Welcome to another week, and thank you for stopping by the blog. Last week, Jess (our favorite guest blogger) and I discussed the problem of Anxiety and those ‘Blah Moments‘ that we experience. Both topics resonated with me and prompted me to write this post.
I can’t speak for you, but as a Christian, my whole wiring is based on my belief in God and his purpose for me. My anxiety stems from not trusting God enough, and forgetting that he has all things figured out for me. This might be your reality too if you think deeply. Like me, you may want to trust God completely, and depend on him one hundred percent.
My former thought that anxiety cannot be cured has changed radically since my last post. I am now a firm believer that anxiety can be gone completely just like Joan said in response to me. I am experiencing for myself that it’s only a matter of trusting God and his purpose more. This happened through constant study of God’s word and conviction by the Holy Spirit.
The tips below are tips that are helping me build my trust in God. You might have heard them before and this is just a reminder. It is my hope that as you read on, you realize that faith and fear cannot coexist, faith must ultimately win.
Over to the tips;
Believe that you are right with God: A lot of times you think there is something you do that makes God pleased with you. Before you can trust God, you need to know that he is and has always been interested in you. When he sees you, he doesn’t see you as an unworthy sinner, instead, he sees you in the righteousness of Jesus, the child in whom he is well pleased (God is pleased with you!) Matthew 3:17. He loves you, and you did nothing to earn that love, so there is nothing you can do to un-earn the love. Accept that God loves you, is pleased with you, and you have been made right with him because Christ died for your sins. If you hold on to the devil’s lie that God is angry with you because of sin, you will let him win by not enjoying your father’s truth and grace which you need to trust him. Confess your sin and receive God’s forgiveness. Continue reading “Trusting God more| Practical Tips”
