How I Used God To Manage My Fears

Here are some suggestions I found useful on using the help of God to help manage my own fears and anxieties...........

1.Talk To God: The first step a person should do is to start talking and praying to God. A person can go to church or to a quiet place during the day to tell God that they are having a problem. They should tell God how they feel and ask God for some of his help. A person could also review the Bible and read some articles on trusting in God and then apply these concepts in their life. Each and every day, a person should make it up a habit to talk to God and ask for His help.

2. God Is Stronger Than Your Fears: Remember that the one source that a person should use as a basis in managing their fears and anxieties is using God as a basis in dealing with their fears. Why? The power of God is the one power that is stronger than your fears and anxieties. Also, God loves each one of us and he is the one person who has the power to solve all of our problems. He will help you if you ask him to.

3. Be Aware: When using the help of God to manage your fears, a person needs to be aware of how God is working in their life. Most of the time God works in mysterious ways and the answers he provides might not be that obvious. A person must be aware of God being in their life even when they are dealing with their fears and anxieties.

4. Don't Be Picky: A person must also be sensitive to the answers God gives them. Some people think that the answers that God provides must be religious in nature. That is not always the case. God may provide the answers in a way that might not be religious in nature. These answers could involve basic psychology and cognitive techniques that deals with how to manage fear and anxiety.

5. Get Help: If you have trouble, talk to a member of the clergy or a professional counselor to help deal with your fears and anxieties. They will be able to provide you with additional advice and insights on how to deal with your current problem. By talking to a professional a person will be helping themselves in the long run because they will become better able to deal with their problems in the future. Remember that it never hurts to ask for help.

6. Don't Stop Praying: Finally, the most important thing is to continue praying and talking to God. Talk to God as if you were talking to a friend. Read the Bible and pray hard. Be persistent and be open in the avenues that God may provide to you in solving your problem. It is not always easy, however God is in control and he will help you if you ask Him.

  • This is wonderful advice for those who follow the Christian path... Thanks!
  • Thank you for sharing, that's quite a detailed post for those wishing to take a more Christian-orientated approach towards recovery. I've always felt that those who believe in a higher power, or are spiritually-orientated will be aided to overcome their addictions through prayer and faith. 
  • Thank you so much for making the effort to share your experience and realizations with us. I am a Christian but I am more structureless compared to other denominations. I do talk to Him every now and then. It helps a lot. You become more understanding and forgiving and less condemning. Unfortunately, not everyone follows this path so to each their own as long as you still believe in goodness and in doing good. Best regards!
