There's always something to worry about. David Powlison recognizes that we have good reason to worry about things. But he assures us that we have much better reasons not to worry! Anxiety is a universal human experience, and we need to approach it with a plan. What do you do when anxieties take over your life? Powlison describes a six-point game plan based on these truths: "It is your Father's pleasure to give you the kingdom. Your father is God. You need not worry."
We think we have many reasons to worry. Jesus words in Luke 12:2234, however, give us better reasons not to worry and six steps to peace.
