Worry and stress can trigger a whole host of negative health issues. We are also told not to fear 365 times throughout the Holy Bible. That just happens to be once a day for the entire year. Coincidence? We think not. So how do we stop worrying? One of the best practices to implement into our daily routine is to read (and meditate on) Scripture–the healing Word of God. Scripture, however, is only transformational when it is believed. Challenge yourself to grow in faith by adopting every Word God speaks as truth…because it is. Belief is how lives are transformed.
Here are 7 best Bible Verses to combat worry and stress.
1) Philippians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the Peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
2) Isaiah 26:3
You will keep in perfect peace, those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You.
3) Psalm 91:1-2
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.“
4) John 14:27
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.
5) Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
6) Psalm 34:4
I sought the Lord, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.
Read and re-read these promises to you.
May God bless and keep you always.
