Worrying can subside when you focus on God and when He’s your number one.
When we worry it only ages us. It gives us wrinkles and takes our joy away. It can make us gain weight because our hormones get out of whack. Worrying will add more stress to your life.
I hope these next 3 points will help you to lessen your worry and seek what God says about worry and being anxious in His Word.
3 Points to Help You Stop Worrying
1. Nothing about worry can change your circumstance.
You’re going to worry about something that you should never have worried about in the first place. The things we typically worry about never happens. But we worry all the time. You’re probably worrying right now and don’t even realize it.
Worry can never change your circumstance.
There is plenty of scripture that talks about worry.
Luke 12:22 is the famous one which talks about do not worry, do not be anxious, especially about what you will eat, what you will drink and what you will wear.
We are reassured in Luke 12:22 that God is going to take care of us and provide for us.
We change our minds so often that we don’t know what we want. We don’t know what we need tomorrow. But He does.
2. Nothing you worry about can give you control over the circumstance.
We worry about the situation and we think if we worry it will give us more control.
We can’t control the circumstance with worry, but we can control the perspective of how we view our situation.
Worry is never going to give you control over your circumstance.
3. Nothing you worry about will help you feel calm.
When was the last time you worried and you felt peaceful?
In order to gain control over our thoughts and renew our mind we have to examine our thoughts. We can’t let our thoughts spin out of control about a situation.
An example of what could happen is your husband doesn’t call you like he normally does and all of a sudden in your mind you have him in a car accident dead.
I know that sounds over the top, but it’s so true. That’s what we do. We take a situation and we literally let our thoughts spiral.
You can apply this to business. I think it’s the reason most people don’t start their business, or if they start it they don’t go anywhere. It’s because they’ve convinced themselves by worrying that they won’t be successful. Their mindset actually prevents them from becoming successful.
- Nothing about worry can change your circumstance.
- Nothing about worry can you control your circumstance.
- Nothing about worry will make you feel calm.
If you google scripture about worry you will find lots of scripture reminding us to not worry, to not be scared, to not be fearful, that He’s number one, that He’s going to provide and that He is faithful.
Something I had to learn and mature in my relationship with God is that just because I want something doesn’t mean it’s good for me. God knows what’s best for me whether it’s in business or in relationships. He is faithful all the time.
I want to encourage you to grow and have a deeper relationship with Him. Study His Word about worry and let His Word change your heart.
