The Thief Called, Worry (Philippians 4:1-9)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, March 30, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

The truth is, we all worry. We worry because we don't know how to fix it. Most all things in life, we can't control. Burdens can't take your joy unless you worry about them. Worrying creates doubt and fear. Worrying about the problem doesn't fix it. How to fix "worry" or capture the thief? Don't worry about all the things in the world, pray about it. The first thing is to pray correctly through supplication and thanksgiving. Supplication means to let God know what we need through caring. Asking, "please help me...". Giving thanks is a component of your faith. It means you know and believe that God can do it. Romans 8:28 You may not think that it will be what you think is right but, God has never made a mistake. The second thing about fixing worry is thinking right. One can worry themselves physically sick. The third thing is right living. You must live for God in order to control your worry. If one simply does those three things, right praying, right thinking and right living one can have the greatest want in all mankind. PEACE! You don't just do these three things when you're in trouble, it's a life. Isaiah 26:3

Philippians 4:1-9

1Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved. 2I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord. 3And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life. 4Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. 5Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brethren, 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. 9Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. (KJV)
