Scriptures to Conquer Anxiety

Scriptures to defeat anziet

Fear. Terror. Dread. Anxiety. Worry. Concern. Apprehension.

Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

Anxiety is all around us. Many of us battle with this relentless feeling.

I struggled with anxiety for most of my life. Anxiety is a hopeless emotion. Most the time I could not even figure out what was causing the emotion. This crippling feeling prevented me from living in hope. There were good days, and then there were the days that I felt like I was going completely CRAZY. I had days I thought my anxiety would be the death of me. Hopeless and broken I searched for anything that would make this feeling subside. I was prescribed drugs that just medicated the real problem. They covered the pain for a while, until my anxiety came back even worse. The medicine was just a Band-Aid on the real wound-my heart.

After I got to know Jesus, the anxiety was just gone. It was a miracle.

I struggled with anxiety for so long I thought it was part of me, and He just took it away. Hope and light pushed out the fear and anxiety. I do not have anxiety everyday anymore. I do not live in the constant state of fear.

But I still have my moments of weakness. And that is why I am writing this today. Too many of us battle this overwhelming feeling. I have moments when I obsess or worry about circumstances. I fall back in my old human ways and I have to check my heart and my head.

We are called to walk in His spirit of Love. So why does this seem so hard sometimes? Why do we go back to our old nature? Why do we have moments of anxiety and fear?

What do we do when anxiety  comes upon us?

  1. -Remember. I remind myself I am only human. He died because I am a sinner. If I try to be perfect then why did God send His son to die for me? We live in a broken world, this is not our home. Jesus died to set us free from sin. So when I feel like this I need to RUN to Him.
  2.  Reflect. The bible tells us we are going to have trials and tribulations. 1 Peter 4:12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. Anxiety and fear are tools of the enemy. Just knowing this can give me peace, because we already have the victory. I need to reflect on why I am worried. Is there anything I can do about the way I am feeling? Or is there something I did to cause this feeling (sin)? In most cases, I am anxious over something I have NO control over.
  3. Confess. Words are powerful. Speaking words into your life can be life changing. I need to open my mouth and speak. Speak them out of your mouth and sow them into your heart. It is not by your own power but by the power of His Spirit. Speaking words into life can change everything. His word is powerful. So let’s be people who speak VICTORY.

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. – Hebrews 4:12

Feeling anxious? Feeling fearful? Speak these scriptures into your life. These scriptures will conquer your anxiety.

There is one beautiful thing about the battle you are in right now. This battle can draw you closer to your heavenly father. The enemy uses it for evil, but God can use it for good. Run to His comfort. Run to His peace. Rest in His promise.

Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance. Romans 5:3 Amplified Bible (AMP)

  1. Aly this spoke to me in ways you can’t imagine and only God could create! Thank you. This was exactly what I needed tonight and what was in my prayers and on my heart this week. I wrote a few verses down to reflect on again. I struggle with anxiety immensely and it is my daily prayer.
    Thankful that God is moving in you and put this on your heart to bring to me too!
    Love the blog, keep it up!
    Love you!

  2. Thank you for writing this. These are the same things I have learned in my battle with anxiety and I’m grateful for your obedience to write them out so that they may serve as a reminder when I am unable to remind myself. May God bless you 🙂 <3

  3. I have just recently started to struggle with severe anxiety. To the point I did not want to leave my house or be away from my family fearing that something terrible would happen. Then tonight while talking to God, he so plainly said Do not fear. So I went on the search for a cute graphic as a visual reminder of this. Pinterest was my first resort where I came across your blog. Thank you for obeying God and sharing the gospel! I so needed this tonight! Sleeping with a peaceful heart laying all my worries at the feet of Jesus. <3

  4. I needed this! Still struggling with built up pressures of life and the worrying over the what ifs. Right now, I have myself so worked up and incapable of relaxing so I can sleep. But I know God is great and led me to your pin on Pinterest. I will be reading these over and over again.

  5. Thank you so much! I have been suffering from anxiety for about 2/3 years now… Seems like it gets worse, but then gets better but then gets worse again… I spose it peaks just like anything. Good & bad days. But in the last 2/3 weeks it has peaked again & I have been so anxious… Tonight I felt physically weird, light headed, uneasy stomach, tingly hands & I started getting anxious about that, about being unwell, but I’m unwell because I’m anxious (go figure) I listening to some praise & worship, had a cry out to God & stumbled across your pin… He sent me here, to see this. I have now saved it on my home screen on my phone to always refer back to! I then read some bible stories to my children, which i haven’t done in a few weeks, and every single story related to how I was feeling & the end result in every story- was trust in God. It was amazing. I feel so much better now! Going to sleep with an easy heart & laying all my problems on God tonight. Thank you ❤️

  6. Thank you for this!! You really validated something that I have struggled with for so many years. I am a believer and have my weak days. I’ve had doctors repeatedly encourage me to go on meds and they looked at me like I was crazy when i told them it was just a band-aid, not the solution. It is a heart issue. Thank you for the many verses- I will have this handy to make notes in my bible when I need them during a weak point. God bless you and your ministry. <3

    1. Thank you! I am glad God used this post. I find those meds only numb us out from the good feelings as well as the bad ones! Praying God gives you peace!

  7. Thank you for posting these bible versus, they are beautiful. I refuse to mask my anxiety issues with drugs and like all of you and have placed myself in God’s Beautiful & capable hands. The power of prayer works like a miracle. I have experienced God’s miracle first hand and I’m on the road to recovery through my strong faith. In a moment of panic pray and feel God who is always there holding your right hand❤️

    1. Amen! The power of prayer WORKS! Thank you Jesus for your mighty power. Thank you for sharing your story with me! I love hearing God working in your life.

  8. For the past weeks I have been struggling with anxiety, fear, and questioning my faith. After a couple of months of having my beautiful baby girl. I am struggling when I need to be the most joyful. It is hard but I know that with God I will be better than I have ever been. Deep down inside I know this is a test. Thank you so much for this post. It is 6am and unable to sleep but after reading some of your blog posts and comments I feel calm and for a long time my chest feels rest. Thank you! May the Lord bless you. <3

  9. I am in the process of getting to know Him. I have known about him all my life, but until recently I haven’t really bothered to form a relationship with him. Anxiety is a huge issue I deal with daily and tonight (as has been the pattern for the last couple of weeks when I think of him) I turned to prayer. I just wanted to hold my Bible and speak to Him. Then it occurred to me that I could possibly find verses to make me feel better and I found this blog on Pinterest. Thank you for writing this! It’s helping me get to know God and his word.
