How To Worry Well (8 of 10)
Series: Philippians - Conquering Life's Dungeons and Dragons
Pastor Chris Brown
Philippians 4:2-9

Understanding Two Opposites:

Worry = to treat roughly - a tearing apart or continual biting.

Peace = to bring unity or harmony - a calm, quiet.

Finding Peace In Worry Through:
Philippians 4:2-9

- Relationships
Philippians 4:2-5, Matthew 5:23-26, Matthew 18:15-17, 1 John 4:19-21
Find the common ground.

Let God be the Judge .

Live with eternity in mind.

- Prayer
Philippians 4:6-7, Matthew 6:25-34, 1 Thessalonians 5:14-18
Thankfulness is not an option, but an obligation.

See your circumstances through the lens of God's:

There is nothing too great for God's power, and nothing too small
for Dad's care.

- Thoughts
Philippians 4:8, 2 Corinthians 10:5, Romans12:1-2, Galatians 5:22-23, Colossians 3:15
Worry keeps you from appreciating what you do have.

Take control of what you can, let go of what you can't.

- Actions
Philippians 4:9, Mark 14:32-42, John 14:27, James 1:22-25
Peace is a daily decision you make, not just an emotion you feel.

Worry is not a sin, living there is!
