibility to calm the storm.” In John 16:33, Jesus tells us we will have trouble but provides the assurance that He has overcome anything this world has to offer. You don’t have to worry – He knew you were going to go through hard times and He’s got it covered.
- Put it on His tab – We often give in to worry because we have forgotten what God has done for us in the past. Over and over again in scripture, we see God telling His people to remember. Why? Because we tend to forget. Recalling the faithfulness of God in the past helps remove the feeling of worry in the present.
- Pray – Jimmy Evans put it like this, “Turn your worry list into a prayer list.”
