Marilyn Hickey: Don’t Let Stress, Worry and Anxiety Consume Your Life

by | Jul 25, 2022 | Faith, Family & Relationships, Spirit-Led Living

Are you feeling weary, wondering if your troubles will ever end or perhaps wondering if you’ll ever be healed? Don’t let stress, worry or anxiety consume your life. You can come against those strongholds and be free from their destruction. If you realize that faith and fear are opposite—they cannot exist in the same place at the same time—then today can be your breakthrough day!

The devil is restless and wanders around looking for who he can attack. When we get restless and uptight, we’re getting into the devil’s territory. God doesn’t want you there. God wants you to be full of miraculous faith because when you’re restless, you don’t focus in faith. The devil is restless, but you can be anchored in your faith.

Replace your fears with faith, and witness a transformation in your life. Faith is a process, and you need to stand on the Word of God and simply believe.

An important key in ridding yourself of stress and anxiety is knowing that God wants us to rest and be refreshed in Him and not be anxious. The Bible tells us that on the seventh day, God rested from all His work (Gen. 2:3). So, man’s first full day with God was a day of rest.

Genesis 3:19 says, “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground.” Part of the human curse was sweat and stress. So today, turn over those things that just gnaw on your guts to God. When Jesus hung on the cross, He said, “It is finished.” That means the curse is finished, and we can have His rest.

Remember, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. In Isaiah 11:10, the Bible says, “…and His resting place shall be glorious.” Friends, that is the place where we have to turn over our concerns to God and rest in Him. God says rest is glorious because we’re resting in faith.
