In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, moments of tranquility can be hard to come by. Between the school runs, managing household tasks and juggling your career, there can be whispers of doubt, fear and anxious thoughts that start to creep in.

Anxiety can often weigh heavy on our hearts, cloud our judgment, and hinder our ability to find peace.

It’s in these challenging times that you can harness the power of words.

In this post, i’ll share 30 bible verses that speak about anxiety. I’ll also share some affirmations based on these verses. You can speak these affirmations over your life when feelings of worry and anxiety start to creep in.

Dealing With Anxiety

If we’re all being honest, I think we’d admit that we all know what it feels like to be anxious. Anxiety is normal.

While some people are diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, it doesn’t have to present that way for you to know when you’re having anxious thoughts.

Imagine you’re on the eve of a big exam or a nerve-wracking job interview. Your chest feels tight, your heart is racing, and that overwhelming sense of unease sets in. It’s like a storm in your mind.

But, here’s the thing- even in the midst of those challenges, God has given us a way out.

The Power Of Yours Words

Your words are more powerful than you may think.

The bible says that “Life and death are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21)

I think about that often because our words really have the power to give life and also the power to tear down. Knowing this, we really should be careful about the words we speak.

For people dealing with fear and anxiety, speaking life giving words over their lives and situation can really help them to experience peace in the midst of the challenges.

Biblical Affirmations: What It Is & What It Isn’t

Christian affirmations are rooted in Gods word and in biblical principles.

These affirmations are not about woo woo practices, empty repetitions or wishful thinking. Rather, biblical affirmations are decelerations rooted in the teachings of the Bible. They reflect God’s promises and offer us as believers a source of strength and reassurance in times of anxiety.

Biblical affirmations involve intentionally aligning one’s thoughts and words with God’s Word. When you do this, you can foster a mindset that transcends fear and doubt.

While some Christians express concerns about affirmations, fearing that they might replace genuine faith with a reliance on self-generated positivity, it is crucial to clarify that biblical affirmations are not a substitute for faith.

In my experience these scripture based affirmations actually serve as a tool to enhance and deepen one’s faith by internalizing the biblical truths that combat anxiety.

In the same way we repeat the words of our favourite worship song and affirm the words, biblical affirmations provide a structured and intentional way to internalize the truths found in Scripture.

When approached with a sincere heart and an authentic desire to connect with God, biblical affirmations can become a valuable part of your journey to overcome anxiety.
