We need faith to live a happy life. This study will look at how to deal with worry and respond with faith.
So faith comes from hearing the message. And the message that is heard is the message about Christ.
THINK ABOUT IT:
Trusting and believing in God gives us peace and purpose in our life.
Faith comes from hearing the word.
Reading, listening, and obeying give us faith.
WRITE ABOUT IT:
Q. What are some different examples of ways that we can “hear” the word? What are ways you enjoy learning about God?
We will give you some ideas at the end of this study for very practical ways to hear more!
Jesus answered, “It is written, ‘Man must not live only on bread. He must also live on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’
Matthew 4:4 NIrV

“I tell you, do not worry. Don’t worry about your life and what you will
eat or drink. And don’t worry about ‘your body’ and what you will wear. Isn’t there more to life than eating? Aren’t there more important things for the body than clothes?
31] So don’t worry. Don’t say, ‘What will we eat?’ Or, ‘What will we drink?’ Or, ‘What will we wear?’ 32] People who are ungodly run after all those things. Your Father who is in heaven knows that you need them. 33] But put God’s kingdom first. Do what he wants you to do. Then all those things will also be given to you. 34] So don’t worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:25, 31-34 NIrV
THINK ABOUT IT:
Doing what God wants us to do helps us not to worry about empty things.
God knows what we need. If we seek him and obey his Word, he will satisfy us.
