The cure for anxiety is peace. I know you might be reading this like duh, that's obvious. It definitely is, but it's my sincere prayer that we all really begin to choose peace, and the way that leads to it.
In Psalm 139:23 when we read that David prayed for GOD to lead him in "the way" everlasting after first knowing his anxious thoughts. It seems like it's the same "way" that's advised in Proverbs 3:5-6 when Solomon says GOD will direct our paths and make them straight, when we trust in Him with all of our heart.
Then in Philippians 4:8 Paul comes in and says: think about all the good, praise worthy stuff and the GOD of peace will be with you.
Ok then, Lord! You mean with me on this way, with me as I travel on this journey called life where so many things happen, but when I trust you, when I set my mind on you and your glory, and when I pray, then your peace will be with me?
That sounds like a winning plan. Focus on the fact that GOD loves us and not who doesn't "like" us or what seems to be working against us. #GodlyRelationshipGoals The win and the peace is in GOD's love and paying serious attention to it.
Here are some scriptures that mention exactly the power of doing overcoming anxiety GOD's way.
