DON’T DO IT
God has made it possible for you to have a powerful, victorious mind that is one-hundred percent free from fear and worry. Think about it. When you learn to guard your heart and mind, there is no reason you should ever be worried, depressed, confused, or defeated again!
The moment you recognize you are becoming anxious, your mind is troubled, afraid, or filled with worry and unbelief then you must take aggressive action. You must not allow your mind to dwell upon the problems or circumstances you are facing. You must recognize immediately when Satan begins to attack.
Like an offensive or defensive guard on a football team, you must exert spiritual energy to grab hold of every negative thought that tries to enter your mind. As you do this and begin to set your heart and mind upon God and His Word, He will guard your thoughts and keep your mind in perfect, constant peace: “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee” (Isaiah 26:3).
Paul told the Philippians:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7, NIV)
Jesus said not to worry about what you will eat, drink, or wear (Matthew 6:25). Paul said not to be anxious about anything. Yet, today the majority of Christians spend a great amount of time and energy worrying about the cares of this life and the circumstances they are facing until their minds are depressed and stressed by the enemy. DON’T DO IT
You may be thinking, “Brother Conrad, you just don’t know what I’m going through. I try not to worry, but I just can’t help myself.”
You can help yourself!
Your mind can be free from worry!
Your mind can be free from depression!
Jesus told us not to worry. He paid the price and made it possible for you to have a one-hundred percent victorious mind. Don’t do it! It’s as simple as that! Guard your heart and mind. Recognize thoughts of worry, doubt, fear, unbelief, failure, and defeat and stop them from entering your mind. DON’T DO IT
Make this declaration:
I will not be anxious about anything. In everything, by prayer and petition and with thanksgiving, I will present my requests to God and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
