Winning Over Worry Bible Reading Week 2 Summary

Each month I present a topical Bible reading challenge and we follow the daily reading together using this month's hashtag, #winoverworry and #biblereading.  Then on Fridays, we meet here and encourage one another with all we learned throughout the week. Check out what we learned in week 2!

Welcome to the Winning Over Worry Bible Reading Week 2 summary! Whew- what a title for a post. In case you are here for the first time, each month I present a topical Bible reading challenge and we follow the daily reading together using this month’s hashtag, #winoverworry and #biblereading.  Then on Fridays, we meet here and encourage one another with all we learned throughout the week. You can also follow on Instagram for an *almost* daily photo of encouragement. Let’s dig in!

1 Corinthians 10:9-13

What encouragement to know that God is not going to give us burdens beyond what we are able to bear because HE is our strength. Verse 13 gives me so much hope:

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

 

Colossians 3:12-17

This #winoverworry#biblereading passage reminds us what to allow to rule our hearts. Does worry have free reign in your heart? Allow the peace of Christ to replace it!

Psalm 55:9-19

If you read the chapter from the beginning, David is in anguish over a friend who turned his back on him. “We used to take sweet counsel together…”  Ever had a friend let you down? And then you worried over it, wondering why and how you might repair the relationship? Or if you should even try? David tells us what to do in this situation. Pray! and the beauty of it? The Lord hears and answers!

Romans 8:28-39

Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect?…Who is to condemn?…Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Collecting Paul’s set of who questions from Romans 8 emphasizes just how wonderful our God is!

Psalm 17:1-8

Hide me in the shadow of your wings. Notice it doesn’t say “Hide me in the shadow of my worries?” I love, love, love this passage.

2 Timothy 1:1-7

1 timothy 17

Paul’s letter to Timothy begins with his usual greetings and then he reminds Timothy of his heritage and the gifts he has been given. I love what the ESV says about what he is to do with those gifts.”Fan the flame.” I fear that I often fan the flame but it’s the wrong flame I’m fanning. I’m so encouraged but Paul’s advice to Timothy is to make the deliberate choice NOT to worry but trust God and believe in the gifts he has given. He will provide. He will give strength. He will carry our burdens. Praise him today!

Psalm 16:1-8

My hubby texted me from he store two evenings ago. “There is a double rainbow!” The miracle of this story of what happens when you hide from the storms is from a few weeks back. But from the#WinOverWorry challenge, the psalmist says “I say to the Lord, you are my Lord.”

When we choose worry over trust, we are failing to recognize that God is not only God, he is our God.

I look at this photo and it makes me think”God, how great you are. You are God. And you are MY God.”

What did you learn this week? I’d love to hear about it!

Have a fabulous Friday!

  1. I am only getting to read my mail today. I am consumed by so much fear, Fear that I will not finish my studies,fear that I will not be able to lift the burden from my mother who is a widowed mother and pays for my tuition herself. I fear disappointing her. But this morning I was very encouraged by 1Cor 10:13 God will not give us more than what we can bare. And Psalm 91 He will protect me and He has got my back…

  2. My country is almost on a daily basis cosumed by bomb blasts by terrorists. There is this constant fear for my life, my kid’s life my husband, family, friends. But on sunday, a bomb was discovered in the church I go to. No one was hurt God protected everyone.It just made it all the more clear that God is with us and only He can keep us safe. These verses have been helping me alot. Thanks and God bless you.

    1. Bless you, Maria. May the Lord continue to protect you. I truly can’t find words to express how my heart feels for you right now.

  3. Tracy Byers says:

    Today I am consumed by fear- fear for my son who seems to have gone AWOL (not military) in Alaska or Colorado (because we can NEVER believe him)… fear for our finances because I was forced to leave an incredibly hostile work environment and subsequently 1/3 of our income is gone and I must now pick up my health insurance…fear that the incredibly painful sadness of losing my brother to suicide will never hurt less…fear that I will be consumed by all of this. Please pray for me today- I am overwhelmed.

    1. Jesus, I lift up Tracy before you right now. Be with her and bless her. Surround her with peace, Lord Jesus. Amen.

  4. Well like Mary Lynn I also woke up with worry and anxiety then when I got to Psalm 91:1-10 I read it then I prayed the verse over my life, and Psalm 91 is a chapter my dad is constantly saying that I need to read so that way it will help me to stop worrying. I need to remember that the Lord will keep me safe under his wings. He is faithful. He will protect me like a shield. I must remember that the Lord has my back so I must not fear.

    1. Faith, I heard a group of orphan children say Psalm 91 by heart. Every time I read it, I think of their little earnest faces and how much those words meant to each and every one of them. “Nor terror by night….” Amen to NO FEAR!

  5. Mary Lynn says:

    Woke up today ruled by fear and worry- surrendering all of that and trusting God’s provision and remembering that He has far better plans for me and my family is hard- Reminding myself to take captive every thought and be ruled by Peace.
