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.

    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

    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!

    I need prayers for my mom…. Her kidneys are affected because she has diabetes for 25 years now and the dr. said it’s the complication of diabetes. I love her so much and I don’t want to lose her.

Im taking care of them both my parents dad had a mild stroke last july but his blood test are way better than my mom.

    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

    I need some prayers I am married with 6 children and my husband keeps commiting adultery over the 11years we have been together my kids are 4 yrs to 18 yrs I don’t know what to do tonight we had a argument about money so he never came home I know what he is doing I am unemployed scared but I can’t keep allowing this please pray God gives me courage and strength to make Changes in my life

      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

    Just a little over a week ago I discovered that I was 5 weeks pregnant. It was unplanned and im concerned that me nor the father are able to financially take care of this baby. Ive been praying like crazy for us to both get a full time job with benefits. Im currently a temp contract worker and he’s works part time.. As much as I pray and plant my seeds of harvest, i know God would not put any burden on me that I cannot handle, but how can I overcome my fear of being unemployed, broke, a being a bad mother or homelessness? I want to keep this baby and I want us to succeed as parents so that this baby wont be without anything or see us struggle. Please help me.

    I left my head to to the Lord from this deep, deep hole that I have fallen into. 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. We have accepted this problem and have worked on paying back the other person hurt but the hole just seems to be growing and lately it feels likes its starting to cave in! God help me see some light, or a hand to help me climb out!
