Do you struggle with worry and anxiety? Pastor Greg Laurie covers what Jesus has to say on the topic as we finish our series, "Sermon on the Mount." 

Notes:

Matthew 6

“The more we use social media, the less happy we seem to be.” —Alice G. Walton, Senior Editor, Forbes

What do people worry about the most?

Appearance.

When things are good, we worry about when they’ll be bad; and when things are bad, we worry about if they will ever be good again.

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus talks about the believer and worry.

He tells us why we should not worry and what we should do instead.

Read: Matthew 6:25–34

The believer should not worry.

“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life.”

Matthew 6:25

In other words, “do not have anxiety about the issues of life.”

Worry can be a sin!

Because worry is a lack of trust in God.

Worry is never of any value; it never helps but always hurts!

“Worry is a lot like a rocking chair … always moving, but never getting anywhere!”

The problem with worry is it’s the interest paid on trouble before it’s due.

“The result of worrying about the future is that you are crippling yourself in the present.”—Dr. Martin Lloyd Jones

Worry is a lack of trust.

“Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”

1 Peter 5:7

The word cast is not the normal word for throwing something; rather, it is a word that signifies a definite act of the will by which we stop worrying about things and let God assume the responsibility for our welfare.

If it’s a concern for you, it is also a concern to God!

Psalm 139:17

Birds don’t worry. Why should we?

Matthew 6:26

Flowers don’t worry. Why should we?

Matthew 6:28–29

1 Timothy 4:8–9

Too much emphasis on the physical but neglecting the spiritual.

Too much emphasis on the spiritual but neglecting the physical.

God takes care of the birds and flowers; He will also take care of you.

So, if the greater thing is in His control, leave the lesser to Him as well.

Worry does not make life longer; it makes it more miserable.

Matthew 6:27

Instead of worry, put God and His Will first in your life.

Matthew 6:33

Just as God is concerned about what you will eat and what you will wear, He is also concerned about who you will spend the rest of your life with.

Seek first the Kingdom of God!

When I put God and His Kingdom first, my life will find its proper balance.

Don’t worry, pray! When your knees start knocking, kneel on them.
