What Does The Bible Really Says About Anxiety

Christians need to understand that anxiety is something that we all experience.

The Bible gave us an insight into a number of people who were afflicted by anxiety. For example, we cannot discuss the issues of worries without addressing the many Psalms of David, which cry out to the Lord in distress. David describes himself as in pain and afflicted. Psalm 69:29 But I am sick and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.

We can also attribute anxiety to Daniel because he said when confronted with terrifying visions, he fainted and lay sick for days [Daniel 8:27]. In the previous chapter, he had described his mental state as troubled in spirit because of the visions he saw [Daniel 7:15]. Daniel, through his dreams, saw what the future held, he knew terrifying rulers and powers would take hold of the future, it disturbed him, rendering him unable to do much for several days.

All of the Bible verses for anxiety and worry can be used as weapons to fight off the enemies when you are, tempted. You must stand fast on the promises from the Lord thy God, and no situation will be able to cause anxiety to take root. No matter how much you are, tempted. It may take a long time for the condition to be sorted out. Also, even if the result is not what you had hoped it to be.

If and when anxiety attack always, remember the teaching of the book of Philippians 4:6-8 –  Be careful about nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are real, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
