Surrender your anxiety!
“Surrender your anxiety! Be silent and stop your striving, and you will see that I am God. I am the God above all the nations, and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth. Here he stands! The Commander! The mighty Lord of Angel Armies is on our side! The God of Jacob fights for us!” Psalm46:10-11(TPT)
Our God says, “Calm down, and learn that I am God!
“Stand silent! Know that I am God”
“Be still, and know that I am God!
Whatever is going on around you.
God is in control.
The strategy of the enemy is to make you panic and lose control.
“Peter, my dear friend, listen to what I’m about to tell you. Satan has demanded to come and sift you like wheat and test your faith.”Luke 22:31 (TPT)
Peter’s focus shifted:
He started walking on water but looked at the storms and started sinking.
He cut off someone’s ear.
He denied the Savior thrice.
However, God still reached out to him and restored him.
When you fret and you are anxious, your focus shifts from the Almighty God.
Don’t allow fear to determine your actions.
Rather be at peace with God and in yourself.
The media knowingly and unknowing drum up fear.
Again fear is a tool that satan uses to gain access to you and take control.
God is assuring you again and again:
“And Moses said to the people, Fear not: stand still, and see the salvation of Jehovah, which he will work for you to-day; for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to-day, ye shall see them again no more forever.”
Remind yourself again what is God’s word concerning the situation.
Hold steadfastly to God’s Word.
Make no room for anxiety in your purposeful life.
