For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. Psalm 36:9
Anxious? Feeling a bit frenzied? Feeling uneasy due to constraints of health or personal matters? Feeling upset thinking,
“I’m filled with faith and follow the LORD, so how could I be feeling this way?”
Relax! We’re only human, we’re flesh, and therefore, at times our flesh, as opposed to our spiritual selves, reacts accordingly.
All of us will experience one time or another “anxiety, nerves, and worry.” We might start beating up on ourselves, considering the scripture that states emphatically…
“There is no fear in perfect love” — for fear causes torment. (1 John 4:18)
But how blessed to have a “gracious, loving, and understanding God” who realizes that we’re far from perfect. The question then becomes, “How do we handle it? And, what methods, if any do we apply toward the handling of such stressful and hard tribulations?”
Being armed with the Word is half the battle.
The other is the LORD’s for He is the One that will go before us, and do battle for us, and bring us through. He encourages us with His word,
“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” (Joshua 1:9)
Turn to the LORD with all your heart and trust Him. Place your full acknowledgment of self to Him unconditionally, and know that HE WILL help us through it. So during trying times, adversities, trials, and temptations…remember—don’t get discouraged if you fall short, remember there’s only ONE who is perfect!
“All praise and thanks to You Father for loving us, no matter our imperfections, in Jesus’ name, Amen.”
