In Matthew 6:25 Jesus said, “Do not be anxious about your life” and Paul said in Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” In view of these verses and others, the following resources will seek to open the Scriptures and help those struggling with anxiety.
Paul speaks about not being anxious but instead having God's peace guard your heart and mind. Do you bring your cares and concerns to Christ and not pick them up again and worry about them, but leave them to the Lord Jesus?
How can you tell the difference between good and bad anxiety? Is your anxiety a desire in your heart to care for someone and it produces fruit? Or is it a lack of trust in the Lord and it produces sin and selfishness?
If you give into anxiety you will reap fear, condemnation, and discouragement. Anxiety is a wasted choice that dishonors the Savior. Rather we must not yield to anxiety, but take everything to the Lord in prayer.
