Anxiety impacts approximately 40 million Americans over the age of 18 and over 18 million American children each year (according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America). Why does anxiety have such an impact on so many of us?
It is because we are not made for Anxiety. God has created human beings in His image. And in His image He has made us for certain experiences, and not for others. We are made for Hope; and it is Hope that Evil seeks to destroy. Our adversary uses anxiety to isolate, insulate, and intimidate in its effort to break the hearts of God’s beloved by stealing their hope. The Good News is that it is the passion of our King to weave glory out of brokenness. We will be looking at how 1 Peter 5:6-11 applies to our anxiety.
