Give Your Mind A Vacation

Satan likes nothing more than to distract believers from seeking God. One of his most common and successful tactics is to entangle believers' minds with negative thoughts. If our minds are divided with problems, we'll be unable to put God first. Do not be tricked by Satan's schemes. Instead, trust in the One who can provide total peace.

No matter how difficult our circumstances seem, no matter how tempting it is to sit around wondering how to solve our own problems, the Bible tells us we're not to take these burdens upon ourselves. Worry, anxiety, fear, and depression are not of God, and He can provide deliverance from these paralyzing conditions.

Take the words of 1 Peter 5:7 to heart: "Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." God loves you infinitely and perfectly. He never intended for you to walk through valleys of fear, insecurity, and uncertainty alone. He's the Great Shepherd waiting to guide you and direct your path. (Proverbs 3:6)

Give your mind a vacation from worry by turning negative thoughts immediately over to God. When Satan tempts you to take matters into your own hands, lift up this simple prayer, "Lord, I cannot handle this situation on my own. I submit my concerns to You. Help me release my negative thoughts and trust You completely. Amen."
