11 Bible Verses On Worry To Remind You That God Is In Control

“Be anxious for nothing…” —Phillippians 4:6

There are many popular Bible verses to help you combat anxiety, and worry. The Bible says to cast your fears on God because his gift to us is perfect peace.

Will believing that God is in control cure your anxiety?

There are lots of stories about men and women who were faithful strong and courageous during times of stress.

In fact, one of the most popular Bible verses ever written is Philippians 4:6, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”

Easier said than done, right?

Stress is a heavy burden. Anxiety is the worst thing to carry around with you. It ages you, ruins your posture, weathers your skin, encourages you to over-eat, or under-eat. It causes health problems, and mental health problems, insomnia, and fatigue.

Stress is the direct result of fear and worry. Sometimes its small worries like being late to work, or burning your dinner. Sometimes it’s big worries like not being able to pay your bills or never amounting to your potential. Worry translates directly to stress.

The phrase itself is not that literal. It is prompting us to trust that everything is part of a greater plan. God’s plan, the universe’s plan, whatever you believe in. There’s little in life that we can change. We can work hard and strive to be our best every day and hope that things work out, but we can’t worry things into existence.

We can, however, pray that whatever comes our way we are able to handle it. We can manifest our own strength through prayer and faith, (whether that faith is in God or in ourselves). If we are able to trust our own conviction in conflict, that should prove to alleviate a lot of the pressure we carry with us day-to-day.

For those who are unfamiliar with the Bible, think of the Beatles. “When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me. Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.”
