Bible Verses Reminding Us That God is in Control

Fear and anxiety are two of the most popular weapons of our enemies. The more we experience fear and anxiety, the more it controls us and affects our decisions in life. Even still, we have God's promise of not leaving us behind. One of the ways to conquer fears is to turn to the bible.
Here are Bible verses reminding us that God is in control:
Isaiah 41:10 "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
Sometimes, reading the Bible is just a task for us that we usually forget to take it by heart and soul. This verse simply says fear is simply nothing to fear when He is with us. God is much more powerful than all the fears and anxieties you are experiencing.
Psalm 46:1 "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble."
God is our strength when we are weak. He is our refuge when we are helpless. Why are we turning to things that won't provide safety and shelter when we have God who is ready to accept us and God who is in control.
Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
God is powerful and when we ask him in prayer or petition, He will give it to us in His right time. Do not keep on worrying, instead put your trust in Him as He knows what is better for us.
