God can be a refuge
If you seek Him
A light that will accompany you for life
If you ask Him
He will never turn you away
If you knock at His door
God never changes
Regardless of our changing perspective
Through it all
He is still God
Traces of the divine
Are dormant inside
Awaiting to be awaken
When you take hold of God’s hand
The abundance is overwhelming
The heart of God
Is a generous one
Allow the spirit of God
To fall fresh on you
And be a transmitter of His unconditional love
Into the world
Completely lifting the darkness
Whatever soothes the heart
Will soothe the mind
As long as you are looking upwards
You will not decline
Reframe your frame of mind
And decorate the walls of your heart beautifully
Sometimes there is strain and stress but don’t fall into the trap believing that you will never be blessed.
Anxiety feels not only like sweat, but also like a heart that beats out loud. It pounds and pounds until you’re certain your biggest fears, strongest worries and largest inadequacies will sound in unison and come crashing down.
What makes your anxiety come alive? Social situations? Dwindling finances? Health concerns? Relational issues? Your weight? Your future? Your past?
Anxiety speaks like a dictator and lives like bondage. Jesus speaks like peace and brings deliverance to life.
3 Ways to Wreck Anxiety and Fear
1. Acknowledge: God chose you. This means, out of all the millions of people He could have created, could have desired and could have accepted – by grace, He set His affections on you.
2. Accept: You are holy. By the sacrifice of Jesus, even in your worry, wrestling and hand writhing, God sees you as radiant and resplendent. You are his walking glory!
3. Affirm: You are blameless in His sight. Because Jesus was the perfect sacrifice, you can walk as an imperfect woman, covered by His heart-aching death on the cross.
Anxiety is an invasive bully. It gets in your face and then under your skin, telling you you’re about to face ruin.
The best way to beat fear is to not fear it. The best way to beat fear is to acknowledge it, repent of it and then douse it with love. It can’t rage under the power of the Living Water (Jo. 4:14). It can’t thrive under the light of truth. It can’t strengthen when submitted to the God of all strength.
Dear Lord, thank You. Thank You that You see us as holy and blameless. Thank You that You want us. Thank You that, because of your sacrifice, You see us as radiant. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. We accept this as truth and we will walk by this truth today. We love You.
In Jesus’ Name,
God’s love never changes
However the world might perceive
His light is hope
His light is redemption
His light is love
