Not to mention enlighten you to your everlasting supply of DIVINE BOTOX that awaits if your heed His word and follow His ways.
This is mainly due to my "confusion" as to why God is not intervening, why is this happeneing, what is the impact on me, my family etc.
God knows the intensity and the seriousness with which I take the mantle He has placed on me, of raising my family, teaching and motivating, empowering women (and men) in Life in Him, and in writing and yes, a book eventually.
He knows I am purposefully determined to accomplish His will, that is, in the context of what He has told me to do personally, and I stess about that, in not achieving the same.
*Please note here that I have come to realise all my failures are in reality the things that are going to be the vechicle to my success's accomplishing all in Him, its a failing forward thing, but that's another story altogether.
When I am consumed with what is going on, be it even consumed and stressed about doing His will wearing the mantle to bring Him glory, I am more focused on me, my issues , my this n that ...than I am on Him.
Stressed and all the while trying to justify my stress because I can say "well what I am stressed about is really all about HIM."
phil4:4amp, and it does not leave it at that but it further it encourages us in v6 "Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition ("definite requests"), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.
The psalms frame it like this "Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart."
Francis Chan in his book " Crazy Love" (pg41) it says this "When I am consumed with my problems - I actually convey the belief that I think the circumstances are more important than God's commands to Rejoice."
In other words, Francis Chan says, that I have the "right" to disobey God because of the magnitude of my responsibilities (or issues and prblems if you like gf)
Both STRESS and WORRY reek of ARROGANCE Chan writes...and it sceams and declares we are forgetting we have been redeemed, forgiven, are alive on the planet for HIS glory, forget that we are heaven bound to never hurt again, that we are carved in the palm of his very hand and that in the context of GOD and his strength, our problems are but a "pffffft" i.e. small indeed, or miniscule in fact.
We glimpse His Holyness, His Granduer, we sing and praise and worship and stand in awe of all He has done, and is to do, and yet are dumb enough to forget and at the first sign of a rocky boat or hint of turbulance we skip a breathe and discount HIM.
it all looks the same to God, stress and worry about carnal things or kingdom things ..He calls it like it is .....sin.
stress and worry are arrogant and naive and reek not only of arrogance but of the stench and putridness of the enemy.
(eph4:27msg) Whilst this verse actually talks about in your anger do not sin, I think it is also asking us to take heed of everything contrary to truth, like the sin of stress and worry , well they do fall into that catagory do they not?
Next time you fell stressed or are tempted to get your worry on ( sometimes it takes others to show me that I am even stressed ) dont yield, grant or allow the devil to lump this wrinkle causing and aging sin on you.
It is common knowledge in the Health idustry that being stress free and worryless will extend your lifeThat PEACE does in fact increase and assist in your heart coondition and hence, circulation and skin and extends your natural life ......
Bless you my Friends and sisters (and brothers they need wrinkle free too) .............I pray your day and week is stress worry free, and that you will see a refreshing fill every area and crease of your lives and faces (hehe) as YOU shine for Him
