How to replace anxiety with peace.

Anxiety is a feeling and it's very common in our nature. However, anxiety can be dangerous if it's not treated correctly. There are many options in the world like psychologist or psychiatrists many people look for help. Looking for help is the right thing to do, but we must seek guidance and help in the word of God. In the bible and in our relationship with God we can find the solution to this problem. Let's learn a little about how to replace anxiety with peace.

There are many options in the world like psychologist or psychiatrists many people look for help. Looking for help is the right thing to do, but we must seek guidance and help in the word of God. In the bible and in our relationship with God we can find the solution to this problem. Let’s learn a little about how to replace anxiety with peace.

The word of God says in Philipians 4:6

Do not be anxious or worried about ANYTHING,

Anxiety is the equivalent of not trusting God. And in this verse we are called to not be worried about any thing. Nothing should be worrying us. Now, all the circumstances around us can lead us to that state if we don’t take care of it. When Paul says “anything” he means nothing without restrictions, no possibilities, no spaces, NOTHING!

Then, how we can replace or exchange the anxiety that invades us sometimes with a state of peace? The bible says that it is possible and give us a way. Philippians 4:6 says again:

Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.
PHILIPPIANS 4:6 AMP

How we do it?

We come to presence of God with prayer (that is our way of communicating with God, vital part of our relationship with Him). We express our petitions accompanied of thanksgiving (that is our way of asking God for His will to be done in us). Then, we make our requests known to God in a specific way.

All of this is part of an active life of prayer, we speak… We express… We make requests… We give thanks. This provides to us an outlet for anxiety. We liberated ourselves, we left the heavy burden that from the beginning we should not have carried. And instead of this, we receive peace that surpasses everything. Even if you are in the middle of the storm.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

May this be a way for all us who are in Christ to replace anxiety with the marvelous peace that ONLY God gives us.

Lead me in the Everlasting Way

Its 3:06 am and while I should be sleeping, I am here meditating in God’s word. Have you been talking to God recently? You know, sometimes the circumstances around us drained us, misleading us to other places rather than God’s presence. The way of the Lord is best, the guidance and lead of God in our lives is necessary. And, for that there must be a relationship with Him.

The way of the Lord is best, the guidance and lead of God in our lives is necessary. And, for that there must be a relationship with Him.

More than writing a post about a review, or about things I like, or about a few bible verses we should read, I’m here writing about some encouragement for you, because I have been encouraged by Him. Behind every blog there is a human being writing content to uplift others. That person also need some lifting up too.

While I was reading the book of Psalms I went directly to Psalms 139. A Psalm of David about God’s omniscience and omnipresence. It’s a powerful psalm about how God formed us, knows us, cares about us and lead us in the right path, because He already knows everything.

O Lord , you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up [my entire life, everything I do]; You understand my thought from afar.
PSALM 139:1‭-‬2 AMP

Knowing and internalizing that God knows everything about gives me peace. Gives me rest. Gives me a real and clear understanding about God’s character. I know that if you read this Psalm right now, you will receive peace. And even, your thoughts about yourself can change drastically. Because if there still a small amount of doubt about our existence and purpose in this life, clearly and powerfully that doubt will go away.

For You formed my innermost parts; You knit me [together] in my mother’s womb.
PSALM 139:13 AMP

If you need to rest, seek God. If you need answers, seek God. If you need guidance, seek God. If you need Him to take the lead in your life once and for all, seek God. Let God lead you in His ways, His everlasting way as David asked Him. All you have to do is seek, ask, knock and believe
