How to overcome worry biblically

Philippians 4:6-7

Do not worry about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Be anxious for nothing

“Be anxious for nothing, 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 minds through Christ Jesus.”

These verses from Philippians are a great reminder that we can trust God with our anxiety, and He will give us peace. We are also reminded to be thankful for all things. Our anxiety dissipates when we can focus on God’s goodness and faithfulness.

Pray with thanksgiving

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

When we worry, we are usually anxious about something we think may happen in the future. Worrying robs us of our peace and joy because we live in fear instead of faith. But scripture tells us not to worry – instead, we are to pray.

Prayer is how we communicate with God. It is how we tell Him our concerns and ask for His help. And when we pray with thanksgiving, it shows that we trust God and His promises. When we are thankful for what He has already done, it helps us to trust Him for what He will do in the future.

The peace of God is something that goes beyond our understanding. It is a peace that can only come from Him. And when we have His peace in our hearts and minds, it will guard us against worry and fear.

Let your requests be made known to God

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, through prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 5:7

Cast all your anxieties on him because he cares for you. It’s easy to worry. We live in an uncertain world, and many things are out of our control. But as Christians, we can find comfort in knowing that God is in control. We say we don’t trust God to care for us when we worry.

Cast all your anxiety on God

1 Peter 5:7 says, “Cast all your anxiety on God because he cares for you.” This is one of the most well-known verses about worry, and it’s a great reminder that we can give our worries to God.

When we worry, we usually try to control a situation that is out of our control. Worrying doesn’t change the situation, but it does change us. Worry can lead to anxiety, stress, and even depression.

The best way to deal with worry is to give it to God. When we cast our anxieties on him, we trust him instead of worrying about the situation. We also focus on God’s character instead of our circumstances.

God is sovereign, and he knows what’s best for us. He is also faithful and will never leave us or forsake us. We can trust him with our worries because he cares for us deeply.

Because He cares for you

Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:7

This verse reminds us that we can overcome worry by casting our cares on God. When we worry, we tell God that we don’t trust Him to care for us. But God is faithful and has promised never to leave or forsake us. So when we cast our anxieties on Him, we can rest assured that He will take care of us.

Matthew 6:25-34

Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:25-34 not to worry about tomorrow because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. We need to live one day at a time.

Do not worry about tomorrow

Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Seek first the kingdom of God

“Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow, reap, or store away in barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you, by worrying, add a single hour to your life?

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon, in all his splendor, was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ The pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows you need them. But seek his kingdom and righteousness first, and all these things will also be given to you.”

And all these things will be added to you

“Therefore, I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or 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, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you, by worrying, can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, and yet I say to you that even Solomon was not arrayed like one of these in all his glory. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things, the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness first, and all these things shall be added to you.”
