Reflecting on God’s Truth can sometimes help unwind anxiety in our lives. Here are some encouraging, peace-giving truths and passages that might be helpful when anxiety works its way into your life.
God will sustain me.
“Now we have this treasure in clay jars, so that this extraordinary power may be from God and not from us. We are afflicted in every way but not crushed. We are perplexed but not in despair; we are persecuted but not abandoned; we are struck down but not destroyed.” (2 Corinthians 4:7-9)
God gives me strength.
“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)
Jesus understands my pain.
“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in every way as we are, yet without sin. Therefore, let us approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:15-18)
God understands my thoughts.
“Lord, you have searched me and known me, you know when I sit down and when I stand up, you understand my thoughts from far away. You observe y travels and my rest; you are aware of all my ways.” (Psalm 139:1-3)
Nothing can separate me from God’s love.
“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:38-39)
This world is temporary, heaven is forever.
“The suffering of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed o us.” (Romans 8:18)
God sees me and cares for me.
“You yourself have recorded my wanderings, put my tears in your bottle, are they not in your book?” (Psalm 56:8)
God works everything for my good.
“We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
God will take care of me.
“God will supply all my needs according to his riches in glory.” (Philippians 4:19)
God gives me rest.
“Come to me all who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
