Worry is NOT a Good Thing


Once upon a time, there was an attempt made to convince a young man that WORRY was NECESSARY for good future planning.

This attempt was TOTALLY rejected.

There were a NUMBER of reasons why this belief was thrown in the ‘rubbish pile of beliefs.’

WORRY is a TORMENT: one mentally chases his tail around when he WORRIES.

WORRY does NOT accomplish a single thing–other than to worry the one who WORRIES.

Those who BELIEVE do NOT WORRY, but put their faith in God that all will work out for the best.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
–Jeremiah 29:11

WORRY is UNBELIEF: one CANNOT both believe the wonderful PROMISES of God and WORRY about the future.

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
–Isaiah 41:10

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
–Philippians 4:6-7

“Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.”
–Proverbs 12:25

WORRY is NOT a fear of what God can do.  WORRY is a fear of whatever is concerning the worrier.

USUALLY, this is a fear of man or what man can or won’t do.

“The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.”
–Proverbs 29:25

Worry is NOT some type of preparation.

Worry is NOT a method of planning.

Worry is NOT a type of checklist to help the worrier from forgetting something important.

Worry is little more than a GRINDING TORMENT.

Worry feeds doubt and anxiety.

Worry accomplishes NOTHING.

There are a NUMBER of reasons why the WORRIER worries.  Primarily, the one who worries feels that he has not ‘covered all of his bases’ UNLESS he has invested some time in WORRY.

The general, mistaken belief among such folks is “IF one does not WORRY about something, one must not care very much about it.”

During the last days before the return of Jesus to earth, there will be MANY things which will catch the attention of the reader.

IF the reader is unwise, he will WORRY about these things.

IF the reader is WISE, he will KNOW that God is in control and has his best interests (eternally) at heart.


WORRY is a torment.

WORRY is not a good thing.

Do NOT WORRY: put your faith in God to make all things right.

DOES the reader spend much time worrying about what might happen and how to prevent mishaps if they do occur?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
