Help in Times of Anxiety

A while back I checked on a friend of mine who was going through a difficult time and had been dealing with some anxiety.  I wanted to check in and see how they were doing.   They said they were feeling better, they said they had visited with their doctor about what they were going through and they said they found a Bible verse that ministered to them, Psalm 94:17 – 18.

Psalm 94:17   Unless the LORD had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. 18 When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, LORD, supported me. 19 When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.

We talked about the ways the verse had ministered to them and how they embraced the promise of the Lord’s help for those who trust in Him.  My friend came to the same conclusion as the psalmist in verse 22 “the LORD is my fortress; my God is the mighty rock where I hide.”  I pray that you know that you can also turn to the Lord Jesus Christ in times of stress and anxiety.  I pray that you also know that He will be your fortress, He will support you when you feel like you are slipping.  He will give you help in your time of need.
