The Cure to Worry

Pastor Greg Laurie delivers a message from Philippians 4, offering encouraging words to help us dispel the worries that plague our lives.

  • The Greek word translated anxious in verse 6 means, “to be pulled in different directions.”

1. The believer should not worry.

  • When you worry about the future, you cripple yourself in the present.
  • Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.

2. Instead of worrying, you should rejoice!

  • “A cheerful heart has a continual feast” (Proverbs 15:15). 
  • God’s plans for you are still good and He will never leave or forsake you.

3. When we pray instead of worry and rejoice instead of panic, we have peace.

3 Steps to the Cure for Worry

  • Right Praying
  • Right Thinking
  • Right Living

The peace of God will stand guard night and day over the two areas that create worry: the heart (wrong feeling) and the mind (wrong thinking).

  • Why do thoughts matter?
  • Because what we think about ultimately affects what we do.
  • The next time you are filled with worry, try talking to yourself.
