Turn your attention to God

1 Mar

People who worry a lot have their eyes focused on the consequences of events that had not yet happened. They feel vulnerable, so they expect the worst. If they would turn to God, they could find in HIS character the answer to their vulnerability. The Bible tells us

that God is in charge. Nothing happens in this world that is beyond the knowledge and control of God.

>psalm 103:19

He is sovereign Lord of all. Worriers feel that things are out of control – that something terrible is about to happen and they can’t stop it. when the questions raised by those feelings create anxiety, worried need to remember these important facts about the God who is in charge:

1.) God is everywhere

> Psalm 139:7 – http://bible.cc/psalms/139-7.htm

> Jeremiah 23:23 – 24 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?

“We can’t get to a place where God is not. There is no place, no matter how alone or vulnerable we may feel, That God cannot be. He is everywhere.”

2.) God knows everything

> Psalm 33:13 – http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/

“He knows how afraid we are, how bad we feel, what scares, The more worried, the more we act if God is ignorant of our situation. He knows how everything will turn out. He knows our needs.?

3.) God is all – powerful

>Genesis 17:1 – http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/
?search=genesis%2017:1&version=NIV

“Worries feel that no one has the power to stop the bad things that might happen, not even God, they think that they can keep them from failing an exam or losing their job or being killed in a storm. But God’s power has no limits. The answer to the question, ” Is anything too hard for the Lord?”
