How to replace anxiety with peace.

Anxiety is a feeling and it's very common in our nature. However, anxiety can be dangerous if it's not treated correctly. There are many options in the world like psychologist or psychiatrists many people look for help. Looking for help is the right thing to do, but we must seek guidance and help in the word of God. In the bible and in our relationship with God we can find the solution to this problem. Let's learn a little about how to replace anxiety with peace.

The word of God says in Philipians 4:6

Do not be anxious or worried about ANYTHING,

Anxiety is the equivalent of not trusting God. And in this verse we are called to not be worried about any thing. Nothing should be worrying us. Now, all the circumstances around us can lead us to that state if we don’t take care of it. When Paul says “anything” he means nothing without restrictions, no possibilities, no spaces, NOTHING!

Then, how we can replace or exchange the anxiety that invades us sometimes with a state of peace? The bible says that it is possible and give us a way. Philippians 4:6 says again:

Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.
PHILIPPIANS 4:6 AMP

How we do it?

We come to presence of God with prayer (that is our way of communicating with God, vital part of our relationship with Him). We express our petitions accompanied of thanksgiving (that is our way of asking God for His will to be done in us). Then, we make our requests known to God in a specific way.

All of this is part of an active life of prayer, we speak… We express… We make requests… We give thanks. This provides to us an outlet for anxiety. We liberated ourselves, we left the heavy burden that from the beginning we should not have carried. And instead of this, we receive peace that surpasses everything. Even if you are in the middle of the storm.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

May this be a way for all us who are in Christ to replace anxiety with the marvelous peace that ONLY God gives us.

Lead me in the Everlasting Way

Its 3:06 am and while I should be sleeping, I am here meditating in God’s word. Have you been talking to God recently? You know, sometimes the circumstances around us drained us, misleading us to other places rather than God’s presence. The way of the Lord is best, the guidance and lead of God in our lives is necessary. And, for that there must be a relationship with Him.

More than writing a post about a review, or about things I like, or about a few bible verses we should read, I’m here writing about some encouragement for you, because I have been encouraged by Him. Behind every blog there is a human being writing content to uplift others. That person also need some lifting up too.

While I was reading the book of Psalms I went directly to Psalms 139. A Psalm of David about God’s omniscience and omnipresence. It’s a powerful psalm about how God formed us, knows us, cares about us and lead us in the right path, because He already knows everything.

O Lord , you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up [my entire life, everything I do]; You understand my thought from afar.
PSALM 139:1‭-‬2 AMP

Knowing and internalizing that God knows everything about gives me peace. Gives me rest. Gives me a real and clear understanding about God’s character. I know that if you read this Psalm right now, you will receive peace. And even, your thoughts about yourself can change drastically. Because if there still a small amount of doubt about our existence and purpose in this life, clearly and powerfully that doubt will go away.

For You formed my innermost parts; You knit me [together] in my mother’s womb.
PSALM 139:13 AMP

If you need to rest, seek God. If you need answers, seek God. If you need guidance, seek God. If you need Him to take the lead in your life once and for all, seek God. Let God lead you in His ways, His everlasting way as David asked Him. All you have to do is seek, ask, knock and believe

The bible, the book that contains the Word of God, the alive and effective Word for all of us, gives us 5 bible verses that will help us rest, receive new strengths and continue the journey. HERE there are 5 bible verses that you and I must remember this Christmas.

1. I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose–I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]
PHILIPPIANS 4:13 AMP

2. He gives strength to the weary, And to him who has no might He increases power.
ISAIAH 40:29 AMP

3. ‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’
ISAIAH 41:10 AMP

4. Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually [longing to be in His presence].
1 CHRONICLES 16:11 AMP

5. The Lord is my strength and my [impenetrable] shield; My heart trusts [with unwavering confidence] in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I shall thank Him and praise Him.
PSALM 28:7 AMP

There is no better place we can be this holiday season than in the presence of God. Seeking his strength, his guidance, resting in Him and praising his name. Christmas time is an amazing time, but the time with God is vital to really enjoy the season.

Look for his face, seek him always, praise him every moment!

How to wait in the Lord and His promises

How to wait in the Lord and His promises

Waiting in the Lord is one of the most difficult things we can do, but it is one of the safest things for us. Perhaps, you have received promises in your life from God and today you are still waiting to receive them. Today I want to talk to you about how we can expect and wait in the Lord and His promises.

How to wait in the Lord and His promises

When we wait on the promises of God, we are waiting for God to move his hand in our behalf.  We are waiting to see the fulfillment of his promises in our life. Waiting on God is nothing but patience. And the bible speaks to us about patience.  According to the Dictionary of Bible Themes, patience is:

The quality of forbearance and self-control which shows itself particularly in a willingness to wait upon God and his will. Believers are called upon to be patient in their expectations of God’s actions, and in their relationships with one another.

We must be willing to wait patiently in the Lord. But, this is not about how much or little we can wait, but our attitude while we wait. This is the key to how we can expect in God.

How to wait in the Lord and His promises 2

The Amplified Bible says in Galatians 5:22 that:

But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

Patience is one of the fruit of the Spirit and I love how this version refers to the word.  It says, that patience is NOT the ability to wait, BUT HOW WE ACT WHILE WAITING.

How powerful is this! – Sometimes we wait in the Lord, but we wait and complain. Sometimes we wait, but we fight with God.  Sometimes we wait, but we forget to put it as a priority in our life.  Sometimes we wait, but we completely forget His promises.

If this is how we act while waiting, I do not believe that we can grow and mature in God, much less we are demonstrating that we fully trust His perfect will for us.

The question is: HOW ARE YOU ACTING WHILE YOU WAIT ON GOD?
