Anxiety is a crippling condition that breeds doubt and fear in our lives which have no place in our hearts as believers. Today, I’m sharing 10 powerful scriptures to pray to overcome anxiety that you can meditate on, nourish your spirit with and build your faith.
With times being as they are, it is vital, now more than ever, to build ourselves up in the Word of Faith and trust that God cares for us. We have a choice as God’s children on whether or not we will walk in faith. It’s hard when we are struggling, especially with hard circumstances to choose to believe God’s Word, but He promises to care for us and our families if we will put our trust in Him.
I’ve made a free printable for you to download so that you can place these scriptures somewhere that you will see them daily. Read them, speak them, and pray them over your life and the lives of your loved ones.
One thing the Lord has always made clear to me in this life is that there is nothing firm to stand upon in this world, but His Word is always a firm and steady foundation. You can’t go wrong, ever, by sowing His Word! People try to build all kinds of things to safeguard themselves and their families from calamity, but without the Word and His Wisdom, it will be for naught.
Anxiety is often rooted in a lack of faith
And trust me, I am in favor of practical wisdom and I believe God is too, but we must always begin with His Word and seek His Wisdom in all things. God spoke to me once and told me that He cannot honor anything done in fear. He can only honor what is done in faith. So, you see, we must be diligent to build our faith daily so that He can guide us in safety and ease.
Disclaimer: There are those who suffer from clinical depression and anxiety that require medical help and medication. THERE IS NO SHAME in getting the help you need and in no way at all am I suggesting that a person just needs “more faith”. However, I also believe that our God is a healer and He wishes for us to be free from ALL anxiety. My hope is that the Word of God will produce healing in us as we seek Him first. If you are struggling with debilitating anxiety or depression, seek help as needed, and trust God to guide you.
God cannot honor anything done in fear. He can only honor what is done in faith.
My prayer for this season is that you will be encouraged and strengthened with His Word. That you will seek Him and His Wisdom concerning all things. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
