“Do Not Worry”

Key Verse

  “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God”(Philippians 4:6).

Text — Philippians 4:4-7


We may define worry as the state of mind that shows a lack of poise or confidence in oneself, leading to fear and emotional imbalance. Hence S. T. Ludwig clarifies, “Worry and faith are incompatible. If your faith is strong, you need not worry. If it was weak, worrying won’t help.” Moreover, Jesus said, “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat or what ye shall drink nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat and the body more than raiment?”Since God cannot lie, worrying about the necessities of life is worthless. Worrying makes you an unbeliever and hinders you from receiving and enjoying the promises of God (See James 1:6-8).

God who provides for birds and clothes the lilies will take care of you. He will supply all you need, irrespective of the challenges in the world. You have nothing to worry about as a child in God’s kingdom. The cure for anxiety is praying, supplicating and thanksgiving in all things.


Worrying makes you an unbeliever


Nothing to worry about.
