MFM MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL NOVEMBER 15, 2021 – OVERCOMING ANXIETY (I)
TOPIC: OVERCOMING ANXIETY (I)
Matt 6: 25-30
Anxiety is common to man. Every human being gets anxious at one time or the other. It becomes a concern when a person is no longer in control of himself or herself. When anxiety takes over a person’s life, it becomes a disorder, mentally or emotionally, making the victim to think and behave irrationally. Anxiety is generated from excessive worry which is an unproﬁtable venture that doesn’t proffer any solution.
Rather, it compounds the situation. God warns us to desist from worry. Worry, a close ally of anxiety, operates subtly from the inside, killing it’s victim slowly. When you are anxious, you are already working against divine counsel. And why should you, when you can take your matter to God in prayer.
Anxiety will surely occur when you take the control of your life away from God. Stop and think deeply. How many problems have you solved under your state of worry and anxiety? Worry and anxiety only make the burden heavier! What an unproﬁtable venture and time wastage. Worry and anxiety are always counter-productive.
They feed your doubt and starve or kill your faith. They birth discouragement, pessimism, despondency and failure. They are negative emotions that champions do not give room to thrive in their lives. Beloved, it is your responsibility to guard your heart and life from all these negative emotions. Keep them out and if they creep in, prayerfully bind the spirits behind them and cast them out of your life.
When we exhibit worry and anxiety, we only show that our faith or trust in God is not intact. Don’t ever allow your faith in God to falter or wane. The Psalmist said, ’Anytime I am afraid, I will trust in God.” Let that be your guiding principle also. Amazingly, the Master Burden Bearer, Jesus, calls on you to come to Him. He will lighten your burden and ease your yokes (Matt. 11:28-30).
Give God a chance in your struggles. Surrender to Jesus and He will give you peace over your worries and anxieties.
Isa. 26:3- Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
The only way you can experience internal peace is to disallow any situation from controlling you, and hand your concerns over to God.
I decree that every problem assigned to weary your existence shall expire today, in the name of Jesus.
1. I uproot and cast out every spirit of worry and anxiety, in the name of Jesus.
2. Agenda of mind-destroying demons, I am not your candidate, fail woefully, in the name of Jesus.
3. I receive the peace of God in my life, in the name of Jesus.
4. Powers assigned against my full scale joy, die, in the name of Jesus.
5. O God, arise and arrest every arrester of my peace, in the name of Jesus.
6. I receive divine solution to my stubborn problems, in the name of Jesus.
7. Holy Spirit, help me to overcome obstacles on my way of progress, in the name of Jesus.
