Devotional Nugget

I shared this yesterday, but somebody needed this reminder today.

Don’t panic!!

Sometimes you can leave familiar only to feel as though you’re lost or wandering. You can step out of faith, only to feel like you’ve stepped in quicksand. You can leave all you know behind and it’ll feel like the worst mistake you made. Change jobs and find yourself struggling worse than before or simply feeling as though you’ve failed.

God told me to tell you, don’t panic … ask for help.

I don’t know who this is for, but what you’re going through at this very moment isn’t for you to panic. Yes, you made the move or decision and now you’re feeling like you made a mistake, you’re lost, wandering and unsure of what to do … don’t panic, ask for help.

Maybe you’re embarrassed by how things worked out, don’t panic. Ask for help. The enemy is making you feel like the biggest fool, don’t panic. See, it’s the enemy’s job to make you question what you heard God say. It’s the enemy’s goal to make you oppose what you know God promised.

The enemy, the devil, your doubt, your circumstance and storm will NOT have the final say. All you have to do is stay calm, especially in the face of struggle, turmoil, chaos and confusion. People talking about you, don’t panic. Being lied on, don’t panic. Cutoff, eviction, repossession date drawing near, don’t panic.

Instead … Stay calm, don’t panic, and ask for help.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” — Philippians‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

  1. this was so needed and had to share it with my sister and she stated it was definitely for her. Thank you

  2. THANK YOU, MY SOUL NEEDED TO HEAR THAT.
    I KNOW YOUR VERY BUSY, BUT I REALLY MISS YOUR DAILY DEVOTIONS ON A DAILY BASIS. NOT EVERYONE HAS LEARNED HOW TO ENCOURAGE THEMSELVES IN THE LORD YET AND A LITTLE ENCOURAGEMENT FROM A DEVOTED, TRUSTED CHRISTIAN CAN CHANGE LIVES.
