Did Paul have an anxiety attack?

In Philipians 4:6-7, Paul said, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

I think only a person who have had an experience with a deep sense of anxiety could say such words. What do you think?



  1. I agree!!! We cannot speak of that which we have not experienced.

  2. I believe so. Paul is a passionate man and anxiety is a strong emotion. I suspect he is also a control freak so it has have been hard for him to depend on God - thus more anxiety!

  3. Susan, Alex,
    Hmmm ... yeah, I would think so too.
