Bible Verses to help with anxiety
Discover solace and calm in Scripture that gives you a future and hope.
Jeremiah 17:7 -Happy Are Those That Trust In The Lord
“Happy are those who trust in the Lord, who rely on the Lord.”
The man who trusts in the Lord believes Him in everything, trusting His promises and His Word and not allowing situations, sights, emotions, or sensations to frighten or disturb him.
This passage calls us to stop worrying and stop being anxious. It calls us to trust in the Lord, and we will be blessed When His children rely entirely on Him and hold fast to His Word.
Being sure of the existence of things we cannot see requires trusting and hoping in the Lord. The person who puts his faith and hope in God is blessed.
Psalm 23:4 – God Is Our Protector
“Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no danger because you are with me. Your rod and your staff — they protect me.”
We are urged to accept the Lord as our shepherd in this verse. The valley of the shadow of death becomes the route to life and serenity when we put our trust in the Lord and let go of our worries.
The Son of Righteousness illuminates the way of all who have turned into sons of light, flooding the valley of profound darkness and despair with light and hope.
And let us trust God in all the disappointments and difficulties we may experience as we walk the road He has planned for us throughout life: “Because You are with me. My solace comes from Thy rod and staff.”
Psalm 139:23 – God Knows Our Thoughts
“Examine me, God! Look at my heart! Put me to the test! Know my anxious thoughts!”
This verse reminds us that God knows every element of our lives and is concerned with even the smallest details. This vast and mighty God has prepared every day of our lives and has searched out every inner thought and deep desire.
May we learn more about the beautiful attributes of our awesome God and get a better sense of His omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence.
May us grow in our understanding of the beautiful qualities of our great God, who alone is the source of grace and truth, mercy and love, peace and hope, and eternal life.
Psalm 55:22 – Cast Your Burdens On The Lord
“Cast your burden on the Lord — he will support you! God will never let the righteous be shaken!”
We are constantly reminded throughout God’s Word not to fear because the Lord our God is with us no matter where we go.
Today, we are increasingly overpowered by external terrors, which cause many fears and anxieties. We are also urged to put all our worries on Him since He genuinely cares about us.
Let’s meditate on this verse and surrender our worries to the Lord, for He has promised to sustain us if we do.
Isaiah 40:31 -Put Your Hope In The Lord
“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength; they will fly up on wings like eagles; they will run and not be tired; they will walk and not be weary.”
Challenges in life devastate even the most resilient individuals; fears and anxiety eat at the bravest of human hearts, and young men become weak and worn out.
Because they rely solely on human resources and their inner power, which is insufficient protection from life’s storms, they trip and fall.
The power of God will lift us on eagle’s wings and carry us through life’s stresses and strains when a believer indeed identifies with his Saviour and relies solely on Christ’s abilities for his journey through life.
At that point, God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness.
Psalm 34:4 – Seek The Lord, And He Will Answer
“I sought the Lord and he answered me. He delivered me from all my fears.”
The man or woman who seeks the Lord will find Him if they pursue Him with all their heart, the Lord has stated numerous times.
But all too frequently, we overlook that we seek Him because He initially sought us. Let’s seek the Lord quickly because He will hear and respond to us, be with us, and ease our concerns.

But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
Psalms 3:3 KJV
There are times in everyone’s lives when it feels like everyone is against them. People put someone down at work, and when that person gets home, his family despises him.
There seems to be trouble everywhere he turns. The most important thing to remember is that God is with you and will act as your shield.
Let God’s love surround you when your thoughts rage war; God will shield your life from anything that is not directly in His will.
He will help you rise. He will uphold and support you through all your adversities, worries, and storms.

He will never leave or forsake us and always be there for us, especially when we need Him most.
Hebrews 13:6 – The Lord is your helper
So we say with confidence,“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”
This verse illustrates that we can only be content when we put our faith in God to provide for our wants and security.
Strangely, we tend to place our trust and satisfaction in things much less dependable and stable than God Himself.
When we have such confidence in the accuracy of God’s Word via faith, despite the appearance of things to the contrary, we find that life takes on the proper perspective.
Why should we be afraid? Let’s say this verse aloud as we stand up with our chests complete. Why should we succumb to anxiousness when we have faith in God?
Romans 8:31 – No man can defeat us when God is for us
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
This Scripture serves as a reminder that no matter the trials life hands us, the obstacles we encounter on our journey through this world, or the challenges we may be faced with, God, in His grace, gather them all up and uses them for our ultimate good and His greater glory.
Even better, He has granted us access to His heavenly throne of grace, where mercy can seek assistance when it is needed.

