Recently I read where fear often manifests itself in excessive-planning. That is true for me so I usually begin my day with Psalm 46:10 which reads “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Before I still my thoughts, it feels almost like a popcorn popper! For me, it is important to get my thoughts calm before I start my day.
As I pray to see only what God sees, I have more dominion and can be aware if my thoughts try to darken, I can refute them and replace them with the Truth of God’s omnipotence, omnipresence and omniscience. The choice is always mine.
