Get Off the Anxiety Cycle
Last Friday night, all night long, the Lord took me to the wood shed and told me over and over “Larry, get off the anxiety cycle.” He would whisper it to me in my sleep, wake me up and speak to my spirit and mind, and then put me back to sleep and through my dreams say “get off the anxiety cycle.”
The saying “be taken to the wood shed” was what was said years ago when a parent wanted to discipline a child. When I was being disciplined in my spiritual “wood shed”, the Lord showed me that being on the anxiety cycle, of where I am living in the anxious zone, is self-destructive.
For that reason, Paul said in Philippians 4:6,7 “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.”
Jesus loves us so much. It is because He loves us so deeply, that He desires to move us out of the anxiety cycle of this world, into His eternal presence and power, which is the faith, hope and love zone.
