Does it ever feel like the world is crashing in on you? Or at least, YOUR world? Whether you are so far behind with your deadlines at work, or you have so many things to do around the house and you simply cannot catch up, OR you are in trouble and you just do not know what to do. Being the age that I am 😳, I have been through all of this, and so much more! So I definitely understand. Whenever I feel this way, there is one verse that always seems to stand out, and helps me TREMENDOUSLY! I will speak this verse, several times to myself, in fact. I will go to a room, close the door, and begin to meditate on the Lord, getting STILL before Him.
During these times, I have to keep reminding myself that whatever fight I am in, I don’t need to do anything BUT be still, and let HIM do the fighting. The battle is the Lord’s, not mine. To be still and not do anything when I am feeling desperate, or anxious, is very difficult. Because if I react based on what I feel, I’m gonna to lose! Sometimes the battles are big, and I am unable to settle down. I have to call upon the Lord. He is the only one who can remove fear from my heart, because perfect love casts away fear.
The battles on the outside may not come to an end anytime soon, but the one inside of me WILL end in His presence. As He works on my behalf, He gives me peace that passes ALL understanding. I am still before Him, He will take control of what I cannot.
