How can I overcome anxiety?

Knowing where our security comes from, and praising God for it, gives us peace.

I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

Philippians 4:12-13 NLT


Living free from anxiety is about knowing where our security is and where our supply comes from. Too easily we forget, and fail to praise the God who gives us everthing. When we think we’re on our own, He is looking out for us.


Thank You, Lord, that Your provision and protection is sure
in times of plenty and in times of lack.
We thank You for the many safeguards and protections we enjoy,
which previous generations never knew.
We regard every source of provision,
every comfort of life
as coming from You,
every ability we summon up as coming from Christ,
and we honour You as the Giver.
