Manna For Today: Sunday, January 10, 2016
Anxieties, worries, trials and tribulations are a difficult part of life. Thank God He gives us scriptures that help us put them in perspective and, more importantly, to overcome them in every detail of our lives.
Consider the following words from God as antidotes to whatever you may be confronted with today:
1. I have no need to fear anyone or anything.
Psalm 27:1 – The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2. I listen carefully to His direction and correction.
Isaiah 41:13 – For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’
3. I am settled in my heart in Him.
Ecclesiastes 7:9 – Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, for anger rests in the bosom of fools.
4. I am ‘one-thing’ minded.
Luke 10:41-42 – And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. 42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
5. I live in an anxiety-free zone because of Him.
I Peter 5:7 – …casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
6. I reject scorekeeping as a strategy for processing life and relationships.
I Corinthians 13:4-5 – Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.
7. I am well-equipped and capable in Him.
Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Take these resources our Father has made available to us and use them to His Glory!
Peace and blessings!
