.: Anxiety :.

6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (NIV)

Philippians 4:6-7

4:6 Be anxious for nothing. Fret and worry indicate a lack of trust in God's wisdom, sovereignty, or power. Delighting in the Lord and meditating on His Word are a great antidote to anxiety. All difficulties are within God's purposes. Prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving .

4:7 Peace of God. Inner calm or tranquillity is promised to the believer who has a thankful attitude based on unwavering confidence that God is able and willing to do what is best for His children. Surpasses all understanding, refers to the divine origin of peace. It transcends human intellect, analysis, and insight.
