Anxiety, though subtle, often serves as a fertile ground for other misfortunes in a man’s life. People get anxious for various reasons, minor or major. However, the consequences can be disastrous. Traumatic events such as losses, accidents, deaths, heartbreaks, marital and economic distress, bankruptcy, debts, fears, and so on, are the root causes of anxiety.
Spiritually, victims of anxiety suffer from loneliness and separation from God.
Whatever the cause of your anxieties, remember, God did not promise us a trouble-free life as Christians. Randers, He promised to be with us in the midst of it and also deliver us from it (John 16:33b; Psalms 34:17,19). The Psalmist was a man of many troubles and woes, often overwhelmed with problems. In all, he leant to lean on God as his saving grace (Psalms 94:16).
Jesus is calling for every weary and troubled person to come to Him. He promised them rest from their troubles (Matthew 11:28-30). In John 14:1, He expressly declared that we should not let our hearts be troubled, rather we should believe in Him. Being anxious therefore implies that you don’t believe in God to take care of your problems.
Throughout the Scriptures, God gave promises of taking care of His children (Psalms 23:1-3; Isaiah 41:10; Jeremiah 29:11). He will give you beauty for ashes, garment of praise in place of spirit of heaviness (Isaiah 61:3). What a wonderful divine exchange!
Paul wrote from his prison room. Instead of being downcast and consumed with fear and worry, he was in high spirit and could write to the brethren, giving them words of encouragement; “Rejoice, and again I say rejoice.” “Be anxious for nothing…!” He exhorted us to take our anxieties to God in prayer with thanksgiving (Philippians 4:6-7). And the peace of God shall envelop our lives. This is a total package and the best way to overcome anxiety.
