He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love, (1 John 4:8).
God is love, and He loves you. He’s promised to never leave us, nor forsake us. He protects, comforts, and helps us in all our distresses because He loves us. Knowing the width and depth of His love helps us overcome anxiety. Despite what you face in life, don’t doubt God’s love for you.
My beautiful sisters-in-Christ, you do not have to succumb to anxiety. Jesus tells us in John 14:1 not to let our hearts be troubled. He beckons to us through His word, offering peace, hope, and comfort when we’re feeling anxious.
We’ve included 10 verses here to help you, but you aren’t limited to only 10. In His love, grace, and mercy toward us, God gave us 66 books full of peace, hope, and comfort. Search the Bible for scriptures, write them on index cards, carry them with you, and memorize them to help you combat anxiety.
And remember, God didn’t give anxiety to you. He gave you power, love, and a sound mind. Walk in them.
