prayer releases panic

Once again it is time to claim the promises of God, but you and I cannot just claim these promises.  We must walk them out.  Let panic flee as prayer rises in each of us.

So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

That is walking it out.

Do not be afraid of sudden fear Nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes;

Direct word from God.  Don’t be shocked when disaster comes, and the best way to deal with it is to pray.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

Yes, I quoted that one yesterday too.  Love it.  Believe it.  Living it out isn’t always easy.

But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!

Prayer changes the way we look at people and the way we respond.  That is a big deal.

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Prayer will fill us with what panic steals from us.  Change how you look at things and people by changing who you talk to about the situations around your life.

So we fasted and earnestly prayed that our God would take care of us, and he heard our prayer.

What God has done before, God will do again.

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

What we think about, who we think about and what we think makes a huge difference.  Fix your mind on Jesus (see Colossians 3:2 and Hebrews 12:2) and see how panic gives way to peace because of your prayer life.
