Don’t Take The Bait

Anxiety along with other emotions definitly kill the mood. The scripture is very prominent about telling us how all things are possible through Jesus Christ. If that is the case. Why are all of us so bent out of shape? Why are so many of us aging before our time and falling under the stress of life.?

It's because of sin. Since the beginning of our human race Satan has tried to take us down. He enticed Eve with the fruit from the tree which God put in the Garden but still said do not take from it because they would surely die.

It is intriguing to why God did that. That is going into a rabbit hole though. The fact is that Satan is always trying to take a seat at the table that God is trying to prepare before us. He is trying to take our our joy and peace away. He does this mainly through people. People are the ones that cause most negative situations in our life.

But it's not the people themselves that we have to look at. It's who is working in the actions through the people. Trying to put a wedge between you and others but ultimately through you and God. This is why God said "For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places." That is in Ephesians 6:12.

Satan uses every door he can to bring negative thoughts into our head. Negative people around us to put negative thoughts. To stir up our frustration. To bring fear. To bring anger. To bring jealousy. It is our job to recognizing his motives and as he tosses an opportunity to take his bait we shoot him down with the word the way the living word did in the desert. Jesus.

So Philippians 4:6 says "Do not be anxious for anything. Wow that is an almost daunting thing to comprehend with all of the heartache and crisis we see in this world. But if it is there, then it is possible. We just need to follow the rest of that scripture that says in everything pray and present your situation to God. Not only that do it in thanksgiving. Not complaining. Not in fret. Not in anger. But in thanksgiving. There is no room for thanksgiving and all of those others. No in this time, it is even more perilous for us Christians to step up to the table God is preparing for us and lay all of burdens at the cross. Pray daily. Read your word. Because you want your heart and mind to be filled with it. Your heart will be full of something. If it is not fillled with God it will be filled with the world.

If your heart is full of God then you can be prepared for whatever anxious situation tries to present itself. Eve knew what to do in Garden. Not eat the fruit. That's what God told her to do. We know what to do now. We are not going to eat the fruit satan tries to entice us with now.
