3 to 6 Ways To NOT Worry
My first three tips for not worrying are
#1. Trust God according to Proverbs 3:5-6, which says,
5 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
#2 tip is that you are not suppose to worry about tomorrow according to the bible at Matthew 6:34 which says, “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof.”
My #3 tip is to ask yourself if all of your needs are met today. Then reflect on Psalms 23. The very first verse says, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” when I Look at Philippians 4:6-7 – “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”, I can’t help but think of a fourth tip.
#4 tip is Be Thankful. Because after all, 1 Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” And 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” #5 tip is to remember that fear does not come from God. Personally, I could have fear myself, right now, not knowing where my next client is going to come from and if they will sign up for my services. So I go back to my own #1 tip to Trust God with all my heart and to acknowledge Him in all my ways. I have to remember and acknowledge that is is God who gives me power to get wealth as it states in Deuteronomy 8:18. And my situation, my #2 tip to not worry about January’s rent because that is tomorrow’s worry and December’s rent is already paid. And for #3, all of my needs are met today with gas in my car, food in my cupboards, I have clean clothes and I am in pretty good health even as I get over this cold.
So if God said he was going to supply all of my needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19), I have to count on that, believe that and not doubt those words. CAN YOU?
I love Isaiah 26:3 which says, “Thou wilt keep [him] in perfect peace, [whose] mind [is] stayed [on thee]: because he trusteth in thee.” Couple that with the new testament verse of Philippians 4:7 which says, “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
So #6 tip is to Start Asking. Matthew 7:7 says to, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:”
So why are your worrying? Because it feels so big and almost overwhelming, I would imagine. I can relate to that. I have broken out in a rash over worry until the LORD had to tell me to cut it out.
Have you seen that Bob Newhart video called, “Stop it”? Check it out at on my Youtube playlist for Motivational videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow0lr63y4Mw&list=PL7sD-JVPZtCVxJRbo8LT33SsSXBEuX9v2&index=15&t=7s or
I realize it might not be that simple as in this video. So I challenge to quote these scriptures to yourself for the next 10 to 30 days by putting your name in the scripture. Make it personal to you. Make it a personal prayer for your situation by praying the scriptures of God back to God who said his word would not return void, as it says in Isaiah 55:11 “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
See how you feel after a month of quoting these scriptures.
If you are a believer in Jesus Christ this is one way to renew your mind to the things of God and to renew your mind from the thinking of the world. The world has lots of worry and anxiety in it.
This is Nek’ka Migel and I would be happy to pray for you and your needs. Because the scripture also talks about the power of 2 or 3 gathered in his name in Matthew 18, verse20 “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
Dear Single Parent, I was a single mom for 16 years and my time was not without worry. I worried so much that I broke out in a rash until the LORD convicted me to story worrying.
When my income was only about $560 and my rent was $330, I simply worried. Yet when I started trusting the LORD, he provided for all my needs miraculously every month by the 15th of each month that my income was so low. I did not have a car and those expenses during that time. I did have two growing children and there was other debt to be paid. God was faithful to me and I pray you trust Him to be faithful to you during this time of your life.
