How To Overcome Worry: Experiencing The Peace Of God In Every Situation
Although we have always lived in a anxiety-driven world, have you noticed that the threats we face in the 21st century seen to be larger and more menacing than ever before?
In his new book, How To Overcome Worry: Experiencing The Peace Of God In Every Situation, Dr. Winfred Neely of Moody Bible Institute says:
Anxiety can reside in virtually every nook and cranny of human experience. Its causes are myriad and it is no respecter of persons or circumstances.
In the face of anxiety, each of us – Christians and non-Christians alike – find ourselves asking challenging theological, existential and practical questions as we grapple with worry and anxiety in our daily lives:
- How do we overcome anxiety in a worry-filled world?
- How do we obtain victory over situations that are charged with anxiety?
- When a raging sea of anxiety rises up within our souls, how do we keep ourselves from drowning?
Dr. Neely provides us with biblical answers to these questions in How To Overcome Worry as He walks us through God’s scriptural anecdote to worry, Philippians 4:6-7:
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
What I like about How To Overcome Worry is that Dr. Neely truly brings this much beloved inspirational passage of Scripture to life with his exegesis and insights into this passage. For instance, the author examines the context in which the apostle Paul penned these words and the meaning of key Greek words in the original text. He also provides practical suggestions for how we can experience freedom from anxiety and worry by applying the text to our own circumstances.
The author also provides three extremely helpful appendices at the end of the book that provide readers with a pattern for prayer, additional scriptures to aid in your battle against worry, and questions for individual reflection or group discussion.
How To Overcome Worry is an easy-to-read book filled with practical biblical advice that is essential to our emotional and spiritual well-being.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
