The Antidote For Anxiety
I am leaving you with a gift - peace of mind and heart. John 14:27
When we are in fellowship with God we receive the peace of God. Peace is a total well-being and an inner rest of our spirit. Jesus' peace is real and present during our times of trouble. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV) We can be thankful at all times because, God always hears us and meets all of our needs.
The antidote for anxiety is prayer. Being honest with God and letting our requests be made known. Anxiety is something we need to lay down at the feet of Jesus. Furthermore, we need to ask God to help us find the root of the problem, because anxiety is a result from tragedy, trauma, departure, fear, abandonment, and loneliness.
Through prayer we receive the peace of God which is an inner tranquility. All we need to do is ask and we will receive. I suggested to a friend don't wait until you are overcome with anxiety. Instead, pray about it daily. The peace of God works in and through us protecting our hearts and minds. We should give all our cares to God and lean not on our own understanding. The way God loves and cares for us is beyond our comprehension.
