10 Quotes from Billy Graham on Worry and Anxiety

Over the years, Billy Graham spoke many times about what the Bible has to say about worry and anxiety. See below 10 quotes from Mr. Graham on that very topic.

“Only the Holy Spirit can give us peace in the midst of the storms of restlessness and despair. We should not grieve our Guide by indulging in worry or paying undue attention to self.”

“Worries flee before a spirit of gratitude.”

“Pray for wisdom to deal with whatever is worrying you. Pray that God will act to change the circumstances according to His will. He doesn’t always do what we want Him to – but He knows what’s best for us, and He can be trusted.”

“When worry is present, trust cannot crowd its way in.”

“Some people spend so much time worrying about what might happen that they never enjoy what is happening [now] . . . Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.”

“Memorizing the Bible is most important. “Thinking God’s thoughts” will take the place of worried, anxious concerns.”

“God doesn’t want us to be consumed with worry and anxiety . . . Instead, He wants us to turn our worries over to Him, and to trust Him for the future.”

“Jesus used the carefree attitude of the birds to underscore the fact that worrying is unnatural. I am learning in my own life, day by day, to keep my mind centered on Christ.”

“. . . don’t be burdened by worry and anxiety about your future. Instead, ask Jesus Christ to come into your life and commit your future into His hands. Then ask Him to help you trust Him every day, and to live the way He wants you to live.”

“When we allow worries to dominate us, we’re actually saying that God can’t be trusted to take care of us. But He can be trusted!”
