Anxiety is our worst enemy. It steals our peace, drains us of vitality, and sows seeds of illness and just about every other form of misery. When you worry, you torment yourself; you are basically doing the devil’s job for him.
Anxiety is a feeling of fear, apprehension, or nervousness about what’s going to happen. Anxiety is the opposite of faith. Another word for anxiety is worry. The anxiety that you feel over everyday worries can wear you out; it may bring on chronic fatigue and illness.
Worry accomplishes nothing. It does not solve the problem, it only makes it worse. The word worry means “tearing at you.” And that is exactly what worry does: it tears you apart
How can we avoid the plague of anxiety? By giving it no opportunity to act. By putting our total trust in God and believing His Word for what it is. Truth.
How To Deal With Anxiety As a Christian?
Trusting God is one of the keys to a worry-free life. Having faith in God is an antidote to worry. Your heavenly Father cares about you, and you are not forgotten. Sometimes trusting a promise from God seems too hard to believe. However, this is an area where God keeps His word. He has a track record of keeping promises and of bringing them to pass. He will not fail you, either now or in this matter.
This is a good way to get through the day. Praying without ceasing and not being anxious are strategies for success in life too. Turn whatever worries you have into an opportunity to pray.
