What does the Bible say about stress ...

Pushing cart

Surely a man goes about as a shadow!
Surely for nothing they are in turmoil;
   man heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather!

Psalm 39:6

Eagle souring

Have you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.

He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.

Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted;

but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;

They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:28-31

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

John 14:27

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:11-13

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Matthew 11:28-29

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life....God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

John 3:16; Romans 5:8

God is gentle and compassionate. God knows your situation and will be compassionate to you if you reach out to Him. God sent His Son Jesus to be crucified, as the ultimate sign of His love for you.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God..... As it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one."

Romans 3:23,10

We are all broken. The Bible calls your brokenness sin. Sin is your state of being separated from God and results in all kinds of evil actions. It also causes you to be unnecessarily anxious, and so selfish that others are hurt by your anxiety.

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord..... But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God..... For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.

Romans 6:23; John 1:12; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

God can make you right. Salvation is a free gift, obtained only through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. No matter how hard you try, your life will never be good enough to earn eternal life. Neither will you ever be too bad to be able to believe in the Name of Jesus.
