Worriers selectively attend to threat material (Beck and Moore, 1994). These are future events that threaten our self-image. ‘Concern’ on the other hand is a threatening event for which a plan is needed. Worriers never get to the first step of the plan. They only see the ‘disasters’ awaiting. They think of the ‘what if’ questions. Philippians 4:7 – And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit is a Sentinel that turns into a warrior to protect you. When you think of the Sentinel who will guard you, a peace comes about you that no human can convey.
