Stop Worrying

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with

thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;” (Philippians 4:6,


Yesterday I shared with you the things we “ought” to think about as instructed

from Philippians 4:8, “whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest,

whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are

lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be

any praise, think on these things.”

The fact is, if we did what Philippians 4:8 tells us to do, we would not have need of

Paul’s admonishment in Philippians 4:6 “Be anxious for nothing . . .” Anxiousness

or worry comes when we are thinking too much about the wrong things. Paul is

telling us, in essence, “Don’t worry about anything, just pray, ask God for what

you want or need, give Him thanks in advance and you will have peace.”

We spend too much time worrying. Worrying about what might happen, what

should happen, what we will do if something does or does not happen. In doing so,

we stress ourselves out, and in many cases, over nothing. You ever worry about

something and then find out that what you worried about never took place? You

stressed yourself out over nothing. Since you know that God has got you, think on

those good thoughts. Someone said, “Worrying is like rocking in a rocking chair.

You are doing a lot of moving but you’re not going anywhere.” STOP
