Let go and trust God. When you’ve done all you know to do, stand and trust God. He is faithful and he knows what’s best for you. Don’t try to be your own Savior. If you believe in Jesus, then He has already saved you from every issue that concerns you.
Decide today that you will no longer live in fear of the very thing that’s been distracting you from fully resting in Jesus.
If cancer is your distraction, confront it. Tell cancer: “I don’t like you, you’re not welcome here, and I will not live in fear to you. Jesus has purchased healing for me and I receive it and trust that he will deliver me from you, but even if he doesn’t I will not yield to you in any way. My savior, Jesus, is bigger than you and I fully trust him.”
If unemployment is your distraction, confront it. Tell unemployment: “I don’t like you, you’re not welcome here, and I will not live in fear to you. My God shall supply all of my needs according to his glorious riches in my Savior Christ Jesus. Nevertheless, even if he chooses not to, I will not give you the right away in my life. My Savior Jesus is bigger than you and I fully trust him.”
Whatever is distracting you, don’t be afraid of it. Confront it. And do so with confidence in your Father God and Savior Jesus Christ—they are for you, not against you.
Believe that, because it’s true.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego had confidence in God and he did not leave them hanging in thin air. Moreover, because of their confidence in God, they were not afraid of the distraction, known as King Nebuchadnezzar that came against them. On the contrary, they looked their distraction in the face and confronted it.
In Daniel chapter three, when King Nebuchadnezzar offered Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego a second chance to bow down to the golden statue he’d made or else be thrown to their death in the “blazing furnace,” they did not yield to the threat against their life. Instead, they looked King Nebuchadnezzar in his face and said:
“O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.” (Daniel 3: 14 -18)
Like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, don’t allow Satan to back you into a corner succumbed by fear. No, confront (with confidence in your Lord) the very thing Satan is attempting to snare you with. Tell it: “My God whom I serve is able to save me. He will rescue me from your power. But even if he doesn’t, I want to make it clear to you, that I will never yield you control in my health, my finances, my family, nor any other part of my inheritance purchased for me by my Savior Christ Jesus.
