What do anxiety and fear have in common?

People use anxiety and fear interchangeably in some instances, but they are very distinct from one another. In general, fear is a response to an imminent threat, which may cause a person to feel alert and on edge in anticipation of the dangerous situation. Fear often leads people to take action in order to protect themselves or escape a harmful scenario.

Anxiety can be described as feelings of worry, nervousness, or unease that are caused by anticipated future events. Many people begin to feel anxious about topics without knowing why. When they do not know the source of their discomfort, people often mistake it for fear; however, anxiety is a response to imaginary circumstances. Fear often arises when there is an actual threat whereas anxiety typically manifests when there is no reason for concern.

Faith is believing in something without seeing evidence for it. Fear is the opposite of faith. Faith allows you to have hope in the Lord, which helps people get through tough times without being overcome by anxiety.

Knowing that someone else has control of the situation can help people relax and deal with their fears.

Jesus Christ is a source of comfort in times of anxiety. Humans have a constant desire to know what the future holds, but Jesus reminds us that only God knows when it’s our time to die (Matthew 24:36). By trusting in God and following His will for our life, people can find the security they need to make it through times of anxiety.
