10 Scriptures to Calm your stress and Anxiety.

by Yvette van Niekerk

My husband said that the Coronavirus and social distancing is the leading cause of peoples suffering from depression and are stressed out, and very anxious. Scripture is the best way to renew our minds and change our mind-set. Helping us focus and meditate on the Lord.

Deuteronomy 31: 6 “I am strong, courageous, and firm; I fear not and am not in terror, for it is the Lord my God Who goes with me; He will not fail me or forsake me.”

Psalm 86: 7 “In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.”

Psalm 139: 23 – 24 “Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

Proverbs 15: 15 “All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil [by anxious thoughts and forebodings], but I have a glad heart and a continual feast [regardless of circumstances].”

Matthew 6: 27 “My worrying and being anxious will not add one unit of measure (cubit) to my stature or the span of my life.”

Matthew 6: 31, 33 “I will not worry and be anxious, saying, What am I going to eat? Or what am I going to drink? or What am I going to wear? … But I will seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given me besides.”

Matthew 6: 34 “I will not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its trouble.”

Mark 4: 19 “I will not let the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.”

Philippians 4: 6 – 7 “I am not anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petitions, with thanksgiving, I present my requests to God, which transcends all understanding, guards my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus.”

1 Peter 5: 7 “I cast the whole of my care [all my anxieties, all my worries, all my concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for me affectionately and cares about me watchfully.”


Heavenly Father, Lord, please help us face today, using Your Word to renew our minds and helping us draw near to You. Forgive us our sins, in Jesus Name. Amen
