How to Break the Worry Habit

by Pastor Ken

Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you. He will never allow the righteous to be moved.

Psalm 55:22

Studies show that 40% of our worries are about the past, 50% are about the future, and 10% are about the present. But did you know worrying can create an unwanted and unexpected tsunami of evil by giving your enemy an invitation to take up residence in your heart and mind? Worrying is a bad habit because when you worry you aren’t giving things over to God in faith that He can and will take care of them.

So how do you break the habit of worrying?

Put the past in the past. Forget the past and looking forward to what lies ahead (Philippians 3:13).

Pray! Ask God’s direction for your present and your future, then listen and obey. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything including your worries. Thank God as if He already solved all of them. Then, you will have His peace that will guard your heart and mind. You can live your life with great satisfactions (Philippians 4:6-7, Psalm 55:22). Just press on toward the goal for the prize of His high calling (Philippians 3:14).

Prayer: LORD, get rid of all my worries and then fill my heart with Your peace, courage, and calm assurance. Let me have Your victory over any worries. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
