I Can’t Stop Worrying; I Don’t Have That Much Faith

You are right, in our human strength we don’t have much faith. But Jesus said if we had as much faith as a mustard seed (have you ever seen one? They are tiny!) you could move mountains with it. You see, you don’t have faith in your faith. You have faith in Jesus, and He is the most powerful person on Earth. He said “All authority in Heaven and on Earth has been given to me” (Matt 28:18) He can do everything. He is God, after all. And over and over in the bible it says “Nothing is too hard for God.”

So give the worries to Jesus and let him handle them. You can pray and ask Jesus whether there is anything He wants you to do or change. But other than that, let Him do the worrying for you. There is nothing to be gained by your worry. Jesus said “Who by your worrying can add a single hour to your life?” (Luke 12:25) Worry is checking up on Jesus to see if He is working on your problem, and He doesn’t like it when we do that. It shows we don’t trust him. So when we are tempted to worry, we can just say “Thank you Jesus for taking care of my problems, is there anything you are telling me to do that I’m not hearing. If not, then I trust you.”
