10 Anxiety-Relieving Promises Worth Knowing {and Free Printables}

10 Promises Worth Knowing

Happy New Year! We’re 2 weeks into 2016 – a new chapter in each of our stories. So many exciting possibilities are on the horizon for us this year. Fresh faith. New hope. Ahh.

But sooner or later (or both), we’ll find ourselves needing one thing:

Encouragement.  

Isn’t there a strangely perpetual need of it? How quickly our courage, resolve and peace can melt away.

John Bunyan (author of The Pilgrim’s Progress; 1678) wrote:

 “If you want encouragement, entertain the promises.”

Thank God for the promises in the Bible! And there are many. Thousands even. And not one – single – word of them can fail. Never. Ever.

God’s timeless promises have carried the generations of faith through rough waves and billows. His good promises buoy our hope and calm our anxious hearts. They get us walking on troubled waters.

That’s proved true for me time and again. It was this time last year I was more than a little discouraged. So I stole a short prayer from a father Jesus encountered and cried out: “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”

…And God’s precious and very great promises hidden in my heart, came bobbing to the surface of my mind. One after the other. Line by line. Day after day.

I’d like to say I grabbed hold of those [Life]lines for dear life. But the truth is, they took hold of me.

So this year, I’m keeping my favorite Scripture promises at the ready with these 10 printables. They’ve already helped me. Perhaps they might help you too.

Scripture promises_ God causes all things to work together for good...Bible promise Lam 3_22Bible promise_ The Lord is near to the brokenhearted

Bible promise_ God is our refuge and strength,

Bible promise_ my God will supply every need

Scripture promise_ The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble

Bible promise printable 1 Cor 10_13-2Bible promise Fear not;Bible promise Romans 8_38Bible Promise Isaiah 40_31-2

Aren’t they great promises? And aren’t they just what we need to overrule the discouragement in our lives?

And here’s the thing:
I was taught ALL those verses as a CHILD from my mom and grandparents. What a gift! Ours was a humble home built on Rock. Solid. Truth. Eternal stuff.

{This is me: grateful, wanting those same [Life]lines hidden within you and your child’s heart.}

So this year, let’s tuck God’s promises in our hearts, set our faces to the sun {Son}, and…

“Let God’s promises shine on [our] problems.”
― Corrie ten Boom

  1. So very encouraging! I have memorized God’s Word for years but a few years ago (during an increasing long trial) I felt the need to set my mind on more of God’s Word. So, I began memorizing chapters of the bible. What a huge blessing it’s been to my life.

    I loved this post! Thank you!

    • Glad you were encouraged Georgene!! Love that you are memorizing chapters! I like what Ruth Bell Graham wrote after a long trial she experienced: “I decided to start studying the promises and not the problems.” Putting them to memory is even better. 🙂 Bless you! xox
