4 Important Bible Truths to Remember When You Feel Anxious or Fearful

Scripture offers these important truths to help us overcome fear, anxiety, and worry.

What a comfort to know that our God fully and completely understands us, both our strengths and weaknesses. 

He knows that many times we give in to worry. And He tells us how to deal with it: 

1. We should take our concerns to the Lord. 

"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7  

"Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken." Psalm 55:22 

"Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens." Psalm 68:19 

2. When we start to worry, we should pray. 

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."  Philippians 4:6

3. We should seek God’s purposes and deal with our problems one day at a time.

"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." Matthew 6:33-34

4. We should remember that worry is useless and unproductive. 

"Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" Matthew 6:27
