Worry Is Not Trust

Read Isaiah 7:1 through 12:6

America is a nation obsessed with worry. Because of broken homes, single parents, and a degenerate culture of rebellion and hate, the disease of worry has grown to epidemic proportions. American citizens spend millions of dollars every year on pills and other medicines, in an attempt to arrest this painful experience, which in essence is just another form of fear. Worry can cause illness and depression, and is a major source of unhappiness, bleeding over into the atmosphere of families, homes, and even jobs.

The prophet Isaiah gave an inspired message of freedom from worry; this freedom comes only from a relationship with God:

 â€śSurely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation” (Isaiah 12:2).

Does worry continually obsess your mind? Begin today to genuinely trust God to move in circumstances that you are totally powerless to do anything about. If you consistently fear things that have not happened, begin today to turn them over to God.


Place your fears in God’s hands and let Him do the worrying for you.
