This #ThoughtfulThursday Susanna shares how God provides confidence amidst anxiety …
Verse of the day:- “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength” Philippians Ch4 v13
The last few months have been very strange for all of us and we have all dealt with it in different ways. Home has become my SAFE place, probably because we’ve had those words drummed into us… “Stay Home, Stay Safe!!”
So when going back to work was mentioned, I suddenly became very anxious, something I rarely experience. This morning when I was reading my devotional for the day I read this verse which spoke to me.
My early morning thoughts can sometimes be anxious ones until I get connected with Jesus. When I invite Him into my thoughts and whisper His name, I am able to break free and my day will brighten with His help. I must focus on Him and I will find peace in His presence.
We gain confidence through knowing that Jesus is with us, that we face nothing alone. Anxiety stems from asking the wrong question “If such and such happens, can I handle it?” The true question is not whether you can cope with whatever happens but whether with God we can handle anything that occurs?
It is the God and Me together factor that gives me the confidence to face the day cheerfully and without worry!
