Believe With Everything In You

27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? ~ Matthew 6:27

do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:6-7

Oftentimes, the Church falls for the lies of the enemy. How? This is what we say, “Well, I did everything I know to do. I guess the only thing I can do now is to pray.” Prayer, or seeking Jesus, is not our last resort. It is not the thing we can do after all else fails. No! Prayer is what we do first. Our attitude should be:

Let me take it to the LORD in prayer, first.

But instead, we wrestle with things that we could give over to the LORD. We stay awake all night worrying about things that we can’t control and things that will never happen. There are studies that show that anywhere between 85-91 percent of what we worry about never comes to pass. I even saw a post where it basically said something like, “Worrying works because 90% of what we worry about never happens.” This is one of the biggest lies of the enemy.

Worrying is counterproductive, not only from a physical standpoint but a spiritual one. Because when we worry and refuse to go to God, we are calling Him a liar. We’re saying that He won’t protect us. He won’t rescue us even if He’s promised that He will. Even if He’s never failed before. Why do we do this? Because we know that God can do all things, but we don’t fully believe it. We don’t believe it in our hearts, only in our minds.

In order for faith to overcome fear, we must believe the Scripture with all that is in us, even if it doesn’t happen overnight. Even if it takes constant prayer. Even if it takes reciting the same verses over and over again until we believe it with all that is in us.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Believe With Everything In You.
