Sermon Info


All of us struggle in some way with worry. Yet, Jesus says, “Therefore do not worry…” Is this even possible in the world we live in today? There is a difference between healthy worry and unhealthy worry. Healthy worry means we are concerned, but unhealthy means we are trying to be in control. Prolonged worry takes God out of our life, and therefore results in sin. So, how should we respond to worry? Focus on Jesus. Be wise and turn what you are facing over to Him. God’s got your situation, and God’s got you. Don’t worry.


1. Worry is the “check engine” light of your life.

Therefore, I tell you do not worry about your life… Matthew 6:25

  • There is a difference between worry and concern.
  • Prolonged worry is not healthy
  • Recognize God can bring healing in your life in the area of worry.

2. Satan, our enemy, distorts the good things of God.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10

  • When you listen to worry instead of God’s promises, then it becomes sin.
  • Instead of trusting the Lord, we self-medicate.
  • This next generation has been called “The Anxious Generation.”

3. Worry is our opportunity to trust God.

Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

  • There is salvation, and then there is sanctification.
  • Excessive worry is essentially practical atheism.
  • Change your thinking.
    • 95% of the things we worry about never come to fruition.

So how do I respond to worry? How can I be holy in this today?
