FIGHT or FLIGHT?

We all face times where it’s more convenient to trust in our fears and worry rather than to trust in our God. The path of least resistance becomes an attractive option when we fail to see the light of God illuminating the spiritual answers to our carnal dilemmas. Imminent danger arouses our flight or fight responses and this physiological reaction is sometimes birthed from our false perceptions. Unexpected trouble exposing the holes in our faith (Matt 6:30). Simply put, if we trust in our worries more than we trust in our God we simply miss the mark(sin). Through the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ, God has guaranteed us the richness and fullness of His constant abiding love, presence, and protection. I know at times it came be difficult but, in lieu of fighting or fleeing we should opt to turn our ambiguities into gratitude and remember all the times God has seen us through difficult situations. Worries flee before a spirit of gratitude. I Peter 5:7 reminds us to, “Cast all our anxieties on him because He cares for us.” During times of testing, I have learned that meditating on these biblical truths will help drive the ominous clouds of fear and worry away!
