Do Not Worry Preview

A preview of scripture that identifies those passages that demonstrate and direct us to not worry or be anxious…

Leviticus 25:18-21

If you obey my laws and teachings, you will live safely in the land and enjoy its abundant crops. Don’t ever worry about what you will eat during the seventh year when you are forbidden to plant or harvest. I will see to it that you harvest enough in the sixth year to last for three years.

Leviticus 25:18-21 (CEV)

Biblical Truth: When we cast our cares on the Father we demonstrate trust and reliance on Him and have assurance of His protection and blessed provision.

Genesis 45:03-05

He said to his brothers, “I am Joseph. Is my father still alive?” But the brothers could not answer him, because they were very afraid of him. So Joseph said to them, “Come close to me.” When the brothers came close to him, he said to them, “I am your brother Joseph, whom you sold as a slave to go to Egypt. Now don’t be worried or angry with yourselves because you sold me here. God sent me here ahead of you to save people’s lives.”

Genesis 45:3-5 (NCV)

Biblical Truth: What a comfort it is that Christ is close by to reassure us when we are afraid and to forgive when we are filled with remorse. Our Father is all powerful and able to use all things for His good.

Genesis 21:12-13

But God said to Abraham, Don’t be worried about the boy and your slave Hagar. Do whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that you will have the descendants I have promised.

Genesis 21:12-13 (GNT)

Biblical Truth: When we are clear in knowing what God expects of us, we are more able to make difficult choices without worry.

1 Corinthians 07:32-35

I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. But the married man is anxious about worldly things, how to please his wife, and his interests are divided. And the unmarried or betrothed woman is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit. But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband. I say this for your own benefit, not to lay any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and to secure your undivided devotion to the Lord.

1 Corinthians 7:32-35 (ESV)

Seek wisdom regarding your earthly responsibilities, be careful not to worry or be overly consumed with things of the world. Fewer interests in the world will allow you to place more of your attention on pleasing and worshiping God.

Acts 20:09-12

As Paul spoke on and on, a young man named Eutychus, sitting on the windowsill, became very drowsy. Finally, he fell sound asleep and dropped three stories to his death below. Paul went down, bent over him, and took him into his arms. “Don’t worry,” he said, “he’s alive!” Then they all went back upstairs, shared in the Lord’s Supper, and ate together. Paul continued talking to them until dawn, and then he left. Meanwhile, the young man was taken home unhurt, and everyone was greatly relieved.

Acts 20:9-12 (NLT)

Satan will stop at nothing to keep us from God. Do not be worried or alarmed at what Satan desires for evil, for God can use all things for His good.

Luke 10:40-42

Martha was worried about all that had to be done. Finally, she went to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it bother you that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to come and help me!” The Lord answered, “Martha, Martha! You are worried and upset about so many things, but only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen what is best, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Luke 10:40-42 (CEV)

When we are caught up and worried about the details of this life we are distracted and negligent from hearing the word of the Lord.

Luke 02:48-49

When his parents saw him, they were amazed. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been worried about you. We have been looking for you everywhere.” “Why were you looking for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”

Luke 2:48-49 (NIrV)

Seek the peace of Christ to quiet our worries and follow His example of putting the Fathers work ahead of all other business.

Mark 04:18-19

The seed that fell among the thorns represents others who hear God’s word, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things, so no fruit is produced.

Mark 4:18-19 (NLT)

Do not be concerned with the pleasures and desires of the world; they are an obstruction to our being deeply rooted in the Word of God.

Matthew 13:22

Others received the seed that fell among the thorns. They are those who hear the message. But then the worries of this life and the false promises of wealth crowd it out. They keep it from producing fruit.

Matthew 13:22 (NIrV)

Worrying over things of the world is a distraction to the word of God. Put your confidence in Him rather than worldly treasures.

Matthew 10:17-20

Don’t be naive. Some people will impugn your motives, others will smear your reputation—just because you believe in me. Don’t be upset when they haul you before the civil authorities. Without knowing it, they’ve done you—and me—a favor, given you a platform for preaching the kingdom news! And don’t worry about what you’ll say or how you’ll say it. The right words will be there; the Spirit of your Father will supply the words.

Matthew 10:17-20 (MSG)

Like sheep among the wolves we are sent by Christ, though we are free of worry because we place our reliance on God rather than our own abilities. When we speak for Him we trust in His Spirit of wisdom.
