Stress Bible Verses
Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Trust him, and he will help you.
We are merely moving shadows,
and all our busy rushing ends in nothing.
We heap up wealth,
not knowing who will spend it.
It is useless for you to work so hard
from early morning until late at night,
anxiously working for food to eat;
for God gives rest to his loved ones.
He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life
—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough
clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body
more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or
harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father
feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than
they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
“And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the
field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their
clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as
beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for
wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire
tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you
have so little faith?
“So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will
we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These
things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your
heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the
Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and
he will give you everything you need.
but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the
worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire
for other things, so no fruit is produced.
“Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don’t work or
make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory
was not dressed as beautifully as they are.
“Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing
and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life.
Don’t let that day catch you unaware,
1 Corinthians 7:32
I want you to be free from the concerns of this life. An
unmarried man can spend his time doing the
Lord’s work and thinking how to please him.
For I want you to understand what really matters, so that
you may live pure and blameless lives
until the day of Christ’s return
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.
Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing.
Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and
right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about
things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting
into practice all you learned and received from me—everything
you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God
of peace will be with you.
1 Peter 5:7
Give all your worries and cares to
God, for he cares about you.
