Life Alert! We often try to control our lives without consulting with God, our counselor, first. Our fears create anxiety. Anxiety is defined as a feeling or worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. (SIRI, Dictionary)
We can remedy the causes of the deception of anxiety. Satan would have us feel defeated, overwhelmed, uncertain, fearful, timid, and depressed. We can overcome the weight of anxiety. God gave us the authority to do so.
Today, tell yourself,
‘I will not stress over the things I cannot control. I will turn the things I am stressing about over to God, Thank you Lord for relieving my anxiety. You said do not worry, do not fear. I am entering this day in spiritual joy. I will not allow anxiety to wear down my heart.’ (LAB)
Claiming My Calm Today:
- Enter into prayer and meditation, find your calm space in the Lord’s presence.
- Close all noise out and allow the Holy Spirit to comfort you.
- Ask Him to remove all of your anxiety and fear.
- When you finish praying, take a deep slow breath and open your eyes. You are entering a new calm space.
- Greet those around you with a smile and a kind word.
This routine may take practice because it may not be your normal demeanor, but over time, the new you will wonder how you let anxiety and fear overwhelm you.
The last step is speaking kind words to others. Why a kind word? A kind word serves three purposes, 1 – Jesus instructed us to be kind to one another, 2 – it will cheer you up, and 3 – it will cheer up the person, or people you are greeting.
SCRIPTURES to Help CALM Anxiety and Fear
Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.
2 Thessalonians 3:16
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
Cast your cares on the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
God gave us the authority to defeat Satan’s attacks. Do not allow him to define your attitude about life with doubt, fear, and anxiety. Put on the Armor of God and go forward in peace and good cheer.
