Why am I anxious? asked David, how can we overcome our anxiety? Don let anxiety drive you crazy or control your life. That’s not the life God wants for you.
Why am I anxious?
“17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 If I would count them, they are more than the sand.
I awake, and I am still with you.
19 Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God!
O men of blood, depart from me!
20 They speak against you with malicious intent;
your enemies take your name in vain.
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O Lord?
And do I not loathe those who rise up against you?
22 I hate them with complete hatred;
I count them my enemies.” – Psalm 139.17-22 ESV
Until this moment, David has been blaming others but now he realizes that there’s nothing more he can do about that except than taking responsibility of his anxiety.
“23 Search me, O God, and know my heart!
Try me and know my thoughts!” – Psalm 139.23 ESV
This is the shift that David take from others being the problem into himself being the problem.
Nothing changes until I do
David came into a place where he said: “It’s not what is happening out there that made me anxious. It’s what I allow in here [my mind] to go undetected and unchecked.”
As you can see, it’s very important the way you think about it.
“24 And see if there be any grievous way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting!” – Psalm 139.24 ESV
Why are you anxious?
We cannot take everything and still have room for the peace of God.
When everything feels urgent is because you haven’t figured out what is important. And by saying yes to the people that doesn’t matter, you automatically say no to the people that matter the most.
Make up your mind.
It’s hard to pray for peace when it’s my own life who’s creating the anxiety.
Shift the intention out of you to give it a purpose bigger than yourself.
This should be a playful place free from stress.
The reason why the middle letter of anxious is I, is because it produces isolation. You should know that it’s not just you.
Now, take a moment to digest what you have heard.
God says: “You’re worrying about something that I’ve already worked out.”
