Overcoming Anxiety: 12 Powerful Truths from Scripture for Defeating Worry and Fear (Spiritual Growth by John Stange Book 6)
“Powerful, encouraging and helpful…”
Anxiety, worry and fear are powerful emotions that we all experience to one degree or another. During some seasons of life, these emotions may feel particularly strong and paralyzing. What can we do when we’re going through such a season? We can look to God’s Word for counsel.
God’s Word is filled with wisdom. The primary purpose of Scripture is to point our hearts toward Jesus and help us to realize that when we have Him, we have everything that we truly need. This is particularly true when we’re struggling with anxiety.
In this book, you will find a concise exposition of what the Scriptures say about anxiety as well as what we’re encouraged to do with worry and fear when we experience them. The content of this book is meant to be both encouraging and motivational as you seek the Lord’s help to overcome the anxiety that may presently seem to be overcoming you.
This book is not meant to be read once and then forgotten. It is organized into 12 helpful sections that can be read together or individually. You will get the most out of the content if you read it multiple times, highlight what stands out to you, and prayerfully reflect on the content of the Scripture being discussed.
In the coming pages, you will be encouraged to…
*Remember that God will uphold you
*Pray with thankfulness

*Be strong and courageous
*Seek the Lord
*Cast your anxiety on God
