Take your eyes off the tailspin portrayed to you daily in the media and by the one who feeds you a steady diet of lies. Take your eyes off the chaos which feeds a sense of life being out of control. Where is your hope? Where are you looking for stability?
“I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”Psalm 121:1-2 (ESV)
I am your source of stability in the unravelling of this world. I am the rock on which you stand. I am the one who brings you help. I am your safe place.
“God is a safe place to hide, ready to help when we need him.
We stand fearless at the cliff-edge of doom, courageous in seastorm and earthquake,
Before the rush and roar of oceans, the tremors that shift mountains.
Jacob-wrestling God fights for us, God-of-Angel-Armies protects us.”Psalm 46:1-3 (MSG)
I am strengthening you, my bride, to stand firm with your head held high, unassailable by the enemy as you put all of your trust in me. I am removing your fear of the future as you choose to receive the fullness of my love for you. I have made you to be the head and not the tail, the one who forges a way through the days ahead with confidence and with hope. I have made you to be one who declares my hope to those spinning out of control, those caught in the cross winds and whirling in the storm. I have made you to be one in whom I hold out my hand of rescue to those in need of my deliverance.
Activation: Ask Holy Spirit to show you where you have been drawn into the ‘tailspin,’ and allowed fear, panic or anxiety to plant a seed within you. Uproot anything that he shows you and ask him to give you a fresh revelation of his love for you.
Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.Psalm 139:23-24 (NIV)
Now may God, the fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with his super-abundance until you radiate with hope!Romans 15:13 (TPT)
