I welcome you to this wonderful month. What an awesome year; it’s being from one level of glory to another and I give God all the praise. I know you also have testimonies of God’s faithfulness, and you will have many more before the year elapses in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
This month, I shall be discussing a very crucial topic with you. This topic is important because it is one of the guarantees to your achieving that long awaited testimony. I know there are things you have waited for all through the year and it seems like this year is running out already without you receiving that blessing. The truth is: There is just one key you need to apply and that is Don’t be anxious! The Bible says:
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God (Philippians 4:6).
To “be careful” means to be anxious and anxiety is defined as an uncomfortable feeling of nervousness or worry about something that is happening or might happen in future; or something that causes a feeling of fear and worry.
People get worried so much about just everything. They are anxious on what become of them in the future, what they would eat, what school to attend and various worries that bring about anxiety. At the root of anxiety is fear and as a Christian, you are to walk by faith and not by fear. The bible says:
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
Truth is: there are times things will not turn out the way you want it. There are other times when God is preparing you for something greater at His own timing. This requires for you to be sensitive in the Spirit and wait patiently for God’s package for you. The Bible says:
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts (Isaiah 55:8-9).
Understand that: Anxiety is a universal killer disease, which cannot be cured by medication. Someone said: “The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith and the end of anxiety is the beginning of faith.” So many people are afraid of the next moment and when asked why, they cannot explain it. This is because fear is a captor and it has its agent anxiety to keep you from seeing the brightness of the future ahead of you.
The effect of anxiety can be devastating. Spiritually, it can cut off your relationship with God and take away your joy. Moreover, without joy you cannot gain access to God, Who is the Giver of all good and perfect gifts. Anxiety takes you away from believing that God will do what He has said He will do, in His perfect time.
God’s plans for you are always big; they cannot be compared to what you think. Moreso, quality takes time. So, do not give in to anxiety. Your best approach at the period of your wait is described in this Scripture:
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing (James 1:4).
To receive God’s glorious plan for you this year, you must fight anxiety and get free from it. Resist every plot of the devil to keep you agitated and afraid of things that are a walk-over for you in faith. You shall make it in the name of Jesus Christ!
However, to receive help to be totally free from anxiety, you need to be born again. Being born again qualifies you access to a faith-filled life that counters anxiety. The good news is, you can be born again by just saying this prayer in faith: Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank you for saving me. Now I know I am born again!
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name! Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through email@example.com, OR call 07026385437 and 08141320204.
