How to Calm Anxiety
Are you struggling to cope with anxiety? Do you find you’re anxious often? How do you calm your nervousness and apprehension? Don’t give into these feelings and run from the world. Millions of other people feel like you and are looking for an answer.
People have different temperaments and personalities, and some individuals undoubtedly have a tendency toward excessive anxiety. But God wants to help us at the exact places where we are
weak, and He wants to help you overcome this problem.
The key is to realize that nothing—not a single thing—takes God by surprise, because He knows all about your future. And when we are in His hands, then we don’t need to be anxious about the future either, because we know He is with us every step of the way. “Don’t be afraid, because I’m with you; don’t be anxious, because I am your God. I keep on strengthening you; I’m truly helping you. I’m surely upholding you with my victorious right hand” (Isaiah 41:10, ISV).
Want to calm your anxiety? First, commit your life to Jesus Christ by asking Him to come into your heart as your personal Lord and Savior. Next, turn to Him every day. Talk to Him daily and put each of your problems into His hands.
Let Him speak into your life. The Bible is His Word so make it part of your day and learn to trust the promises God has placed in it for you. God knows your weaknesses, anxiety and fears, but He will strengthen you as you learn to trust Him and thank Him.
“Rejoice in the Lord always … Do not be anxious 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 your minds In Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:4, 6-7).
Let this be your experience as you trust every part of your future into His loving hands.
Put your anxiety behind you and step toward Jesus today.
Step 1 – God loves you and has a plan for you!
Step 2 – People are sinful and separated from God.
Step 3 – God sent His Son to die for your sins!
Step 4 – Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?
"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
