Follow Along with the Message

The word “worry” comes from an Old English word that means “to strangle, to choke, or to seize by the throat.” The Greek definition refers to being drawn in different directions so as to be distracted.


Many times we squander the margin we have for today by thinking of the possible problems and anxieties of tomorrow.


Someone has said that there are more people addicted to anxiety than to all the other addictions combined.



To Make Margin in Our Minds Realize that…

  1. Worry is Wasteful

Deep inside we seriously question whether we’re worth anything to God.


Proverbs 12:25, “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.”


Worry is wasting today’s time to clutter up tomorrow’s opportunities with yesterday’s troubles.



Margins for Our Minds Recognizes that…

  1. Worry Wipes Out Our Witness

Worry is the ultimate act of rebellion against God because when we worry we’re really saying that God is dead; and if He’s alive, then He’s not able to do anything about our situations.


1 Peter 5:7, “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”


When we fret with anxiety, let’s focus on the Almighty.
