Anxious For Nothing: The Perspective of Praise

ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING—3

THE PERSPECTIVE OF PRAISE

 

20 Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.”   Exodus 20:20

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.    Philippians 4:4-7

  • JESUS is enough 
  • In every situation PRAY 
  • Reset your position to a perspective of PRAISE 
  • Payoff is the PEACE of GOD 

Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me really sucks. God let me down. I’m overwhelmed with anxiety, depression and hopelessness. I’m done never going back to church. Philippians 1:12-13 BAD (perspective of Fear & Anxiety)

 

~Worry Less Praise MORE~

 

12 Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. 13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ.   Philippians 1:12-13 (Perspective of Praise)

 

Real Talk

“Prayer and praise are powerful, but they may be blocked by things bigger than you can move on your own 

19 When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.   Psalm 94:19 (NIV)

25 Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.  Proverbs 12:25  (NIV)

25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose.   Acts 16:25-26 

29 The jailer called for lights and ran to the dungeon and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. 30 Then he brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.”   Acts 16:29-31

Summary 

  • JESUS is enough 
  • Pray about all things 
  • HE is waiting to hear your Praise.
  • Reset your perspective and let it go EVEN LOUDER
