And the greatest of these, is LOVE.
It’s amazing what a little doubt will do to a person. You’ve heard the saying
“Sow a seed of doubt, watch it sprout.”
Fear. It’s the greatest enemy of our time. It’s the #1 weapon the devil uses against God’s people and sadly, it’s working. I know, I lived in it for more than three years of my life. Fear doesn’t come like gale forced winds. It slowly sneaks up on you when you’re not paying attention. Then, all of a sudden, your lost and confused and you feel something you’ve never felt before. You reach out, but no one seems to be able to help you. Your scared to death and life feels utterly impossible. You can’t breathe and your thoughts are racing through your mind faster than you even realize what your thinking about. Before you know it, you don’t know who you are anymore. Fear has a way of making a person turn themselves inside out. Breaking everything in them and bringing them to their knees begging for mercy. It is relentless and never gives up. Fear comes in many different shapes and forms. From OCD to GAD. It hides itself in PTSD. Anxiety poses as “I just can’t” and depression is like an annoying friend that your trying to get ride of but just won’t go away.
Are you searching for a way to win? Are you looking for help to beat it except everyone keeps telling you there’s no cure. You can only hope to manage it because it’s hereditary. I’m here to tell you, that’s a lie. You CAN BEAT anxiety, OCD, GAD, Depression, PTSD and every other form of mental illness out there posing and telling you, you’ll never win.
He is THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE
Jesus made a way for you to beat your fears and he made it through FAITH! Faith is the substance of things hoped for and not yet seen! (Hebrews 11:1) Hope. Hope in Jesus. God said “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” Psalm 34:8
Take everything you have and lay it at the feet Jesus and see if He won’t open up the Heavens and pour you out a blessing. God NEVER intended for any of His children to live in fear. His desire is for you to live in complete freedom. Loving Him, Talking to Him, Thinking about Him, Being with Him. So, cast all your burdens on Him. Jesus took the cross for you. He already knows He wants you and He loves you, now you just need to fall in love with Him!
