4 Keys to Conquering Worry & Fear!

Jesus said: "Do not worry about your life....do not worry about tomorrow." Really?

Discover 4 keys to conquering Worry & Fear!

Prudent thinking is not the same as Persistent worry. Jesus is talking here about habitual worry. Being stuck in the kind of mental trap where you get more and more fearful about a situation, whether it’s actually happened or not.  It is reacting with growing anxiety to a situation and allowing yourself to be consumed by it.  Do you recognize yourself?

Jesus gives 2 solid reasons why we shouldn’t worry.

  1. You have a heavenly Father who loves, values, and will provide what you need.
  2. Worry does not have the power to change circumstances, but it does have the power to negatively change you! It can not only rob you of peace and totally skew your perspective of God and others, habitual worry can also become a source of illness, depression, panic attacks, and other physical and emotional problems.

To overcome the worry habit, begin to ask yourself some questions. Record your answers so you can keep adding more insights as the Holy Spirit brings them.  

  • What am I worried about? Name it clearly
  • Is worrying helping or making me more tense and upset?
  • How do I know if my worries will come true? 
  • Where is my focus—on God’s promised help or my helplessness?

After you’ve done this, look for Scriptures that will strengthen your trust in the Lord. Here are a few to reflect on: 

Isaiah 26:4 “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast because he trusts in you.”

Isaiah 64:5 “You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember your ways.”

Isaiah 40:31 “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.”
