Overcome Fear of the Future and DreadJun 21, 2022
When you think about tomorrow or about your future do you find hope or fear and dread?
Gas prices, food prices, your children, etc.?
What do some people dread for tomorrow? Some have had difficult pasts that have become the point of reference for your future and struggle to trust God and His promises.
How do you change the dread for tomorrow?
First, look for the door points of negative events that the enemy had the opportunity to come in and join your thinking. The enemy warps the perspective that God is for you.
It could be a home situation where you were blamed, shamed, or criticized a lot. You never knew when it was going to come. Then, you grew up avoiding events and people to stay out of shame or criticism. Did it hurt? Did you end up worrying about failure on a daily basis driven to be perfect in every situation? You are set up for a constant state of alertness in dread or anxiety about future situations. That's bondage!
What do you do?
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6:34 KJV
Bottom line! It's more than a positive confession or declaration of what we want. It’s about a heart issue. Who do we choose to really believe today? Recognize when fear is speaking to you and cast it down since it exhausts itself against the truth of God's Word - 2 Corinthians 10:5.
