Anxiety is a joy killer.
It’s what the enemy uses to try to get
all of us off track and put our minds
on useless temporary things.
But Jesus told us not to worry:
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
God has a purpose and a plan for our lives. Our adversary is doing everything he can for us to put our eyes on the storm just as Peter looked at the storm and started to sink. If we take our eyes off of the Lord and start to focus on our circumstances, we will get distracted and waste the time that God has given us to accomplish His will through our lives. Scripture tells us:
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
If our days are spent worrying- we’re throwing away the time that the Lord has given us to fulfill His purpose through us. He has a purpose for us.
Do you believe that? Well you should- because He tells us that in Scripture!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
You weren’t created to live far from the Lord. You need Him to do everything in life. It is through the faith in Him that He will accomplish all of His goals through you.
He will use you as a parent, as a daughter or son, as a friend. He will use you! Focus on Him and His will.
As Charles Stanley always says:
Obey God and leave the consequences up to Him.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
This week I really felt the Holy Spirit talking to me about anxiety. So I started to search for sermons to listen to and found 2 excellent sermons. I really want to share them with you.
The first Bible study I listened to was from Foundations for Freedom. It’s a more in depth study about anxiety with lots of excellent biblical truths that will help you. To watch the video presentation about anxiety just click play on the video below or you can also view their anxiety study materials by clicking on this link.
The second one is right below here and you can just click the play button and listen to it. It’s only half an hour long and filled with truths that will set you free from anxiety. You won’t regret listening to this. I have listened to it many times.
If you ever feel anxious, just come back here and listen to it again and let God’s truth sink into your hearts until you are fully believing it all.
Please feel free to share your own thoughts on anxiety or ask for help if you need it in the comment section below.
Blessings to you,
