You may not see it, but there is a battle going on. A war of two worlds, fighting for your heart.
On one side, there’s Satan and his army, working tirelessly to fill your heart with fear and anxiety. Draining you of your hope and faith in the promises of God, and fueling fear with lies and worries.
But as children of the Most High, we have no reason to fear. We can’t allow the anxiety that fills our hearts to rob us of a full and happy existence. Jesus came so we would have life, and have it abundantly.
He is fighting for you, you need only to be still. (Exodus 14:14)
Anxiety has no bearing in a place where the Lord dwells. Satan has no hold on you, and his schemes are no match for the Lord your God who loves you and fights for you daily.
Still, sometimes it’s hard to believe that God can overcome our anxiety when every minute of every day is full of games that your mind has chosen to play. Filled with worry and inexplicable fear, anxiety is not choosey in who it attacks. Just like its master, it merely comes to kill your spirit, steal your joy, and destroy any hope for a life without its crippling effects.
I know what you’re thinking: “You don’t understand, I HAVE prayed, and God has not taken away my anxiety.” And that may be true. But our God is sovereign, and His timing is perfect. Maybe you’ve struggled with anxiety for months, or maybe you’ve been carrying its weight for YEARS. Whatever the case may be, God is still good, He is faithful, and He will not let you suffer for no reason—especially at the hands of Satan.
Without God at our right hand, we can never overcome the evils of this world. It may be more than WE can handle, but our suffering is never more than GOD can handle. And while you may be stuck in this battle, feeling like the Lord has gone silent in your struggle, He has already gone before you and provided tools for overcoming even the smallest anxieties you may face.
The Bible is Truth. Truth spoken straight from God’s mouth. And in His Truths, we find peace and comfort that surpasses ALL understanding.
