Causes of Anxiety in the Bible
There are many reasons why women fear but if we did deep into the main cause, it’s lack of belief. We don’t have faith in God’s Word, we don’t trust in God’s promises that he will never leave us. He is right here with us 24/7, yet, we don’t call upon him to help us.
Instead, we fester in our worries, fears, and anxieties. We dwell on negative thinking such as questioning our stressful situations, being discontent with our lives, and holding on to bitterness and anger. These real feelings and emotions get us in trouble and affect us mentally, physically, and spiritually. And, it also impacts others as we become bad examples as Christians and we lack leaning on the Lord for our strength and courage.
Here are some examples of negative, unbiblical thoughts to avoid that you may experience when lacking faith or doubting the Lord:
- What if this happens…
- If only I had this then I’d be happy….
- This happened before…what if it happens again?
- Why is this happening to me?
- If only he/she would do this…
- Why do I have to do this?
- I can’t handle this situation anymore!
- I don’t want to live anymore.
- I’m better off not existing.
