If you are feeling overwhelmed by anxiety, help is not far away. Instead of reaching for some artificial (and potentially dangerous) means of calming your nerves, simply open a Bible. In it you will find many passages that will not only help relieve you anxiety, but they will also lift your spirits. Here are 6 of the best:
1. Philippians 4:6
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
You are never alone. God is always with you. So instead of bottling your anxiety, express your troubles to Him, and ask for His guidance.
2. John 14:27
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
Jesus provides His own special peace that is like no other. Simply let Him into your heart and let Him heal both your troubles and fears.
3. Isaiah 41:10
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
There is no reason to fear as long as God is beside you and guiding you. He is always there to lift you up.
4. Psalm 94:19
“When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.”
God is always there to soothe your anxieties. No matter how overwhelming these anxieties may seem, He can wipe them away and bring you happiness.
5. 2 Corinthians 12:10
“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
With Christ beside you, you never have to fear the things that cause anxiety. This is because He is always there to make you strong.
6. Proverbs 3:5
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;”
Instead of thinking that you have the answers to your problems, admit that you don’t, and put your faith in Him to guide you through your troubles.
