Knowing that God is faithful, it really helps me to not be captivated by worry. But knowing that He will do what He has said, He will cause it to happen, whatever He has promised, and then it causes me to be less involved in worrying about a situation.– Josh McDowell
We sometimes find ourselves worrying about various situations in our Christian walk. Reading the Scriptures however, comforts us as we are reminded of God’s assurance not to worry but to trust Him completely.
I hope that these verses will help you through these stressful times and help you to keep your focus on the Lord. Wherever you are, meditate on God’s Word and His blessings.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.“
And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding
Don’t be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him from them all.
I’ll give you some symptoms of a sign that your faith is deteriorating–whenever you face all of your problems and you trust only your plans to get you out–it is a sign that your faith is deteriorating. T.D. Jakes
Anxiety is the natural result when our hopes are centered in anything short of God and His will for us. – Billy Graham
Every evening I turn my troubles over to God – He’s going to be up all night anyway. – Donald J. Morgan
