“HELPS FOR WORRY & ANXIETY”
ROM. 8:28 - "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose."
Many people feel that nothing good can come of a terrible virus that has already affected thousands all over the world. And yet as Christians, we believe that God takes tragedies and turns them into good. Notice several additional truths from God's Word, about going through the difficulties of life.
I. REMEMBER YOUR VALUE TO GOD - Mt. 6
A. More valuable than the birds of the air - v.26
B. More beautiful than the lilies of the field - v.28-30
C. Do your best and hang the rest on God - v.31.34; I Cor. 10:31
II. SITUATIONS PRESENT OPPORTUNITIES
B. Worry ... or seek wise counsel? - Prov. 11:14
C. Worry ... or pursue things that matter? - Phil. 3:7-14
III. TRUTHS TO HELP WITH ANXIETY - Ps. 37
A. Trust in the Lord and do good - v.3
B. Delight yourself in the Lord - v.4
C. Commit all you do to the Lord - v.5a
D. Trust the Lord and He will help you - v.5b
E. Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him - v.7
The Psalmist concluded in v.25, "Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread."
During these days of difficulty and uncertainty: be wise, be cautious, and be trusting in God and His promises.
