The lie says that if you trust what it says, then your worries are over. Wrong! These are false promises. Once the temporary false hope passes, a stronger anxiety will come.
The lie says that by being stressed out, you can't do anything about the situation. Wrong. You do not need to resign to the pressure. The Truth can set you free. God has a proper way for His children to handle every situation.
By submitting to fear, you agree with fear's lie which says that you are taking better preventative measures than God has provided.
Temptation is like bait. There is always a secret hook underneath.
We get anxious when we listen to these lies not only because the false promises do not work out as planned and we end up in a worse condition, but also because of additional guilt from not believing in God. We were designed only to be made secure and protected by God Himself. The further from God, the less peace we have.
