Article Notes: The Secret to Dealing with Fear and Anxiety, by Ed Welch

Over at CCEF.org, Ed Welch posted recently on handling fear and anxiety. The secret, he says, is humbling ourselves before we “cast all [our] anxiety on him” (1 Peter 5:7). In the verse before 1 Peter 5:7, Peter writes, “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he might lift you up in due time.” Welch says that we often simply come to God expecting him to take away our cares when we cast them on him–and certainly, we know he can change our circumstances and take away our suffering–but that this approach isn’t always one of humility. Essentially, we can often say in this approach, “Well God, here are my cares–now take care of them.”
