How To Control Worry

January 30, 2022   /   Faith Assembly


Matthew 8:23-27 

You May Be A Worrier If 

You tend to dwell on problems 

You are easily upset by small annoyances 

You are naturally critical 

You have physical symptoms 

You constantly rehash past events 

You feel insecure about the future You feel burned out 

You find lose ends hard to handle 

You are defensive and confrontational 

You have a problem when you don’t get your way 


The Causes Of Worry 


Matthew 8:23 Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with his disciples. 

24 Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 


The Storm: Unexpected 

The Waves: Overwhelming  

The Boat: Inadequate  

Jesus: Insufficient  


The Cure For Worry 


Matthew 8:25 The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 

26 Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm.

27 The disciples were amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked. “Even the winds and waves obey him!” 


Respond Like A  Of Jesus 


Philippians 4:6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. 


Question Your  


John 14:27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. Fear – I look at something in the future that I am afraid might happen 


Matthew 6:34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. 


Increase Your 


Matthew 6:30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? Faith – I look at the future and trust the God who is with me 


Luke 8:14 The seeds that fell among the thorns represent those who hear the message, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the cares and riches and pleasures of this life. And so they never grow into maturity. 


Acknowledge God’s 


Psalm 89:8 O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies! Where is there anyone as mighty as you, O Lord? You are entirely faithful. 


1 Chronicles 29:11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things. 


Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 

27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 


Matthew 6:33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. 


1 Peter 5:7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
