An Answer for Anxiety
May 29, 2022 • Dr. Delman Coates
We live in a world filled with people who feel they are constantly under pressure. Pressure to succeed, pressure to perform, pressure to keep winning, pressure to keep going, pressure at work, pressure at home, pressure in relationships, pressure with finances, and the list keeps going. It doesn’t matter what your bank account says, where you went to college, what zip code you live in, or how many followers you have on social media; none of us is exempt from the pressures that come in life. The symptoms range from impaired judgment, irritability, restlessness, sleeplessness, fatigue, increase muscle aches, soreness, and the inability to concentrate. If you’re dealing with anxiety, recognize the symptoms and talk to someone – a professional, a counselor – and get help. In our text today we discover that God has something to say about how to handle anxiety, not if it happens, but when. And in these short yet salient verses in 1 Peter chapter 5, I believe we are given some answers on how to deal with anxiety.
