Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the LORD evil is avoided. When the LORD takes pleasure in anyone’s way, He causes their enemies to make peace with them. Proverbs 16:6-7.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Have no anxiety at all, but in all things hand them over to Me in prayer, petition, and supplication, with thanksgiving, and My peace which surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
This is My Word to you. Submit to it, resist the devil, and he will take flight.
It does not matter what is causing the anxiety, whether it is your error, misdeed, or another’s. Hand it over to Me and let Love (Me) take care of it. I know what to do. It may require you to apologize, make restitution, or put some things right, but have no anxiety at all. Anxiety does not help. It actually hinders you and makes you unable to love. Do not worry about tomorrow. It is always the next day. Each day is what you have to live and love in.
I pardon all your sins and fill your days with good things. It is not just for those who never sinned. Read the order in Psalm 103—it is someone who sinned, was sick, and was in the pit that I forgave, healed and rescued from all those things.
If you are in the pit, I can get you out. Look to Me that you may be radiant with joy and your faces shall not blush with shame. I will take you out of the miry pit and place your feet on a height and put a new song into your mouth! A song of praise!
I can turn your mourning into dancing and give you beauty for your ashes. Do you believe this? If you do, you will shout with joy no matter how deep a pit you have dug yourself into or someone else has thrown you in, as his brothers did to Joseph and as the leaders did to Jeremiah in the miry cistern. Or King Darius did with Daniel when he threw him in the pit of the lions’ den.
But even if you got there yourself, I can get you out. I can restore you, as the prodigal son was restored by his father. And I will give you rest from your enemies on every side. When I take pleasure in anyone’s way, I cause their enemies to make peace with them. Proverbs 16:7.
Let us go back to My Word to you and break it down: Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving make your requests known to Me. I told you not to permit any anxiety in your life about anything. You are not to live worried, fretful, and all tied up in knots. When Jesus’ disciples showed fear and doubt, He called them of “little faith.” This will ruin your joy (you cannot rejoice or enjoy anything in that condition), make you unfruitful, and will eventually destroy your health and ultimately your life. It will drive you into depression, mental breakdown, and suicidal tendencies. It is a tool of Satan and it can only be remedied by a good dose of your speaking in agreement (witnessing) with My Word.
Now, you may be saying that sounds great but you cannot seem to shake the anxiety gnawing at the pit of your stomach knowing the trouble you are in, whether it be financial, legal, medical, physical, or emotional. When you see huge problems and difficulties on the horizon it is hard to even pay attention to what is going on around you. It is like you are in a dark and threatening place that you want to get out of.
Let Me show you what to do. It is simply this: do not fight with the anxiety but fill yourself up with My love to replace it. Come to Me and make your trouble known to Me. Cast your cares on Me because I care for you. And I tell you to express yourself in prayer and petition. Ask Me for the result you want and let Me know the promises in My Word that you are relying on to obtain it, this will strengthen you in knowing it is My Will and that I will do it. And when you have given Me the problem thank Me for My answer as though you heard Me respond “Yes” to your request. Believe that you have received it. And declare the result with My Word whether you see it yet or not. See it with the eyes of faith and declare that you have the victory in Christ Jesus. Stand on My Word to you for healing, prosperity, protection and direction. Lift up your voice in grateful praise and lift up your hands to Me. Thus you shall enter My gates, My courts, and enter right to My throne with confidence in My Word to you.
And then just begin to love. Do acts of love for everyone around you even though they do not seem related to the problem. The more love you put out the more good and love will return to you. And when no one is around, instead of worrying, sit still and send out love. Imagine the problem is resolved—not that it will be but that it is—and try to feel the joy and relief you would feel in that situation. And love it. Send out love for the solution you want, love and thanksgiving to Me for bringing it to pass, and love for the people involved.
Love never fails.
Even if you sinned and caused the hardship that has come into your life or the lives of others, no matter how serious it seems to you, repent, and thank Me that I have already forgiven you in My Son and it is gone as if it never took place as far as I am concerned, and proceed to love. Through love and faithfulness My Son atoned for all sin and you can now receive Him as Lord and benefit from that. Then, through fear of the LORD evil is avoided. Proverbs 16:6. If you are intent on pleasing Me you will not purposely commit evil. Grace teaches you to behave in godly ways.
Not in penance and withdrawal but the giving of love and being faithful to My Word. Stop sinning, stop judging others, stop complaining, and stop worrying. You would be wise to avoid these things.
Let Me be very clear, even if you have sinned and caused a terrible problem, repent, and, if you have not already, take Jesus as your LORD, receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness and be cleansed in the Blood of My Son, give thanks, rejoice, and give love, love, love, and more love to everyone and everything, including those you wronged or who wronged you!
Do not worry about tomorrow. Seek the Kingdom today and tomorrow will be good. Even if you have been anything but a Kingdom seeker up to this day, begin today and watch your life change.
Reconcile with your brother today before you put a gift on the altar.
Once you turn to Me, I can prosper you anywhere you are. Once you begin loving and keeping My Word the rest will follow. I know those who love Me and I show Myself strong on their behalf.
I love you. Love is the answer to everything. For I am love.
