Topic: Four Steps to Help You Stop Worrying
Today’s Scripture: “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7 (NLT)
It takes more than willpower to stop worrying—but you already know that, because you’ve already tried it. You’ve thought, “I shouldn’t worry about this,” yet it stays on your mind.
Here are four steps to help you stop worrying:
Get to know God.
Jesus says in Matthew 6:32, “People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things” (The Message). If you don’t have a relationship with God, you have every reason to worry. That’s why you need to get to know God!
As a believer, you have a heavenly Father who has promised to take care of you. You are God’s child, and children get special privileges. When you worry, you are acting like you don’t have a loving Father who is with you and for you.
Put God first in every area of your life.
Matthew 6:31-33 says, “Don’t worry at all about having enough food and clothing . . . your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well that you need them, and he will give them to you if you give him first place in your life” (TLB). Anytime you take God out of the center of your life and put anything else there—no matter how good it is—you’re going to worry.
