The enemy(devil) sends in”stressors” to throw us completely off, and make us feel that we have to react right now, right away or all is going to go wrong. He wants us to act without praying and seeking the wisdom of God (Proverbs 3:5-6). We have to remember that the devil is a deceiver, and it is his mission to steal, kill and destroy. That’s his job, right? Well, it is our job to counteract his “stressors” with a Word from the Lord, “be still”. Take the time to seek God. The Lord is not asleep, the problem didn’t catch Him by surprise, His guard is never down, the Word teaches us in Psalm 121: that he never slumbers nor sleep. Cast every care, every fear, and every worry at the feet of Jesus.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.[a]
2 Chronicles 20:17
17 You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.’”
Be Blessed, Keep God first and Keep looking up
