Panic or Religion – A Devotional by Carol Bellemore

Lastly, brothers and sisters, no matter is true, no matter is noble, no matter is true, no matter is pure, no matter is beautiful, no matter is admirable — if something is great or praiseworthy — take into consideration such issues.” Philippians 4:8

I pressed my hand on my stomach, nothing. I attempted shifting round, ingesting one thing chilly, nothing. My unborn baby had both been quiet for fairly some time or one thing was improper. I had two decisions ? panic or religion.

Maybe you’ve got the identical alternative proper now in coping with a scenario in your life. I found within the fourth chapter of the letter to the Philippian church, (verses 4-9), a system that may assist us beat anxiousness if we settle for its phrases by religion and put them into observe.

Paul invitations us to rejoice in God, to not be concerned, and to convey all issues to the Lord in prayer. Subsequent he tells us to make it a behavior of selecting the place we place our ideas, and on what we feed them. No matter is true, noble, proper, pure, beautiful, admirable, glorious or praiseworthy — that’s to be our focus.

When my child went quiet, I made a decision to imagine that my child would “not die however reside, and would proclaim what the Lord has completed” (Psalm 118:17). Then I went to the physician’s workplace and was comfortable to listen to her lovely heartbeat coming via the machine. I’m conscious that the result might have been completely different, however I made a decision from then on to take care of issues as they got here from the perspective of religion, not panic. One step at a time is greater than sufficient for me to deal with.

For you, it might be selecting to recollect the great in somebody who’s damage you, and selecting to make peace with them. Perhaps it’s deciding to belief that God is holding the airplane you’re about to board in His care and has commanded His angels to look at over you. Or maybe it’s accepting that He loves you past what you possibly can ever think about. So, if you happen to’ve tousled, you may select to imagine it’s not over and switch to Him once more, understanding He’s not completed with you but.

Father, I come to you as a result of I would like your assist. I would like my ideas to be aligned with yours. I would like my thoughts to be reworked. Educate me to decide on religion over panic. Remind me of your fact when darkness fills my pondering. Remind me of your love after I stop to imagine it. Maintain me near you. I like you, Lord. Amen.
