7 Things The Bible Says About Anxiety

Day 5 of 7 • This day’s reading

Devotional

In life, you’ll face a lot of difficult situations. If you don’t prepare in advance for this reality, it can be stressful when they show up. One way you can fight anxiety is to surround yourself with the right people—those who can help you through it. If a challenge seems too big to overcome, being able to share that burden can help or even solve the problem.

Jesus gives you this peace on a different level. He is always with you, wherever and whenever you need Him. When life challenges you, it’s comforting to know that Jesus is right there to help you overcome any hurdle. As you draw closer to Him, you’ll start to sense more peace—even in difficult situations…even while you’re fighting anxiety.

When you place your confidence in the Lord, rather than in yourself (or in your circumstances), life’s hardships won’t seem quite as difficult. You’ll have less worry and more peace because you’ll know that Jesus is walking with you through whatever you’re facing. Just as growing your knowledge can help on a test or a project, growing your faith helps you rely on Jesus.

You don't have to go through this alone. Jesus is there for you. Bring your anxious thoughts before Him because He cares for you.
