Anxiety is defined as:
- A feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. Synonyms: worry, concern apprehension, unease, fear…
In a previous post, I shared the need for us to let God handle our concerns. I encourage you to read it, especially if you’re dealing with feelings of anxiety (worry) at this time. That is not God’s will for your life.
God’s Word on Anxiety
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:9 (KJV)
Our fathers had faith in you: they had faith and you were their saviour. They sent up their cry to you and were made free: they put their faith in you and were not put to shame. Psalms 22:4-5 (BBE)
The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17
You, LORD, are all I have, and you give me all I need; my future is in your hands. How wonderful are your gifts to me; how good they are! Psalms 16: 5-6 (GNB)
The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands. Psalms 138:8 (KJV)
So do not start worrying: ‘Where will my food come from? or my drink? or my clothes? (These are the things the pagans are always concerned about.) Your Father in heaven knows that you need all these things. Instead, be concerned above everything else with the Kingdom of God and with what he requires of you, and he will provide you with all these other things. So do not worry about tomorrow; it will have enough worries of its own. There is no need to add to the troubles each day brings. Matthew 6:31 -34 (GNB)
