What is God's Heart on Anxiety?

What is  God's Heart  on Anxiety?  Everyone loves a good transformation story and we all love the idea of transformation. We believe the reason we all love these types of stories is that, deep down, there are things about us that we dream about being different some day. We want our own transformation story. God desires to give you hope as you face life challenges, problems, difficult trials and to transform you.

The good news for us is that God specializes in redemption and transformation. He takes that which was lost and restores it. He takes that which was dead and gives it life. He takes that which had no hope and rewrites its story. This is our God! As you pray today, ask God boldly to transform the thing inside you that you choose to see changed forever!   Our Women of Faith Keys for Living resources are designed to assist you in transforming and being the transformation story you know God has in strore for you. Wherever you are in your faith journey, you are welcome here.

Anxiety inaccurately judges reality. It forgets the past and fears the future. It fails to remember how you’ve made it through past difficulties and focuses instead on potential threats in the future. Anxiety leaves you with a fight or flight response in the present, vigilantly preparing for possible outcomes or avoiding fearful situations altogether.

The Lord, however, sees all things clearly. He says, “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please’” (Isaiah 46:10).

God has brought you through the past and holds your future in His hands. And in your present struggle with anxiety, He is with you. The Lord is at work in your life—your anxiety is not without purpose. God longs to be your refuge and help you walk through your fears and troubles.

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”

Psalm 46:1


  • God wants you to remember that He is good and gracious—and compassionately cares about you.

“The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.” 

Psalm 145:8–9

  • God wants you to remember He is with you when you’re fearful.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” 

Isaiah 41:10

  • God wants you to pray and experience His peace when you’re feeling anxious.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:6–7

  • God wants you to look to Him and His Word when you’re filled with anxiety.

“When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.”

Psalm 94:19

  • God wants you to align your thoughts with His truth when you feel anxious.

“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” 

Philippians 4:8

  • God wants you to trust Him when you’re anxious—to have faith and not fear.

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you”

“For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”

1 Timothy 4:8
