Trust Building Verses:
Overcome Anxiety by Hearing the Word of God
When I hear the news, I’ve noticed my mind runs in anxious circles over what’s happening in our world. But God pulls me into a hard stop and says, “Listen.” So, I have been and this what I’ve learned:
- Worry and fretting don’t bring peace, but standing in wonder of God does.
- Letting my thoughts run wild creates an avalanche of anxiety, but capturing my thoughts brings assurance that God is in control.
- Allowing my faith to grow by hearing God’s word brings strength for the day to day.
Romans 10:17 states: “So faith comes from hearing and hearing through the word of God.”
I’ve begun the practice of reading the Bible out loud to myself during devotions. It might be a verse or two or a whole chapter or even half a chapter. But what I’ve discovered is how much it helps me pay attention to what I’m reading and how it’s building my faith.
I wanted to take it a step further and focus on trust building verses, so, I made a short six minute recording of some passages. The power of listening is amazing and has the power to change our thoughts, which changes our lives.
It’s my prayer that as you let God’s word soak into your heart that your faith grows so that you can face your personal struggles with the power of God.
He loves you with an everlasting love and enables you to stand firm on him, the Everlasting Rock and sure foundation for your feet.
We need you more than ever. Thank you for giving us your Word as a guide and comfort. May it pierce our hearts and may we draw ever closer to you. We ask that you do a mighty work in our lives and in our world. You are worthy of all praise and honor and glory.
In Jesus’s name,
