If you struggle with anxiety, you are not alone.
Did you know that even biblical heroes like Moses, David, and Elijah were not immune? Jesus even got so overwhelmed once that He said His soul was troubled to the point of death. The lies in your head want to tell you that you are the only one who struggles, but that is not true.
Not only have those before you struggled, but many around you are also overwhelmed. There is hope regardless of your situation. God’s Word provides wisdom and counsel for us when we feel at our lowest.
Below you can find a growing collection of biblically-based resources on how to deal with anxiety. You will find articles, sermons, and workshops on the topic. I pray that these resources can help you discover the hopeful perspective that each of us needs.
10 Bible Verses for Overcoming Anxiety
One of the best ways to see progress in challenging areas is by memorizing Scripture. Here are 10 verses for overcoming anxiety.
Take Every Thought Captive
What do you do with all the thoughts that consume you throughout the day? When sinful thoughts swarm your subconscious, acknowledge their presence in God’s presence.
We are all wired differently when it comes to emotions. We all interpret situations uniquely and respond differently when challenges arise. Do you receive the stress of this life with joy or anxiety?
The Proper Perspective for the Troubled Life
Psalm 39:1-13 – When David was overwhelmed with God’s discipline in his life, he maintained a proper perspective and took it to God through prayer. Don’t talk to everyone else about your troubles while neglecting the one who can fix them.
So many Christians feel tremendous guilt for the level of anxiety they struggle with on a daily basis. You need to realize that you haven’t sinned when anxiety hits, but you could sin by the way you address it.
The Answer for Anxiety
Each of us struggles with some level of anxiety. Certain triggers seem to exasperate it at times, and yet many of us don’t know what to do when the onslaught begins.
Olly Olly Oxen Free
We each need reminding that God is our safe place of refuge when challenges rise. If you are in despair today, never forget that God is bigger than your anxieties.
You can be hopeful in the midst of suffering in this life. Your confidence can be in the fact that Jesus can handle any situation that you encounter.
When circumstances confront us and tempt us to worry, we cannot ignore them or hope they will simply go away. God’s Word is clear – we must fight against anxiety and rely on prayer.
The Weariness of Worry
You would have plenty of valid reasons to worry if God was not your intentionally provisional Father. Rid yourself of the weariness of worry and trust God for your daily needs.
Jesus Got Overwhelmed Too
On the night before His crucifixion, Jesus admitted that He was enduring a level of overwhelming agony. So, apparently, it isn’t sinful to feel anxious, but we must respond to that feeling in a God-honoring way.
