One certain night, I received a call that almost scattered me. At that moment I felt so bad that I even told the caller “I am sad… My day is scattered”. After sometime, I looked at myself and how down I had become and I said to myself “I am better than this, this is not who I am” I spent the night praying and dancing to the praise of our God! I took control of how I should feel by switching over!

:

I wrote something about worry in our daily lives and relationships some hours ago. I started by saying that it is not something you can run away from, however it is something you can defeat! Being worried is part of man’s natural traits. However, you can walk over it because your emotions are your subjects, your are not subject to your emotions. The devil holds on to our natural traits to get into our minds when we allow him.

:

Depression is the very simple way the enemy come to oppress you. When you begin to have fears over something, you suddenly get depressed when you don’t handle it. You must consciously rejoice in the Lord always. Overcome that anxiety by looking away from those things that bother you and looking up to God. 

:

It is not like worries won’t come, it will come as long as you are on earth but you are above it! When it comes, switch over! Do not pride in your worries, being worried is never an achievement… Deal with it by switching over! Do not let your joy be dependent on things of this life… Produce your own joy from within. The hope of our glory is Christ in us! Do not be consumed by worries, when it comes your way, be reminded that God cares! 

:

You think God is not interested? He is!

:

“Cast all your worries upon God for He cares for you!” – 1 Peter 5:7

:

Your life has been fashioned by God. Do not let your life be controlled by your worries, by the things you heard, by the rumours in town and by the things you feel. Magnify the voice of God’s word over every other voice you are hearing! Come on… Do not give the devil reasons to laugh! Many people stopped on the way because they were discouraged by what people said, they get so worried and they opt out! When people talk things that should get me worried, sometimes it truly wants to get at me but then I turn around and say “you can’t convince me to respect your words over God’s word!” 

:

“Always be filled with joy in the Lord. I will say it again. Be filled with joy.” – Philippians 4:4 ERV

:

You fight depression and worry from the place of victory! You carry Jesus in you, you have His fullness in you and He produces joy in you. You cannot tap from the abundance of joy in you when you are controlled by what you hear or what you see. You should be in control of what you hear and see, never pay attention to things that are against your happiness. I am writing this to believers in Christ because they have the ability and authority to bring forth joy from within. To be controlled by what your senses means to walk in the flesh… Switch over to the Spirit!

:

“And because you belong to Christ Jesus, God’s peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings. His peace can do this far better than our human minds.” – Philippians 4:7 ERV

:

Do you see that? Our human minds can be controlled and renewed. When we walk in respect to our minds, we keep seeing those negative things people said to us, we keep seeing these problems and mountains because the things of this life can register on the mind but we can choose where to fix our gaze! 

:

When people despise you, don’t think about it! Smile and say “I am not despised by God!”, When people hate you and talk rubbish about you… Don’t think about it, think about what God’s word says about you! Be in charge!

:

“Brothers and sisters, continue to think about what is good and worthy of praise. Think about what is true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected.” – Philippians 4:8 ERV

:

Paul and Silas prayed and sang to the praise of our God even in the midst of pains. They stopped seeing problems and started seeing victory! Worry is not part of our Christian life, Jesus said “You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it.” – Matthew 6:27 ERV

,:

Are you worried and depressed? Switch over! Switch off your flesh, switch to the spirit! 

:

I said, SWITCH OVER!

:

Rejoice in the Lord always!

God bless you!
