Scriptures Against Worry

The following is a list of scriptures on worry. Use them when worry and anxiety are attempting to come in.  Remember, most of the time worry only means worry, and not the real probability of calamity.  Fight anxiety and worry with all you have; they can lead to a loss of hope and then depression. The war is in our head. All Scriptures are from the King James Version.

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.

1 Peter 5:6-7

6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Psalm 55:22

Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Isaiah 26:3-4

3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Philippians 4:19

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Matthew 6:24-34

24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

25 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?

26 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?

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

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

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

30 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?

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

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

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

34 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.

1 Corinthians 14:33

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

  1. There’s an LED flash as well as the camera also supports video recording at
    720p and 30 FPS. There are innumerable advantages offered by the LED light bar as in comparison with other alternatives like
    xenon lamps and halogen light bars. Led bars lights You can go for 6 ‘ 12’ light bars comprising of half twelve LEDs
    assembled together.

    The simple light bar will offer you good 360 degree lighting
    and visibility and definately will also present you with
    special effects and around 75 flashes each minute. Usually thermally efficient plastic with impressive tensile strength
    or extruded aluminium is used for your outer casing or housing of those mini bars.

  2. I have been called a failure throughout out my life n sometimes I feel like I can’t do it anymore because all my efforts are not seen. I can’t bear seeing my parents and family’s disappointed an hearts full of hurt because of me. That makes me hurt even more. To the point of my parents saying they don’t know wat to do with me.

    It really hurts hearing mother saying I always pray about you to God but everything becomes worse. I feel I’m not strong for all this and giving up especially the past days.

    Today with the help of this site I told myself to get up and to keep pushing and have a deaf ear for all negativity and forgive.

    thank you

  3. Hello Paulette, I pray all is well with you. God is good all of the time. He gave His only son Jesus Christ who was crucified and suffered so much pain for our sins. God knows your pain. He loves and wants greater for your life. If you have not done so, commit your life to Christ, and let Him love on you and comfort you. Also, get into a Bible believing church to fellowship, and inform a Pastor or Minister of your feelings so that one can pray with you and follow up with you. A doctor’s visit to discuss depression is also important. Thoughts of suicide is a serious mental health risk. Satan is the author of all confusion and desires to see you down trodden. Be Healed and Blessed Paulette. Love in Christ Jesus, Evelyn

  4. When I’m down I drown myself in gospel music. I also go to church as much as possible. God got plans for your life and the devil is trying to robe you of that by making you think taking your own life is the answer. If you were living for the devil why would he even mess with you ? Evaluate your life and then answer the question. Who do you live to please?

  5. You did the best thing by giving it all to God, but I know all so well what you are facing. My son is 13 and has ADD, ADHD, and OCD. For the OCD he is on respidal 0.5 mg and it helps but he is also on meds for his ADD ADHD.

  6. Abr,
    I know I’m a tad bit late on this reply, but couldn’t pass it up when I read your comment.
    I’m sorry you guys are going through this!
    Meds work for some, but for others they make things worse. I refuse meds for depression or anxiety or any of that, but then many other say they work.
    Just be there for your child. Let them know that you care and they have people in their life there for them. Also, find someone else (therapist, pastor) who can also be there for your child, because sometimes it’s comforting knowing that even non related people care.
    Don’t punish to harshly if you are going to punish at all.
    Most importantly, and it seems you have a good understanding of this, lift this up to the Father. He gives us rest in times of trouble. His plan is greater than ours.
    I am praying!

  7. My husband and I have been facing some huge trials regarding our son. He was diagnosed with autism when he was 3. Now he’s 17 and lately he has been displaying behavior in which he hurts himself. We feel that meds will only makes things worse. We’ve done so much research and there is no medicine that will cure his o,c,d, behavior. All side effects are bad. I have been worried about this more so recently, but have lifted this up to prayer to our Lord. Thank you for sending the list of scriptures regarding worry and stress. I believe that the Lord is working with us because my son can sense when we are upset, worried or anxious. I think the Lord wants us to give this situation all to Him, And until we do, He will not be able to intervene and correct my son’s behavior. Please let us know what you think. Any and all suggestions are welcomed.

  8. I have read all of the comments and can relate and empathize with all of you. I also am going through some hard times. I will pray for all of you and ask if you could do the same for me.Peace, love and empathy and may God bless you.

  12. My husband boss could not pay him in over 3 months, we are on the verge of getting evicted. I am so worried and full of anxiety, and almost have lost all hope. Please pray for my family, thank you. Sandy

  13. I accept the lord as my savior and leading to live right and at the same time waiting for my boyfriend to see if he is getting more charges. He has 90 days to serve now as we speak. We both want a healthy life and have Godbin our hearts. Prayers would be greatly appreciated that his court date goes well so we can move forward n live the life that God has intended for us

  14. Take heart and know that the Lord is with you and that others care. You are never alone, and you can cast your fears away (give them to the Lord who chose you from before time, and Who has known you from before you were in your mother’s womb). I haven’t been in your predicament exactly, but have been abandoned by an unloving wife, who came back only to leave again. Stay close to the Lord, and He’ll take care of all of this. You are much loved!

  16. My son is having some serious struggles in his life. He has been running from God for some time . Possibility of incarceration for 24 months. That hasn’t been set yet! He is a good son, but has made some bad decisions. Was married to a very mean vindictive woman! Court system is so broken!!! They know his X wife is a liar, that constantly causes trouble at court house. Entire courthouse knows that she is one crazy woman. Prosecuting attorney is afraid of what he will look like instead of making the right decision in my sons case!!! It’s bizarre how the courts can be more worried about what they as an individual would look like as opposed to doing what is right

      Jennifer – Seek God earnestly on what to do and be open to receiving the courage and ability to ‘get out.’ It may not be God keeping you in the marriage but fear and intimidation. Getting free is tough. Look at what Moses had to go through. Evil controlling people and powers don’t give up easy. Seek God hard, He will lead you where you need to go. Don’t count on God changing him, but it could happen. You and your kids deserve better. Do it for them. We love you. Rex

We tried to do well in helping other some years ago, only to have it used against us and so in debt to ourselves and another.
