ANXIETY    “WORTH CONSIDERING”   3/12/19  (Across my desk this morning)   

Today’s Scripture
“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.”  (Prov. 16:9 )

All in God’s Timing
This world is a fast, go-go place where people want things “my way, in my time and for my life.” Many people think that the world will give them what they are trying to get, and it’s up to them to take what they want. But that’s simply not true. Yes, you are called to action, and you must go out there and live life, but God has blessings for you that He wants you to be patient and wait on. You can plan your whole life, all the way to the end, but the Bible says that the Lord determines your steps, not you. Give yourself over to Him and be patient and wait upon the Lord and His blessings!

A Prayer for Today
“God, help me not to be impatient, but to wait upon You and what You want to bless me with. Give me the strength not to give in to the way the world runs life, because I know that You have all of my steps designed. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

My Comments:
Actually Anxiety is a state of fear that often plans our course in life.  It may be of one kind or another but no fear to do something is ever generated by or from GOD.   Fear is Faith going backwards.  Fear was what got Job into trouble,  Job 3:25. 
He was anxious concerning his Health, Children and Money so the LORD allowed lucifer to take it all away.   So when the LORD had delivered Job from all of his fears HE blessed him more in the end than HE had in the beginning,  42:11-16.  Job got to see a 4th generation of grand children and lived 140 rich and fruitful years. And in all this Job was delivered from all of his fears so he could enjoy the blessings.  So take this to heart that what you allow yourself to greatly fear may just might be what the enemy needs to make it happen.

2 Timothy 1:7 [Full Chapter]  Amplified Bible

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

So when you start to move in an anger or fear Adrenalin towards fight or flight, it is a good time to sit down and drink a good cup of hot chocolate or something and pray about it.  It is amazing how much that we get into anxiety about is basically just one big fat lie of the enemy. 

In the story of Job I don’t really remember what happened to his wife but it is interesting and almost humorous that she did not have a part in his issues of Fear and Anxiety.  But she sure did not have his back when he lost everything.

Yours,  in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><
