SPF 198: Theology that Teaches the Anxious Heart

Theology can often be dismissed in really helping our every day issues. But when we study the Scriptures, learn the doctrines of grace, and seek to know the God who created all things – it really does help. Theology has so much to offer including the ability to teach the anxious heart.

Theology helps in Anxious Moments

Our belief about salvation can trickle down to our every day anxieties!

God saves and can do it fully. That matters. Belief in God’s Sovereign power to save us fully impacts what we believe about His control in our every day living.

Matthew 6

Matthew 6 teaches us so much about God and can make our theology grow.

  1. God is Sovereign – he knows and he is able; God is involved in EVERY PARTICLE; as sprout says, “there is no maverick molecule” There is nothing that is not under the authority and control of almighty God.

  2. God has placed value on us – more value than birds which he cares for every day – But this doesn’t make us more entitled because our value is not based on what we do. It’s based on God giving us this value. That should make us all breath a deep breath of comfort and relief. You’re not valued because of what you do. You cannot make your self more valuable. God has placed value on you because God decided to.

  3. Our days our numbered – we cannot add one hour to our lives. God is in control.

  4. God will save His elect – Ephesians 1, Romans 8, John 6

Do not be like a pagan trying to control it all – we must place our faith in God, otherwise we will be anxious.

What we put our trust in. What we believe matters.

When our theology is little, our God is little, and when our God is little, our anxieties are big.
