Inspirational: Hope to Handle Your Anxieties By Finding Ultimate Control!
Hope for the Anxious!
to help you handle your anxieties.
At some point,
we all will have feelings of anxiety,
and when it shows up we want to
get rid of it as soon as possible.
The good news: There is help, so have hope.
“We wait in hope for the LORD; He is our help and our shield.”
— Psalm 33:20
Anxious, Fearful, and a Lack of Control
Anxieties show up for a variety of reasons. Why they come, and to what extent they come, varies from person to person and situation to situation. Typically, a sudden change in life triggers feelings of anxiety, fear, and a lack of control.
Anxiety often comes when we feel as though our circumstances are beyond our control. The pressures and stresses of life can make us feel unsure about the future and cause us to worry and be anxious. An overwhelming sense that we have lost control can overtake us.
“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
— Isaiah 40:31
Hope, Help, Peace, and Ultimate Control
Anxieties do come, but we have hope and help. God clearly tells us what we are to do when worries and concerns arise. He tells us in Matthew 6:25 to not be worried about our lives, and in 1 Peter 5:7 he tells us to cast all our anxieties on Him, because He cares for us.
No doubt, a sudden change can leave you feeling unsure about the future. However, there is never a time when God is unsure. God is in control even when your life becomes torn apart by the pressures of the world.
Anxiety may come when you feel like your circumstances are beyond your control, but nothing is beyond God’s control. “The LORD reigns; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.” (Psalm 97:1)
Do you wonder what happens to your peace and joy when anxiety approaches? Your source of true peace is Jesus Christ. When sorrows and worries come, He calms your heart. When financial anxieties and difficulties increase, He provides for each need.
God tells us to cease striving and know that He is God. (Psalm 46:10) Be still within your heart and allow Him to do for you what you cannot do yourself – calm your fears and anxieties.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
— Romans 15:13
Good news: You do not have to handle your anxieties on your own. God cares for you. His love is unconditional, and His Word promises that He will meet all your needs. Be still and know that God is the superpower of all powers and your life is in His ultimate control. Let His Word be your inspiration and hope.
May you have abundant joy and peace, overflow with hope, and live a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you –

Jeremy Camp performs his song “Healing Hand of God” live on Air1 radio.
“Healing Hand of God” Song Lyrics:
I have seen the many faces of fear and of pain
I have watched the tears fall plenty from heartache and strain
So if life’s journey has you weary and afraid
There’s rest in the shadow of his wing
I have walked through the valleys the mountains and plains
I have held the hand of freedom that washes all my stains
If you feel weight of many trials and burdens of this world
There’s freedom in the shelter of the Lord
I have seen the healing hand of God
Reaching out and mending broken hearts
So taste and see the fullness of his peace
And hold on to what’s being held out
The healing hand of God
I have touched the scars upon his hands to see if they were real
He has walked the road before me he knows just how I feel
When you feel that there’s not anyone who understands your pain
Just remember all of Jesus’ suffering
Cast all your cares on Him for he cares for you
He’s near to the broken and confused
By his stripes our spirit is renewed
So enter in the joy prepared for you
“He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.”
— Psalm 147:3
“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”
— Isaiah 57:15

Growing Prosperity – What Does the Attitude of Obedience Have to Do With Prospering?
The Heart of Obedience
Manifestation also comes a whole lot quicker and easier when obedience is combined with the right attitude.
How about we take a look at the attitude of obedience?
We know the blessing of God follows obedience to His Word, but the attitude you have in your heart is important too.
The Attitude of Obedience
Many people obey God’s commands but they do it with a bad attitude. 🙁
“If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.”
— Isaiah 1:19
Notice this verse also includes our willingness be mixed with our obedience; in order to prosper and receive abundance. When we step out and act in obedience to the Word of God, regardless of what area, we should do so with a cheerful heart. 🙂
God loves a cheerful giver! (2 Corinthians 9:7)
If you are giving tithes and offerings, or honoring your father and mother, or worshipping God, or walking in love, or forgiving, or praying, it should be done with a positive and willing attitude. When we do what the Bible says we will eat the good of the land.
The opposite side of cheerful obedience is to be grudging or unwilling. The person who obeys, but has a wrong attitude receives a different reward. Keep in mind; we do not have an excuse to disobey. We simply need to adjust the attitude of our heart to line up with our obedience.
Here is some good news: The Lord searches the whole earth to show himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him. (2 Chronicles 16:9) Perfect here means to have a completely willing heart before God.
Now is the time to start putting this into action. Let’s choose today to not only obey God, but to keep a right attitude when we do. God can do something with us when we have a willing heart. At this very moment He is searching to show himself strong on our behalf and help us prosper and abound.
May your willingness and obedience fill your life with growing prosperity!
Be blessed to be a blessing –
Wisdom Stability of the Lord – Isaiah 33:6
The Stability of Your Times is Found in the Lord!
“And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of your times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure.”
— Isaiah 33:6
This video didn’t turn out like I intended, but the verse is still a good one! 🙂
It is also interesting, because at our mid-week service tonight, my Pastor taught some on how salvation includes not only our eternal spiritual salvation, but also the other benefits of God including spiritual, physical, and materially blessings.
He also pointed out that we need to be knowledgeable about what is available to us so we can claim it. When I look at this verse it relates…
If we want true stability we have to look to God’s Word and get it through the salvation He provided. And further wisdom and knowledge of His Word will help us tap into the great inheritance provided us. A healthy fear of the Lord, that causes us to obey His Word is a treasure greater than we can receive in this lifetime!
God bless you –
