Worry-stoppers

By Dave Henning / August 18, 2012

Pastor Max Lucado continues Chapter 4 of Fearless with a list of 8 worry-stoppers that provide us with additional resources for our battle with anxiety.  The first 4 are presented here:

1.  Pray first, asking for God’s help inwardly so that we can face our fears outwardly.  1 Peter 5:7- “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”

2.  Easy now- take it easy, slow down and rest in the Lord (Psalm 37:7).  Like Mary at the Wedding at Cana, we need to accurately assess our problem and take it to Jesus.

3.  Act on your worry.  Think of your worry as a pesky mosquito.  You don’t take time to think about that mosquito biting you or decide to take care of it at your convenience.  You slap it immediately.  As Max states: “Be a doer, not a stewer.”

4.  Compile a worry list.  Then analyze your list and do a reality check.  How many of your worries were fulfilled?
