Do you ever wonder why God says to be still and know that He is God? Today’s political climate is a prime example of not being still and reacting to what is unfolding politically with the Federal Government shut down, and worrying at some level. The nation is focused on the President and Congress and when will they resolve the issues at hand? Federal employees are especially concerned as they are not working or being paid. Filing for unemployment insurance seemed to be a good alternative except that now we hear rumors that those Federal employees will be paid retroactively, which will then create an overpayment!
As an American and tax payer I must admit to sometimes being caught up politically with all the negative stories and press. I have had to remind myself that God is still in control and that He works behind the scenes in every area of my life and yours. This would include what is going on politically! So I say to you to release the political stress and let God do what He does best! Stop reading negative news and refrain from heated discussions that will increase your heart rate and create any unnecessary tension. Believe it or not, the enemy thrives and loves when we are in chaos and not focused on the blessings God has given us. How can we focus on blessings when all those around us are focused on the economy and complaining?
Allow God to take control of all the worry you are carrying, allow the tension and all the desire to control leave your mind, body, and soul. Pray that God reveals to you that He is in control, and is behind the scenes and that you will focus on a renewed mind free from negativity and heated useless debate. Allow God to bless you with peace, presence, and an unlimited supply of love! Focus on knowing that God is on your side! Say to yourself if God is for me, then who could ever be against me? No one can be against me because God covers me! When you begin to reset your mind on the blessings God wants you to enjoy instead of what the rest of the world wants you to focus on, life will simply shift from negative to positive. Negativity and worry will not affect you! Be still and know that He is God friends. And as always, stay blessed and in His favor!
Be still, and know that I am God!
I will be honored by every nation.
I will be honored throughout the world.”
