Bible Verses for Anxiety

Humble yourselves, therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

1 Peter 5, verses 6 and 7.

I would have you without carefulness.

1 Corinthians 7, verse 32.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 41, verse 10.

Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen
your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.

Psalm 31, verse 24.

Do not 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.

Philippians 4:6-7

When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.

Psalms 94:19

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:26-28

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,

Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6:26 to 34

Cast all thy care on God. See that all thy cares be
such as thou canst cast on God, and then hold
none back. Never brood over thyself; never stop
short in thyself; but cast thy whole self, even this
very care which distresseth thee, upon God. Be
not anxious about little things, if thou wouldst
learn to trust God with thine all. Act upon faith
in little things; commit thy daily cares and anxieties
to Him; and He will strengthen thy faith for any
greater trials. Rather, give thy whole self into God's
hands, and so trust Him to take care of thee in all
lesser things, as being His, for His own sake,
whose thou art.

E. B. Pusey.

Pastor Roland's comments

Chances are that your problem is that you are lost between your ears. Maybe the best verse of all is:

 Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding.
Proverbs 3 verse 5

What happens to us is that early in your life, someone was mean, confusing, or pressuring. You got upset. You fell into thinking, and now at the first sighting of stress, you fall into thinking, daydreams and imagination. We meet stress badly, we fail, and then we retreat into thinking where we plan and scheme our next move. Then what we do is canned and unnatural and the timing is off, so we fail again.

Then we retreat into the endless stream of images in our mind where we hide and feel somewhat secure down there. But being separated from reality, we grow more guilty and less adequate to meet the next moment.

What you need is mental distance, and I can show you how.

Here is a link to the new Easy Free meditation. It is only 6 minutes long and easy to learn. Check it out.

Many good people and good Christians would like to believe these verses and would like to cast their cares, and worries upon the Lord, but they don't quite know how. If you will permit me to be so bold, I think I can help you with this disconnect.

The Benefits of Presence of Mind

Learn the simple art of being prepared in advance with understanding and patience.


 The soul advanced thus far, has no need of any other preparation than its quietude: for now the presence of God, during the day, which is the great effect, or rather continuation of prayer, begins to be infused, and almost without intermission.

The soul certainly enjoys transcendent blessedness, and finds that God is more intimately present to it than it is to itself. The only way to find him is by introversion. No sooner do the bodily eyes close, than the soul is wrapt in prayer: it is amazed at so great a blessing, and enjoys an internal converse, which external matters cannot interrupt.

 2. The same may be said of this species of prayer, that is said of wisdom: "all good things come together with her." (Wisdom vii. 11.)

 For virtues flow from this soul into exercise with so much sweetness and facility, that they appear natural to it, and the living spring within breaks forth abundantly into a facility for all goodness, and an insensibility to all evil.

 3. Let it then remain faithful in this state; and beware of choosing or seeking any other disposition whatever than this simple rest.
