How do we deal with worries and fears ? We worry about very many things, and each worry is different. In this sermon from Advent 2007, Pastor Langdon discusses a number of biblical strategies for dealing with worry and we pray that one of these will help you with the worry you are dealing with right now. See the show notes for additional resources

Episode Notes

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.”
- Corrie ten Boom  ◊ “The remarkable thing about fearing God is that when you fear God you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God you fear everything else.” - Oswald Chambers  ◊ “I have learned that worship and worry cannot live in the same heart: they are mutually exclusive.”  - Ruth Graham  ◊ “Who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? ... Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you... So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” - Mathew 6   ◊ “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by Prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 4:6-7  ◊  Plan & Act: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart , as working for the Lord, not for men” - Colossians 3:23, Ecclesiastes 9:10, Proverbs 6:6 ◊ “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” - 1 Peter 5:7  ◊ “Those who hopefully Wait for Me will not be put to shame.”  - Isaiah 49:23








The First Rule


The first rule is simply this:

Live this life
And do whatever is done
In the Spirit of Thanksgiving.
Place at His Feet:
Your Desire for Certainty
Your Desire for Security
Your Desire to be Full
Your Anxiousness
Your Worries
Your Fears
And come to comfortable Rest
In the certainty that those
Who participate in this life
with an attitude of Thanksgiving,
Who trust in the faithfulness
of their Maker,
Who humbly walk with their God -
Will receive the full promise.
Therefore let us live boldly
 this day
in the name of the Father,
 and the Son,
and the Holy Spirit,
