Anxious and worried?
Anxious and worried? Quotes and verses for you –>
“Both in the secular environment and in church work, we are anxious about things that are better left in God’s hands. Worry always nips at the heels of faith and tries to drag it down.” ~ Jim Cymbala
“Do not be anxious about anything (Philippians 4:6). This is because we have a Father in heaven who is almighty, who loves His children as He loves His ‘one and only Son’ (John 3:16), and whose complete joy and delight is to continually assist them under all circumstances.” ~ George Mueller
“The presence of anxiety is unavoidable, but the prison of anxiety is optional.” ~ Max Lucado
“Worry is sin; a black, murderous, God-defying, Christ-rejecting sin; worry about anything, at any time whatever. We will never know victory over worry and anxiety until we begin to treat it as sin. For such it is, it is a deep-seated distrust of the Father, who assures us again and again that even the falling sparrow is in His tender care.” ~ Holocaust survivor Corrie Ten Boom
“Abram showed that when you have faith in God, you know God will take care of you no matter what someone else chooses. Faith lets other people do their thing without getting anxious and worried. It leaves its case in God’s hands.” ~ Jim Cymbala
“Faith deals with the invisible things of God. It refuses to be ruled by the physical senses. Faith is able to say, ‘You can do what you like, because I know God is going to take care of me. He has promised to bless me wherever he leads me.” ~ Jim Cymbala
“Fussing always ends in sin. We imagine that a little anxiety and worry are an indication of how really wise we are; it is much more an indication of how really wicked we are. Fretting springs from a determination to get our own way. Our Lord never worried and He was never anxious, because He was not ‘out’ to realize His own ideas; He was ‘out’ to realize God’s ideas. Fretting is wicked if you are a child of God. ‘Have you been bolstering up that stupid soul of yours with the idea that your circumstances are too much for God? Put all ‘supposing’ on one side and dwell in the shadow of the Almighty. Deliberately tell God that you will not fret about that thing. All our fret and worry is caused by calculating without God.” ~ Oswald Chambers
“Worry is a cycle of inefficient thoughts whirling around a center of fear.” ~ Corrie Ten Boom
“When the King rules your world, you cease to rule or worry. All worry dethrones God. All worrying makes you King and God incompetent. There is a King born in Bethlehem and on the throne. You can breathe.” ~ Ann Voskamp
“Worry is belief gone wrong. Because you don’t believe that God will get it right. Peace is belief that exhales.” ~ Ann Voskamp
“The one thing that keeps us from the possibility of worrying is bringing God in as the greatest factor in all our calculations.” ~ Oswald Chambers
“If we are obsessed by God, nothing else can get into our lives–not concerns, nor tribulations, nor worries. And now we understand why our Lord so emphasized the sin of worrying. How can we dare to be so absolutely unbelieving when God totally surrounds us? To be obsessed by God is to have an effective barricade against all the assaults of the enemy.” ~ Oswald Chambers
Which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span? Do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours]. Casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].” ~ Luke 12:25, Matthew 6:34, Philippians 4:6-7 (AMP), 1 Peter 5:7 (AMP)
That is beautiful and reassuring!
