Apostle Grace Lubega
Philippians 4:6-7(KJV); Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Carrying anxiety and worry over circumstances is the one sure sign that you don’t know God.
The degree of your worry is the degree of your disconnection from the knowledge of God.
God is in the active business of preserving His own. Your welfare and protection are uttermost in His mind.
Think of the mighty promises He has made to you.
“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”(Hebrews 13:5). “I will give up nations for you” (Isaiah 43:4). “A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand but it shall not come near you.” (Psalms 91:7).
The scriptures overflow with promise after promise. More so, God did not merely make these promises. He put His name on the line to assure you of His seriousness about fulfilling them(Psalm 138:2).
What does anxiety do?
It looks at these great and precious promises and throws them in the waste bucket of fear.
Fear is believing the wrong thing about God when the devil whispers danger, loss or failure in your ears.
Do you truly know God? Why then are you afraid? Do you think He is so fickle as to abandon you when you need Him? Do you imagine that He can turn away when you cry to Him?
Always remember that He is a faithful God. He does not promise and not fulfil.
Refuse to worry because you know the God you believed. Kick anxiety out the window of your heart because you know Him.
His name be praised!

GOLDEN NUGGET: The degree of your worry is the degree of your disconnection from the knowledge of God. Refuse to worry because you know the God you believed.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. What a blessed assurance to know that I am watched over, protected, and preserved. The evil one cannot touch me because I am securely held in Your arms. I refuse to worry about anything. Today, I embrace Your peace and bask in Your eternal care. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
