BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING

I’m Currently listening to Hillsong Worship – Let There Be Light Album. I haven’t been able to do without this album this month. Every single song on it has been such a blessing, I can’t explain it. If you’re looking for ways to spice up your worship experience or devotion time. I’m recommending this album, thank me later 😊

So I’m currently at this point in my life where I should be dead worried because my service year is coming to a close. Around July, it dawned on me on how fast the year had gone by and this fear started creeping in, fears of what next, what’s going to happen after my Nysc year. At some point it was literally all I could think about.

I’m grateful for kingdom minded friends like Faith. A. I spoke to her about it and she told me about God’s permissive will and His actual plan for you. His permissive will describes situations when He let’s you do what you want but it’ll take a longer route for you to get to your destination.

After our conversation that day, I made up my mind to let God’s plan prevail over my life. Not like I’m not going to have dreams and goals, as a matter of fact I have lots of those, but my intention is to be led by the Holy Spirit. I mentioned to y’all that I started journaling again, this time I changed the game, this time I’m addressing the Holy Spirit, the one the Father has sent to me, the one who lives in me. It’s been really amazing learning to hear His voice. I told him about my worries and all I could hear him say to me was BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING. lol I’m like is that all? Wow. I read the scripture (Philippians 4:6) and for days this verse was the only thing I could hold on to.

Faith and Fear cannot be alive in you at the same time. Either you choose to have faith or choose to dwell on your worries. What I was doing most of the time was worrying, why worry when you can pray? When I really started praying about it according to the word of God I experienced peace.

Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV) – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, Says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

This scripture is literally everything, it’s okay if you don’t know the details of those plans but you can be rest assured that they’re good plans. How then do I know then that I’m in God’s plan? Or how can I be in his plan? Are you spending time with him by studying His word? Do you know what is word says about you? are you led by the Holy Spirit? Don’t forget that without him you can do nothing. Are you trusting in the Lord with all your heart or are you leaning on your own understanding?

I think one major reason why we doubt God is because we forget too easily. We forget how he brought us to where we are now. I remember sometime last year, how all I wanted so bad was to graduate with a first-class, God did it. I remember around this time last year, my mom was terribly sick, she could hardly walk but today she’s alive and healthy because God healed her, but why do I still worry? We forget easily! What you’re worrying about, have you prayed about it? Think back to something you wanted so bad and how God answered your prayers. If He started it, why doubt him now?

Philippians 1:6 – Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in me will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ

Two weeks ago, my friend called me and apparently she had the same worries I had earlier. I was able to encourage her based on the little I knew. One thing I told her to do was to stick with Jesus. It is impossible to be lost or out of God’s will when you are in Christ. Stop ignoring the Holy Spirit. He’s the greatest gift you have.

It is possible someone out there also needs to be encouraged, please stick with Jesus because without him in the picture nothing will make sense. This article I wrote a while back on how to spend time with God should be helpful. Remember, be anxious for nothing.

  5. When our identity in Christ is secure then the whole world could be crumbling around us and we won’t have a care in the world because the world don’t have us. We’re in Christ.
    Think about it.
    KEEP THE LIGHT ON!

  6. This really blessed me a lot. As humans, we often find ourselves worrying about our lives, the next step to take and all but God has promised that He’ll cater to all of our needs. I choose not to worry about life’s issues, I’ll rather get God involved and I can be rest assured that He will not leave me abandoned.
    Lovely write up baby girl 😍😍😍
