10 Verses for When You Are Worried
1.) Remember to pray. Prayer leads to peace.
“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.”
2.) Do not let your heart be troubled. Do not be afraid.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let NOT your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
3.) Throw your burdens on God.
“Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.”
4.) Trust that God is leading you on the path that is best for you.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
5.) When you feel fear welling up inside of you – stop – put your trust in God.
“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”
6.) You are not alone. God is with you.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
7.) Have faith. God will take care of you.
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 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 which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?”
8.) Each day has enough trouble so stay focused on today and do not worry about tomorrow.
“Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
9.) God is with you.
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
10.) Call on the Lord. He is on your side!
“Out of my distress I called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me free. 6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”
