MFM MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL NOVEMBER 16, 2021 (OVERCOMING ANXIETY (II))
TOPIC: ”OVERCOMING ANXIETY (II)”
Phil. 4:4-9; Matt 6:25-34; Matt 11:28-30
Anxiety is satan’s weapon of unrest. Anxiety and worry are both rooted in unhealthy fear. Fear has torment! God foresees our response to issues of life; hence He gave us 365 divine caplets of “Fear Not.” He knows we are prone to fear. Anxiety will drain a person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy if it’s not checkmated.
It may end in bodily sickness, mental and emotional disorder, and it disconnects you from God spiritually. The apostle Paul, in 2 Tim.1:7, stated that God has not given us the spirit of fear, but that of love, power and sound mind. You cannot entertain fear and yet remain loving, bold and possess a sound mind. Anxiety weakens the hearts and minds of men.
Christians must be careful. Why should you allow the accuser of the brethren, the enemy of our soul, satan, to steal your peace and joy, and leave you to wallow in distress while there are lots of divine promises for you. Remember, Satan has come to steal, to kill and to destroy, but Jesus has come to give us abundant life (John 10:10b). When fear comes in, faith jumps out.
The Bible says without faith, no man can please God (Heb. 11:6.). Those who heard the word of God but were too fearful or doubtful to believe could not enter into the rest of God according to Heb. 4: 1-3. What a calamity! May God give you rest from every problem that puts you under pressure, in Jesus’ name.
You have no reason to remain under the yoke of anxiety, especially if you are a child of God. There are many promises laid out in the scriptures to attend to your worries and anxieties. All that is required of you is to get back to God’s word. Read and meditate upon those words, believe them and you are liberated.
However, if you are not born again, the enemy has a legal right to torment you with fear, worry and anxiety as well as their terrible consequences. You can stop the enemy’s activities in your life and overcome him by giving your life to Jesus Christ. Once you do that, the Holy Spirit will begin to indwell and help you.
By reading, meditating and obeying God’s word daily, your faith will grow and worry as well as anxiety will ﬁzzle out of your life.
1 Pet.5:7 – Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
When you are ignorant of who you are, you easily fall prey to beggarly powers. Arise and contend for your divine position!
Powers assigned to trouble you shall be arrested and destroyed today, in the name of Jesus.
1. Powers assigned to draw me away from the presence of God, release me and die, in the name of Jesus.
2. I shall not die with my problems; my problems shall die, in the name of Jesus.
3. I receive strength and hope to see me through, in the name of Jesus.
4. O God, arise and silence my silencers, in the name of Jesus.
5. Satanic agenda to weaken my faith, fail woefully, in the name of Jesus.
6. Lord Jesus, Prince of peace, take over my burden and be in charge of my life, in the name of Jesus.
7. Suffocating problems, I suffocate you before you suffocate me, in the name of Jesus.
