Anxious for Nothing Study Guide: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World

Anxious for Nothing Study Guide: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World

by Max Lucado

$5.99

Overview

According the National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety disorders are reaching epidemic proportions. In a given year, 17% of Americans will feel the effects of a panic attack. Anxiety-related issues are the number one mental health problem among women and are second only to alcohol and drug abuse among men. Between 1997 and 2004, Americans more than doubled their spending on anti-anxiety medications from $900 million to $2.1 billion.

We are tense. Why? Change is one reason. Sociologists speculate the world has changed more in the last thirty years than it has in the last three hundred! Every day seems to bring new change and threats. We also face personal challenges—job loss, cancer, divorce, addiction, bankruptcy. Add to personal challenges those of a global nature imported into our lives every few seconds thanks to smart phones, TVs, and computer screens. In our parents' day, the nightly news caught them up on world events. Now it is a matter of minutes.

Anxiety just comes with life. However, as God's Word reveals, it doesn’t have to dominate life. In this five-session video-based Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), bestselling author Max Lucado looks at seven admonitions from the apostle Paul in Philippians 4:4–8 that lead to one wonderful promise: "The peace of God which surpasses all understanding." As he unpacks each verse, he shows how God is ready to give comfort to help us face the calamities in life, view bad news through the lens of sovereignty, discern the lies of Satan, and tell ourselves the truth. We can be anxious for nothing, and discover true peace from God that surpasses all human understanding.

Sessions include:

• Rejoice in the Lord Always

• Let Your Gentleness Be Known to All

• In Everything by Prayer… with Thanksgiving

• The Peace of God… Will Guard Your Hearts

• Meditate on These Things

Designed for use with the Anxious for Nothing Video Study (sold separately).
