I heard this today, “Let Me worry for you…..”
Now I sensed the twinkle in our Father’s eye as He said this. We know that our God does not “worry” about anything. He knows the end from the beginning.
There is NOTHING He does not know the outcome of. And what does He tell us? Not to worry. Worry is fear. Fear has torment.
How many sleepless nights have we all had worrying about something? That is a tormenting spirit. And worry does not change a thing. It only causes STRESS and DIS-EASE. So hear the Spirit’s comforting Voice tonight:
“Beloved. My People perish for lack of knowledge. Here is truth, My Child. The enemy would weigh you down with stress and burdens and cares and worries and fear. He knows it will do damage both physically and mentally and emotionally.
Therefore, cast ALL your cares upon Me. You were not meant to carry them. I carried them for you at The Cross.
I AM the God who cares for you. You were designed to be CARE FREE. You were created in My Image. I do not worry or fear or doubt. It isn’t in Me and it isn’t in you, My Child.
Fear is of the devil. He goes about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. But you are hidden in Christ.
He cannot cast his net of fear upon you as you keep your eyes upon Me. Shalom PEACE is the opposite of dis-ease.
Do you see this, Beloved? I did not give you a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.
I have given you the Spirit of Peace to reign in your heart. Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give unto you: not as the world gives give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
I AM the Prince of Peace. I AM the Prince who has rescued His Bride from the hand of the enemy.
So rest in Me, Little One. You have nothing to fear when you rest in My Everlasting Arms. My Shalom Peace will heal every broken place.
I AM He Who rescues you from the hand of your enemies and enables you to serve your God without fear in Holiness and Righteousness all of your days.
I AM declaring over you that you shall dwell in Peace. As it was prophesied, “My People will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.”
Yes, Beloved. This is your portion. Come, My Weary One and I will give you REST. Let Me take over.
Let the Spirit have His way. I will work while you rest. My Shalom Peace will Overshadow you as you look to Me. I hide you in the Shadow of My Wings.
Remember Me on your bed, My Child, think of Me through the watches of the night. For I AM your Help; Sing for joy in the Shadow of My Wings! Cling to Me for My Right hand upholds you.
I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have Peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
“Prince of Peace” by Michael W Smith
DIS-EASE : Lack of a feeling of ease; uneasiness. A condition of the body or one of its parts that impairs normal functioning and is typically manifested by distinguishing signs and symptoms. This “lack of ease” meaning has extended into a specific not-feeling-well kind of lack of ease as a general term for “sickness, illness.”
STRESS : A state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances. Medical research estimates as much as 90 percent of illness and disease is stress-related. Stress can interfere with your physical functioning and bodily processes. High blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and heart disease have been linked to stress factors.
