Day 16 (March 22): Stop Worrying!

In our journey we built in the spiritual components like fasting, praying, and Scripture reading. There are some things knowledge alone cannot solve. For instance, a person who worries needs a revelation from God and solid coaching from the Bible in order to stop worrying about things outside of their control. Jesus said it this way: “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them” (Matt. 6:31-32).

Praying and fasting about your circumstance will cause you to experience a powerful revelation from God. He will quiet your heart and help you to trust Him. This will free you from worrying.

In order to stay free, you must then take advantage of the truth being presented about money in the weekend teachings and Midweek classes we offer. For example, tomorrow night @ 7:00 p.m. at the East Campus we will continue to explore The Road to Financial Empowerment with The Money Coach, Lynnette Khalfani-Cox (www.TheMoneyCoach.net). She will answer financial questions ranging from the basic to the complex about personal finances. You’ll be sure to take away a wealth of practical knowledge and advice.

How do you coach others who worry a lot? What about that friend or family member that does really weird things because they’re worried. What do you say to someone like that? Tell us.


  1. In general, worrywarts annoy me. But after I recently found myself overwhelmed, stressed and discouraged as a result of my new venture, I've realized it's a serious issue that needs to be addressed instead of brushed off. I recalled Phil 4:6 and decided to really explain EVERYTHING to the best of my ability to my Father through prayer. My situation is still the same (which is good), but how I view it has drastically improved. Going forward, my way of coaching would be to recommend prayer, and to pray with the worrywart to get the ball rolling.

  2. Most times I try to pray and not worry. However, there are those days. I have family members who completely freak out about almost everything. I have to always brace myself so I don't take that train ride with them. I usually help them to calm down or stop freaking by asking the simple question. What would Jesus do? If this doesn't work I smack them lol, no seriously I pray for them and keep it moving.
