What is going on everyone!! As I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to write about, I could not think of anything. I hit a wall. So, I asked God what He wanted me to say on here. I hope this helps you all like it is helping me as I write this.
To someone who feels like a failure: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” (1 Peter 2:9). You are not a failure. Just because things are going wrong or not as you expect, DOES NOT mean you are the cause of those negative circumstances. You are more than enough, and you are loved by your Amazing Creator, who destined for you to triumph over any negative thing that the enemy is trying to put into your mind. I speak peace over your heart, and strength for your mind, that you may see how great God is showing Himself through you. Dig into what God says about you, so that your perspective may switch and align to your true identity as a child of Almighty God.
To someone who feels like God doesn’t hear you: “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). “Cast all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). God is a Heavenly Father. He listens to us and He understands all that we go through in life. It’s not abnormal to feel like God isn’t listening, but do not mistake God’s silence for absence. Sometimes, we need to draw closer to God for our hearts to receive what He is saying. We also need to realize that we need to quiet ourselves to listen. You can’t listen to someone when you’re talking. God is working everything out for our good, because He created the world, and He hold us in His hands.
To someone who is experiencing fear and anxiety: “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). You can let go of everything that is causing fear. Our Heavenly Father knows exactly where you are, and He is working everything out. Pray peace over your mind and heart. “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10). You can be rest assured that God will strengthen you in times of pressure and anxiety. Yes, anxiety and fear is very very real, but that is not the end of your story. The story goes on in that Jesus has those issues nailed to the cross. Fear and anxiety bows to the name of Jesus. Nothing can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:31-39).
I don’t know who this is for, but I know I need it myself. I really believe God is saying that He is greater than anything that the enemy is trying to plague our minds and hearts with. Demons tremble at the name of Jesus. Fear, anxiety, depression, anything that is trying to keep us down HAS to bow to the powerful name of Jesus. I just pray that we all find rest in Jesus, and that we can be at peace, knowing where our help comes from. We are strengthened because God is our Father. We are redeemed, and nothing can keep us down. Let that stick with you all this week. If anyone needs prayer, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE comment on here, or message me or Trackstarz on social media. We would love to pray for you.
