Anxiety attacks your body’s health in weakening your immune system, being susceptible to viral infections. In the spiritual world it attacks your faith in Jesus by redirecting your focus away from the promises found in scripture of deliverance to your situation at hand. Satan’s dart of anxiety will poison your faith little by little which will start to die. Anxiety takes away from you any desire to do God’s will and eventually abandonment of the faith in the Lord will take place. Anxiety starves your faith from being put into practice, it starts to weaken and gets very fragile, in doing so any small or big attacks from the enemy will break you to pieces.
God will not use you if you are consistently worrying, for it shows a lack of faith and trust in your part. Without faith no one can please God and anxiety is one of the strongest dart that the devil has to put you in a state of uselessness so that you cannot please God. To combat anxiety as Christians it is done by prayer, petitions and thanksgiving letting God know your situation that He may help you out of it.
6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
“This is why I tell you: Don’t worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing?
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.
1 Peter 5:7
7 The man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence indeed is the Lord, is blessed. 8 He will be like a tree planted by water: it sends its roots out toward a stream, it doesn’t fear when heat comes, and its foliage remains green. It will not worry in a year of drought or cease producing fruit.
