but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. – Psalm 1:2 (NIV)
Right now, we’re in one of the biggest storms our world has faced. If we’re not careful, we can easily get upset and discouraged.
The news, our friends, parents, and many other sources are constantly sending us messages of fear and terror. How do you combat all the negative emotions and fear?
Today’s Bible verse gives us some insight. If you are to remain planted in Jesus, you’ve got to pay attention to the things you think. If you’re constantly thinking about how you might die and how hard it is to be in your house, you’re going to be afraid and unhappy.
Today’s Truth: Swap fears for faith by thinking about what God says.
Instead, you should challenge yourself to pay attention to your thoughts. Instead of filling up on news and bad reports, consider listening to God’s Word instead.
Read your Bible, find a devotion that feeds you, and listen to worship music. As you focus your thoughts on God’s word instead of fear, everything will seem better.
You won’t suddenly come out of isolation or anything, but it will help your attitude and outlook during this time. So if you’ve been guilty of thinking negative thoughts determine to spend more time in God’s word. Replace fear with faith by thinking about what God says.
