12 Bible Verses for When You Are Experiencing Anxiety

12 Bible Verses for When You Are Experiencing Anxiety

Life is full of anxious moments. Whether it’s worry about money, family, jobs, relationships, or world events, there are plenty of things that can disturb our peace. God knows this, and tells us hundreds of times in Scripture not to worry and not to be afraid.

If you are experiencing some anxiety in your life, here are some Bible verses to keep in mind to restore peace to your life. Write them down and put them somewhere you will see them every day, as a reminder that despite life’s worries, God is with you!

1. 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? (Matt 6:25-27)

2. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. (Phil 4:6

3. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence,“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” (Heb 13:5-6)

4. Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. (Matt 11:28-30)

5. Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (Prov 3:5-6)

6. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (John 14:27)

7. Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. (2 Thess 3:16)

8. Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. (Psalm 55:22)

9. An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. (Prov 12:25)

10Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. (1 Pet 5:7)

11. When I am afraid, I will trust in you. (Psalm 56:3)

12. But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:37-39)
