Review This Week’s Sermon

Review Key Scriptures

 
Philippians 4:4-7 NIV
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The
Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, 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.”


Proverbs 12:25 NIV
“Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.”


Galatians 5:22-23 NIV
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”


Matthew 6:25a, c, 27a, 28a, 31a, -34, NASB
“Therefore I tell you: Don’t worry about your life, Isn’t life more than food and the body more
than clothing?... Can any of you add one moment to his life span by worrying? And why do you
worry… So don’t worry… Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry
about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. 


John 16:33 NASB
These things I have spoken to you so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have
tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”


Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group

Start thinking. Ask questions to get your group thinking.

outlined in the passage? Why do you think Paul is so specific about the process?

• Where in your process do you usually get derailed from God’s process?


Start sharing. Ask questions to create openness.
• We might struggle with anxiety often because we live in a world that is often negative,
cruel, unpredictable, etc (you can fill in this blank). Which of these circumstances do
you experience most? What could you pre-decide now, to help you claim peace when
faced with that circumstance?
• What are some of the blessings in your life, regardless of circumstances, that you can
call to mind and enter into prayer with thanksgiving next time you’re feeling anxious?
• How do you believe God is calling you to leave your progressively leave your anxiety
behind?


Start praying together. Be bold and pray with power.
Father, sometimes we struggle with worry and anxiety. We know that our minds are under our
control through the power of Jesus. So, we want Your help when we start to feel worried or
anxious, and we ask that you would remind us to dwell on Your truth in Your Word. Thank You
for helping us. In Jesus’ name, amen.


Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.
• When you identify what causes you anxiety, you can create clear steps to deal with it.
This week, write down the things or circumstances that usually cause you anxiety that
you shared with your LifeGroup. Place them in a spot where you’ll see them daily.
Under each one, write out a verse that specifically speaks about God’s power over that
thing or circumstance.
