God does not want you stressed. (Matthew 6:25, NKJV; Philippians 4:6, NKJV)
You need to learn to remove worry.
When you continue to worry, we are stepping outside the boundaries of God.
When you continue to live in stress, worry, and anxiety it not only displeases God but it’s also disobeying God.
Remember the character of God when stressed.
God is loving and is love. (1 John 4:8, NKJV; John 3:16, NKJV)
God is wise and gives wisdom. (Colossians 2:2-3, NKJV, CEV, James 1:5, NIV)
God is powerful and gives us power. (Isaiah 40:26, CEV, NKJV, 2 Peter 1:3, NKJV; 2 Timothy 1:7, NKJV)
- Since God is love, He desires only the best of us.
- Since God is all wisdom, He knows what is best for us.
- Since God is all-powerful, He can bring about what is best for us.
Remember that worry, stress, and anxiety changes nothing. (Luke 12:24-26, NKJV)
It won’t help you grow and it will slow you down or make you sick.
You are of great value to God, you are created after His image. (Luke 12:23-26, NIV)
You can’t add time, but you might shorten it if you keep worrying.
- Resolve any personal and spiritual conflict as you can. (Romans 12:18, NKJV)
- State the problem.
- Put the problem in perspective.
- Divide the facts from the assumptions.
- Determine what you have the right or ability to control.
If worry and anxiety continues, it’s probably due to you assuming responsibility God never intended you to have. (Proverbs 12:25, NKJV; Philippians 4:6-7, NKJV)
