Why Do We Worry?




Worry.  Stress.  Stomach in a knot.  Can you relate? 

But then I read in the Word and see who God is, I feel foolish.  Why do I pick up the cross and try to carry it myself? 

Sweet friends, read these promises and rest in the fact that God is the great I AM!


Because God chose to create me, I will be confident He has a plan and purpose for me

Because God is a personal Spirit, I will seek intimate fellowship with Him

Because God is all powerful, He can help me with anything

Because God is omnipotent, He is always with me

Because God knows everything, I will go to Him with all my questions and concerns

Because God is Holy, I will devote myself to Him in purity, worship, and service

Because God is sovereign, I will joyfully submit to His will

Because God is absolute truth, I will believe what He says and live accordingly

Because God is righteous, I will live by His standards

Because God is love, He is unconditionally committed to my well being

Because God is merciful, He forgives me of my sins when I sincerely confess them

Because God is just, He will always treat me fair

Because God never changes, my future is secure and eternal

Because God speaks truth through His word, the Bible, I will listen and obey

Because God is faithful, I will always trust Him to always keep His promises

Because God answers the prayers of His children, I will seek Him to direct and guide me

I encourage you to print this list and add it to your "God is..." section of your Quiet Time Journal. Begin your quiet time stating these promises.


Found in my Women's Ministry folder.
