Dealing With Issues: Worry.

A sense of uneasiness and anxiety about the future. Scripture indicates that such anxiety is ultimately grounded in a lack of trust in God and his purposes.


The causes of worry:


1) Being world-centred  Mt 6:25; Lk 12:22 See also Mt 6:34; 13:22; Mk 4:19; Lk 8:14; Lk 12:29; 21:34; 1Co 7:33.


2) Lacking confidence in God  Jn 14:1 See also Mt 6:26-32; Lk 12:27-30; Mt 8:25; Mk 4:38; Lk 8:24; Mt 14:31; 16:8.



Worry leads people away from God 

Ps 37:8 See also Pr 12:25; Mt 13:22; Lk 8:14; Lk 10:40-42.



Worry is futile

Mt 6:27; Lk 12:25 See also Ecc 2:22-23.



Remedies for worry:

1) Being God-centred  Isa 26:3; Mt 6:33; Lk 12:31 See also Jer 17:7-8; Ro 8:6.


2) Prayer Ps 55:22; Php 4:6-7 See also Ps 94:18-19; 139:23; 1Pe 5:7.
