The LORD says in Isaiah “MY thoughts are not your thoughts”.
That alone for me is a saving grace.
In the war-field of my brain - arrows of negative thinking try to take over. Weapons of thought destruction evade the space between my ears.
As a result, in the time of a snap of a finger- I can go from happy to sad. Full of positivity to negative. Full of hope and faith to fear and doubt.
Psalm 34:6 is such an amazing and powerful sentence. The empty (poor in spirit) man cried to the LORD (LORD, help me) and the LORD heard him and saved him. (Para)
We have that connection! We can tap into that.
I mean does that not blow you away? Is it not amazing?
Now, this don’t mean that you cry out to the LORD and say I need mo’ money!
No this is a heart cry. When you are hurting. When your thoughts become dismal, or you are heart-broken...
Our FATHER hears your cry. Loud and clear. And HE wants to deliver you. Keep on crying out to HIM who delivers!
Brooding or staying in that muddy mood; or worse, making it an advertisement on social media, calling and complaining our friends- those things don’t do a thing. Well, perhaps they do. They keep you stuck in the rut.
Asking for prayer - that’s a great tool! Repeating a comforting verse... you are getting there!
Top it off; cry out to the LORD and thank HIM for delivering you from the hands of the negativity that is binding you! Now, that will release you. That will set you free!
3 Must-do’s to free you up from that siege of sadness:
1. Ask for back-up (prayer)
2. Cry out to the LORD
3. Sing praises to GOD for your deliverance
It’s not hokey or magic! It’s the real deal! It works!
I know first hand.... why? for me it is sometimes a daily doing!
However, I am a warrior who NEVER battles alone when I cry out to the LORD!
Today’s plan: Make your battle cry to the LORD!
