We all worry at times and are overwhelmed by anxiety. Just how can we be spiritual warriors and not worriers? God has given many peace-giving and courage-infusing words in the Bible. Here are some for you to get equipped with, for the battles to come!
Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."
Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be known to God. 7And the peace of God which suprasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Psalm 62:8 "Trust in Him at all times, pour your hearts out to Him, for God is our refuge."
Proverbs 3:25 Be not a afraid of sudden disaster or of the ruins of the wicked
Romans 8:18 "The pain that you've been feeling, can't compare to the joy that's coming."
Proverbs 12:25 "Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down but a good word makes him glad."
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."
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope."
Matthew 11:28-29 "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."
1 Peter 5:7 "Cast all your anxiety on him because He cares for you."
Proverbs 31:25 "Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future." (NASB)
Deuteronomy 31:6 "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Matthew 6:25- 34 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life ? "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Isaiah 35:4 "Say to those who have an anxious heart, 'Be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance with the recompense of God. He will come and save you."
Romans 8:28 "And we know all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose."
Pslam 94:19 "When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy."
Psalm 55:22 "Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall."
Psalm 56:3 "When I am afraid, I will trust in you."
Matthew 10:19-20 "When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour. 20For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you."
Psalm 118:6 "The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?"
