God’s Promises for Your Every Need: Dealing with Worry

We all struggle with worrying, but maybe some of us worry too much about everything. I am one of those people who struggle with worrying about every little thing and sometimes, it can become too much to bear alone. If you are struggling with worry today, grab a notebook and pen to write down these quick scripture references to help you.

What to Do When You Feel Worried

  • “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” –1 Peter 5:7
  • “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.” –John 14:1
  • “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” –Philippians 4:6-7
  • “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.” –Colossians 3:15
  • “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” –Isaiah 26:3
  • “I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.” –Psalm 4:8
  • “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” –Philippians 4:19
  • “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” –Romans 8:6
  • “When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.” –Proverbs 3:24
  • “For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.” “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.” –Hebrews 4:3, 9
  • “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” –Psalm 119:165
  • “He that dwelleth 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 will I trust.” –Psalm 91:1-2
  • “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” –John 14:27

Matthew 6:25-34 teaches us to rely on God for everything. This passage of scripture teaches us to take no thought (worry) about tomorrow. When we have God in our lives, we don’t have to be consumed with worry because God is the One in control of everything. All we have to do is trust in Him.

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