He is our security and guardian. Our assurance of God’s comfort, support, and deliverance comes through prayer and the Holy Spirit.
We will be delivered through death to share in eternity with God or given from the end to serve God powerfully. When our future and fate are in God’s hands, we will never be in trouble.
1 Corinthians 6:12 – You will not be enslaved
“All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be enslaved by anything.
1 Corinthians 6:12
We are released from the constraints of legalistic rituals and religious requirements because of the freedom we have in Christ. Still, we must be careful to avoid becoming entangled in any activity that would hold us captive or allowing it to become an obsession in our lives.
. We must resist letting fear control us. We must take great care to prevent the freedom we cherish from becoming legalistic or being used as an excuse to judge others for engaging in activities from which we choose to abstain.
Bible Verses to help with social anxiety
I understand if the prospect of mingling makes your palms sweaty or if you’d prefer to stay in your pajamas and watch Netflix in bed instead of traveling to a new location where you’ll have to mix with strangers for an undisclosed period.
I also experience social anxiety, but thanks to God, I’ve come a long way. As long as I’ve been social, I’ve battled social anxiety. It isn’t perfect.
The main issue is that it prevents us from having the community we want and need while also engulfing us in dread and worry to the point where we have secluded ourselves and constructed barriers to defend ourselves from invisible dangers.
Fortunately, the Bible is packed with inspired passages from God that will inspire you to act and give you the strength to live free from the bonds of societal anxiety and dread.
Proverbs 29:25 – Trust in the Lord and be safe.
“The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.”
The consequences of man’s fear are a trap that ensnares the soul and leads to disillusionment and anxiety. But faith, which is strangely sometimes referred to as “the fear of the Lord,” is the opposite of fear.
Faith in the Lord declines as man’s fear and anxiety about the future rise. However, fear is banished when confidence remains steadfast in God’s promises.
When you rely on someone or something other than the Lord, troubles, pain, disillusionment, and hopelessness follow. However, the individual who relies on the Lord will be exalted and blessed, as “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of understanding.”
John 14:27 – Don’t succumb to fear
“I leave the gift of peace with you- my peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but my perfect peace. Don’t yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts- instead, be courageous!”
Let us focus on Jesus as we confront the growing chaos and disarray that pervade this broken world and trust that when our minds are fixed on Him, God will keep us perfectly at rest.
By clinging to the reality of the beautiful gospel of God and placing our faith in His infallible Word, let us take to heart His priceless words of consolation.
Psalm 118:6 – The Lord is with you
“The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.”
when the Lord is on our side; we do not fear because he is with us. Therefore, our enemies will not triumph over us, and we will not be put to shame.
Joshua 1:9 – Be strong
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Those who put their faith in the Lord’s Word will find his precepts neither problematic nor tedious. Those called by His name do not see God’s commands as unattainable or impractical.
We are to immerse ourselves in the Bible, think about its promises, and put our faith in its truth.
We are to trust the Lord, believe what He has said, and steadfastly maintain the faith that was once given to the saints.
Proverbs 3:5 – Trust in God
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.”
In addition to being a good and helpful task, trusting the Lord eliminates the negative aspects of dread and uncertainty, keeps us steadfast through life’s storms and stressors, and replaces self-confidence with a trusting “God-confidence.”
To put aside one’s desires and imagination to accomplish the Lord’s will is to trust Him with all of one’s heart.
Trusting the Lord is accepting His Word as true and accurate and living according to that understanding.
Bible Verses to help a child with anxiety
Anxiety and fear are genuine (and frequent) aspects of life, and it doesn’t take a gloomy holiday filled with fake ghosts and eerie movies to remind us of that. Perhaps this explains why many scriptures in the Bible discuss anxiety and give us consolation when anxious.
The following passages are excellent to have on hand when a child is experiencing fear or anxiety. Try reading and praying these passages aloud as a family after printing, texting, or emailing them.
Proverbs 18:10 – Run to God and be saved
“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.”
Since He is everything we require in existence, God revealed His name to Moses as “I AM that I AM.” One lovely image of the Lord is that of a Strong Tower, “into which the godly run and are safe.” What an invaluable assurance for all of God’s children.
Let us rush to Jesus, our Strong Tower, knowing that He is the only one who can provide us with protection, serenity, and strength.
Psalm 56:3 – God is a trusted protector
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
When you are incredibly and genuinely terrified. How do you behave? Put your confidence and trust in God when you are experiencing fear.
Your answer should be faith. That is, having faith in or trust in God. Faith trusts the Lord by choosing to pray, sing, and learn rather than worry, fret, and run away.
Psalm 27:14 – Wait for the salvation of God
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
David has learned throughout his life that we have nothing to fear when God is our light and our salvation.
We are to have a strong will and extraordinary bravery in Him. We are to keep trust and optimism, accompanied by heartfelt thanks, even while surrounded by challenges and danger. We must wait for the Lord.
We must rely on the Lord and His enormous power to keep us strong. We must look to JESUS with bravery, and in doing so, we will find that He is not only our life’s strength but also our Christian walk’s light and our salvation.
Zephaniah 3:17 – God is a mighty warrior
The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”
Because He is the God of peace and His peace is a peace that surpasses all understanding, God desires that all of His children seek Him out, come to Him, be close to him, rest in him, and dwell in His truth.
He yearns to pour forth His love, peace, joy, and hope on everyone who trusts in His Word and knows He blesses those who seek Him assiduously.
It is a blessing to fully comprehend that God shouts joy over His small flock and rejoices with gladness over His offspring.
2 Timothy 1:7 – Dont be timid
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7
We all require sound judgment and mental discipline. Still, we cannot cultivate these qualities via self-effort, physical struggle, or extra-biblical training programs or webinars.
The promise of God to everyone whose mind is fixed on Christ is that they will experience an unfathomable inner peace that exceeds understanding as they set their eyes on Jesus and voluntarily submit to the ongoing rebuking and child-training work of the Holy Spirit within.
Anxiety is the propensity to worry and experience fear. It’s that nagging sensation you get when you look at a hopeless scenario and feel helpless.
Anxiety and despair are prevalent in our world. The reality is that God is your most significant support in the universe. The Lord hears your screams, and He longs to save you.
