Instead of worrying, stand on God’s Word

“Be strong and courageous. Be not afraid or dismayed…for there is…with us…our God to help us.” 2Ch 32:7-8 AMPC


Have you lost your sense of peace? Is your mind besieged with worry? If so, begin to program your thinking with these Bible promises—write them down, carry them with you, and read them regularly: (1) “The Lord…watches over you…stands beside you…keeps you from all harm…watches over your life…keeps watch…as you come and go” (Ps 121:5-8 NLT). (2) “Those who know your name trust in you, for you…have never forsaken those who seek you” (Ps 9:10 NIV). (3) “Our fears for today…worries about tomorrow…even the powers of hell…nothing in all creation will…separate us from the love of God” (Ro 8:38-39 NLT). (4) “They will fight against you, but…not prevail…for I am with you to save…and deliver you” (Jer 15:20 NKJV). (5) “You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and…rest in safety” (Job 11:18 NIV). (6) “I will lie down in peace and sleep, for though I am alone…Lord, you will keep me safe” (Ps 4:8 TLB). (7) “In the world you have…distress and frustration; but…[take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]!…I have…[deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you]” (Jn 16:33 AMPC). (8) “Be not afraid or dismayed…for the battle is not yours, but God’s” (2Ch 20:15 AMPC). (9) “Fear not…When you pass through the waters…they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned” (Isa 43:1-2 NKJV). (10) “I will rescue you…declares the Lord; you will not be given into the hands of those you fear” (Jer 39:17 NIV).
