Fear and stress surround us on a daily basis, from fearing for a children to doubting if we are gonna make it.
We put our trust in many things people, places and things. Sometimes our fears and doubts can consume us and the thing we fear the most is the result we end up with.
Programing your mind not to worry is something that can take some practice, but it is possible. I find comfort in knowing that God has everything under control and all I have to do it trust in him and know he's got everything under control.
God doesn't want us to live in fear, doubt, trouble, worry or stress, by doing these things we are making the life of Christ of no effect.
The same way we know the sun will rise tomorrow is the same trust he wants us to have in him, knowing that he loves us and wants nothing but the best for us in all things, even if we don't see it, feel it or touch it.
Overcome your fears
But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
And the Lord shall help them and deliver them;
He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them,
Because they trust in Him.
Psalm 37:39-40 (NKJV)
God helps is times of trouble when we trust him.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
Proverbs 3:5 (NKJV)
God sees what we cannot and knows what we don't, walk by faith not by sight.
The Lord is good,
A stronghold in the day of trouble;
And He knows those who trust in Him.
Nahum 1:7 (NKJV)
God knows us by our trust in him, if trouble comes he will see you through it.
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-8New King James Version (NKJV)
By trusting God we remain cool, calm collected, knowing that he has us in the palm of his hands and no harm or hurt shall come to us, even in times of financial trouble.
But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name
Be joyful in You.
For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;
With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
Psalm 5:11-12 (NKJV)
He defends us and shields us with his favour, God's favour can open doors you, yourself cannot see.
Instructions to the Rich
Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
1 Timothy 6:17 (NKJV)
Trust that God wants only the best for you, you are his most precious creation.
Know it, trust it, believe it.
Troubles, stresses, fears are going to come our way, it's apart of life, but it's how we go through our storms that define us, are we going to crumble or are we going to walk through the storm?
The psalmist said I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, he didn't say stand, sit or stay.
He said walk, he did even run through it, he walked.
Have a great day, stay blessed.
