Anxiety is something we all deal with to varying degrees. Whether it is from stressful situations, social pressure, family expectations, or an overall mental health struggle, anxiety is incredibly crippling to our ability to accomplish the things we want and need to do in life. Anxiety has many causes and many prescriptions, but one thing that always soothes anxiety is a sense of trust. There are good and trustworthy people in all our lives but despite their best efforts, no one is perfect and will never let us down. However, one of the greatest aspects of Jesus is that he is perfect, will always be there for us, and will never let us down. Paul wrote in Romans, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Though we cannot know the way in which God will bless us, when we trust that He is always working to bless us we will be naturally buoyed with joy, peace, and comfort. Today, if you are dealing with anxiety, fortify yourself by remembering that God is bringing good things to you and cares for you deeply.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” – Romans 15:13 NIV
