Useful Bible Verses On Anxiety

By Tommie Newman

Anxiety can be a troubling problem to face. It has the potential to cripple your ability to participate in what would be normal routine activities. But it is a situation that is pretty common these days. You don't have to succumb to its effects though. There are a number of Bible verses on anxiety and the issues related to it that can provide hope and inspiration to get you put of the doldrums.

One popularly quoted scripture verse on fretting is found in Mathew six verses thirty one to thirty four. This scripture says 'Don't be anxious then saying, 'what shall we eat' or 'what shall we drink' or 'with what shall we clothe ourselves' for all these things the gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly father knows that you need these things'.

The scripture goes on to explain that God is very aware of these needs. It provides assurance that God will fill these needs. Jesus then advises all Christians to focus instead on the things that are of God. Once this is done you are sure to be taken care of materially.

Another great source of comfort for the Christian is found in the book of Romans chapter eight verse twenty eight. It encourages believers to be strong and accept that all things work together for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Sometimes worrying about things is futile. Mathew six verse twenty seven explores this. It shows that no one can use worrying to change their present or future circumstances.

In times of stress, turn to the word of God. These inspirational Bible verses are great motivators to lift your spirit and provide you with comfort and peace. Turn to them when anxious feelings and thoughts threaten to overtake your life.
