Anxiety, worry and tension are some of the most destructive forces we can face today. They steal our strength and slowly undermine our faith, keeping us from maturing in the Lord. If we are to grow in our relationship with Jesus, we must discover God’s plan for freedom from the crippling cycle of anxiety. Philippians 4:6 says: “Do not worry about anything,” writes Paul, “but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God.” The underlying message here is very clear: Pray more. Give thanks more. And don’t focus on your anxiety.
