Today’s Worries? Vanished!
“Trust in the Lord with all thy heart, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:6 KJV)
Have you ever woke up from a good night’s sleep to your brain or mind racing a mile-a-minute making a mental list of “all” the things you are concerned or worried about? I suppose we all have. And, you have to agree…”Not a great way to start the day…”
To combat the morning’s negativity, we, as believers, often start quoting Scripture that will help to put our nagging thoughts into their proper perspective and into the Hands of God. In other words, we grab a good morning dose of much-needed “FAITH” to help us get up and get out of the bed! (Christian Beware: Satan never gives up on trying to discourage a Christian…Spiritual warfare comes early in the mornings and late in the evenings! We are always in Satan’s scope, but we have ALL the garments of warfare we need to face the battle as explained in Ephesians 6).
Over 365 times in the Bible, one for each day of the year, GOD tells us NOT to fret, worry, or be filled with anxiety; HE is in control…However, if you are like me, fears and worries seem to find their way on the inside from all that is happening around me on the outside! Oh, how we must ever “keep” our eyes fixed on Jesus Christ!
I wish that I could tell you that I was some sort of “super” Christian believer who defeats fears, worries, concerns, and anxieties at the sightless onset…But, I would be telling a lie…I am weak; but He (GOD!) is strong…I must take my concerning thoughts to God every day; sometimes several times in a day and again at night. I leave them each time at His feet, but they seem to have feet of their own to walk right back into my thoughts!….”Fiery darts of Satan.” YET!!! GOOD NEWS!! With each worrisome “dart” from Satan, I am provided with the opportunity and CHOICE to seek God in Scripture…Again, Again, and Again…And, there is nothing wrong with seeking God in Scripture!!! Early in the morning; late in the evening; all through the day!
Let’s read some Scripture together right now:
“Casting ALL your care upon HIM; for HE (GOD) careth for you! (Amen!) I Peter 5:7
