Daily encouragement from Trinity Vineyard Church

Antidote to Anxiety

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6

Anxiety is the great distraction. All of your emotional energy is diverted to fuel the vast demands anxiety produces. Instead of living to benefit and bless others, you marshal strength to combat the gravitational pull of self-absorption. During these seasons, the small things of life that would usually not phase you appear as giants. Anxiety has a way of distorting your perspective.

What is the antidote to anxiety? How do you recapture God’s perspective on your circumstances? The first step is to replace your anxious thoughts with intentional prayer. You have the precious gift of unhindered and uninterrupted access to your Heavenly Father through prayer. The more specific you are in your prayers, the more dynamic your experience of God’s peace will be. Be prayerful. Be specific.

Consider writing or typing the items in your life right now that are generating anxious thoughts and feelings. Cry out to God in prayer over each item and express your desperation for God’s perspective and God’s provision. God wants you to seek Him. Your relationship with Him is the most important relationship you will ever have. Draw near to God.

Begin to anticipate God’s response as you present your requests in prayer. Watch to see how God brings clarity to your confusion. Take note of the strength God provides to help you navigate the troubled waters. God may eliminate the obstacles or empower you to overcome the obstacles. Either way, you will come to know God by experience!
