Dealing with anxiety

il_340x270.927295891_ki5mPhilippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Take a moment to meditate on this verse. I find myself getting anxious from time to time and I have to remind myself that I have nothing to be anxious about, all I have to do is call upon my father and he will make things right whatever it is. So what can you do to help deal with your anxiety? First of all, remember it is the devil that wants us to be anxious. Second, we have to start in our minds and set our minds on the right path. We know that with God, all things are possible and we know that if we trust in the Lord with all our hearts, he will direct us.

Think about this. I love how in the book of Job, after God has been quiet the whole time he then starts to speak in Chapter 38. One of the questions he asks is, “where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?” I am going to ask you the same question? So how can you not put your faith in the magnificent God who created the heavens and the earth? The God who makes it rain or snow, or the God who simply says ‘peace be still’ and the winds and the waves calm down. How can you be anxious with such a father? He is there, so fear not. Do not let fear and anxiety distract you from your relationship with God. God does not make mistakes, He will not let you fall. Trust Him that whatever comes your way, He will give you the resources you need to get through it.
