Be Anxious for Nothing...and I Mean NOTHING!
As a former depressed person, the enemy tries to bring that spirit back but I have learned to resist him! (James 4:7) I have learned to use the weapon God gave me which is HIS word coming from MY mouth. Here are some scriptures that I speak for certain things. You
have to know this—you shall have what you say. Life and death are in the power
of YOUR tongue. The more you keep speaking “the devil is grabbing at me” or "he's on my back" the
more he’s going to come at you. The Lord put him under your FOOT! Start speaking what God says about it, whatever
“it” is. So, if you are feeling anxious about anything, look at
Proverbs 12:25 NKJV Anxiety in the
heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad. When I’m
feeling uneasy or anxious about something, I open my mouth and say “Lord, I
thank You for my good word.” And I keep saying it over and over, well each time
the anxiety tries to rise up, and before I know it I am calm
again because the Lord always sends the good word.
John 16:33 NKJV These things I have
spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have
tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." For this
one, when I am feeling defeated, I start speaking “Lord, I thank You that you
have overcome the world, which means I have overcome the world as well. I thank
You that through You, I have peace.”
John 14:27 AMP Version Peace
I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the
world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let
them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do
not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and
unsettled.]For this one, you can say “I will not allow myself to be
agitated or disturbed. I will not allow myself to be fearful or
Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV Be anxious for
nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let
your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all
understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.For
this one, follow the instructions to pray about EVERYTHING along with
thanksgiving. Then, say “Lord, I thank You for Your peace, which surpasses all
understanding and that this peace is guarding my heart and mind through Christ
Jesus.” See, you can’t get verse 7 to happen if you don’t follow verse
I hope this helps you the next time you're in a battle for your peace. Open your mouth and FIGHT!
Earlier today, I was reading Proverbs
22. I got to verse 14, which says “The
mouth of an immoral woman is a deep pit; He who is abhorred by the Lord will
fall there.” I then checked the cross
reference scripture and it lead me to Ecclesiastes
7:26, which says “And I find more bitter than death The woman whose heart
is snares and nets, Whose hands are fetters. He who pleases God shall escape
from her, But the sinner shall be trapped by her.” I stopped and thought about how many men I’ve run
across who are either married to or are dating bitter women. It’s heart wrenching to see. I’ve seen how
venom spewed from their mouths will tear down a man! Mostly when I am moved to
write, it’s to encourage my sisters in their growth as women. Today, I am moved
to help men who may not realize they are headed for trouble. I do not claim to be a counselor or a therapist,
but I will share what I’ve learned. 1.Listen to
her when she speaks. Listen to her intently!
Ask God to open your ears so …
Second Timothy 1:7 NKJV says "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." The Contemporary English Version (CEV) says "God's Spirit doesn't make cowards out of us. The Spirit gives us power, love and self-control."
The world tells us "oh, a little fear is healthy." No, that's not true, especially in the Kingdom of God. Fear in any area is an entry point of the devil. He will use that fear to creep in and cause us to make decisions out of fear. He'll take that little opening and grow it so big until we are living our lives completely out of fear. Fear produces anxiety, which leads to depression. (Proverbs 12:25). It also produces pride and we know pride is a destroyer.
I had some deeply rooted fears in the area of relationships. I was severely afraid of being rejected and abandoned because that's all I knew. That fear caused me to make some very bad choices and accept things that were not …
The date was Wednesday, March 30th, 2016. I sat along the edge of my bed munching on my nightcap – a Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Almond ice cream bar. I was engulfed in tranquility being I had attended my regular bible study that evening as well. I heard a knock on my bedroom door. It was my daughter. She entered my room and strongly suggested that I sit in my “Jesus chair,” the chair I sit in when I am studying the word, reading the word or praying. Right then, I knew something serious was about to be said. I replied “Nawwww, I think you better sit in that chair. I’ll stay right here.” With blankness in her eyes, she broke the news “Mama, I’m pregnant. “ I stared at the wall and said “This has got to be an April Fool’s joke.” I turned to face her and tears were streaming down her face. No, this was not an April Fool’s joke.
As a mom, I always rehearse in my head how I would react if my kids told me certain things, not really knowing if I would ever actually be in the situation. U…
