Anxious for Nothing
by Max Lucado
Anxiety is a something that we all struggle with, and Christians are not exempt. We are anxious about upcoming plans, the weather forecast, starting a new chapter in life, closing the door on a current situation, relationships, money, and so on and so on.
But, as Christians, we are command to be “anxious for nothing” in Philippians 4:6-7. Did you know that this verse is the most underlined passage in this Bible, yet probably the most difficult to live out?
In his book Anxious for Nothing, Max Lucado dissects these two verses from Philippians 4:6-7 and relates how they can be applied to our everyday life. The eleven chapters of this book are divided into four sections that make comprehension and application of the concepts realistic. I thoroughly enjoyed how Lucado took each phrase from this passage apart and cross referenced Scriptures while integrating personal stories to illustrate his various points.
Anxious for Nothing by Max Lucado has given me tools and confidence to live out Philippians 4:6-7 in my daily life by challenging how I study and apply Scripture, as well as how I pray. Lucado demonstrates how is it possible, with God’s help, to live a life in which you are anxious for nothing.
If you struggle with being overcome by the worries of this world (and let’s be honest…who doesn’t, right?), then I highly recommend you read this book. It is easy to read, simple to comprehend, and will have a profound impact on your life.
