Sermons about Worries
Worries of this life are to much for us some times, but there is an answer.
God has designed the Christian life to be a life of faith. We are saved by believing what Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross, and are sustained by believing that Jesus will always be with us as we face all the difficulties of life. Paul simply puts it, “We live by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). The fact is that the more we learn to trust God, the more joyful and peaceful we become in life.
Jesus' parable will reveal the condition of your heart.
Though godlessness appears to be increasing, the truth of the matter is that for all of history, those who desire to follow the one true God face great difficulty because of the godless society around them. That was true in the ancient context of Proverbs. That’s what makes these instructions timeless in their wisdom to our families. Though the words of Proverbs 4 are given in the context of fatherly wisdom to a son, I think these principles apply to all of us, because we all find ourselves living in a world that is basically “anti-God” or “anti-Christian.” We need a foundation for living to survive in this environment.
Have you ever noticed that all successful people have one thing in common, passion. Every successful person exudes passion. Have you ever noticed that every successful team and corporation has a leadership team that exudes passion. Every church that is living out the Great Commission have leaders that have one thing in common, passion. While many churches of leaders who “believe” it is the church that has passionate leaders that reaches its potential.
A lot of people ask me, “How do I know what God’s will is for my life?” How can I live a life that’s pleasing to God? Fortunately the answer is rather clear. “Give thanks in all circumstances for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18) You want to know God’s will for your life? God’s will is that in everything, we would give thanks. What this means is if you’re not experiencing the attitude of gratitude you’re out of God’s will.
The humility to which Peter calls his overwhelmed readers is a humility motivated by faith that God is mighty, and mighty in His concern for our absolute good.
Anxieties and worries will take us completely captive if we allow them to. God is calling us to take a leap of faith out of our Anxieties and our worries. An anxious heart keeps us from being able to live the life that God has planned for us. It holds us back, and holds us down. An Anxious heart is insecure, worried, tired, and see ourselves and others in a negative light. God’s desire is that we live a life of joy in all circumstances and that we begin to cast our anxieties on him because he cares for us.
