Putting an 'X' thru Anxiety (Day 5)

  Digging to the Bottom of Your Fear Many of you have fought the giant of anxiety for years, suffering from the paralyzing effects of panic, anxiety, or depression. I would be a fool to try to prescribe a simple Band-Aid of spiritual-sounding mumbo jumbo. But, as I sit on the other side of this valley, I can tell you that God does not want you to lose hope. During my journey, it was important to realize my “anxiety” wasn’t a thing in and of itself. Rather, my anxiety was a symptom of something else. I found myself saying things like, “I’m not going to be able to make it to work today, my  anxiety  is acting up again.” Or, “I feel like my  anxiety  is rising up, I better go lie down.” I was acting like anxiety was a cause rather than a symptom.

The Enemy might be telling you right now that reading through this journey “thing” is not going to work either. He’s saying,  Don’t get your hopes up, friend. Things are never going to change for you. But, you must remember that when the Devil speaks he never leads us to the truth. Your giant may be big, but your giant is not bigger than Jesus . Today, Jesus wants to break the power of the lie that says otherwise, and tell you again that He is bigger than whatever you are up against . The question today is which voice will you choose—the liar or the One who speaks truth. You have the power, no matter how helpless or broken-down you feel, to choose what you set before you today. You can fix your ey
