Daily we have ourselves and our sisters overwhelmed by a plethora of things- raising children, handling responsibilities of life, dealing with strong-willed family and friends, stress in the workplace- all things we feel we can’t live with – it raises our anxiety levels.
No matter what the specifics are, the way to overcoming circumstances that overwhelm us is to take each step forward with God.
If fear comes upon you- the moment you feel it- draw close to God. The Bible tells us …
“Draw close to God and He will draw close to you…” (James 4:8)
God’s presence with you allows His love to fully penetrate and saturate your situation. The more you experience God’s perfect love, the less fear you will have and your anxiety will dissipate. The less fear you have, the less anxiety you feel.
Ask God to reign in your overwhelming situation. Declare where you are and where you need to be. You need to be standing on Holy Ground. God is greater than anything you are facing.
“We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies.” (2 Corinthians 4:8-10)
