Stress and depression are NOT of the kingdom.
“In quietness and confidence is your soul anchored“ Philippians 4:19; you must learn to hear the direction of the provision. Stress plugs hearing. Many “confessions and affirmations“ for provision are spoken in stress, not in faith. Faith rest! Learn to bring yourself to peace in the middle of the storm as an offering to me. Proverbs 3:34b “God’s grace and favor will flow to the meek.” (Passion translation). The meaning of the word “meek” is ‘humbly patient when provoked or gentle and kind’. Whichever definition you choose, they both require the spirit of God to bring about gentle kindness and humble patients.
It’s difficult for me to bring myself to peace when I am in the midst of a “desperate“ situation. My mind runs to every answer available while I offer the Lord many great ideas for how we could get the provision to me. Resting in quiet confidence is seldom my “go to“.
When Wisdom first introduced the idea of bringing everything inside of me to the altar of peace, it seemed ridiculous! Offering my peace and confidence to God as a sacrifice would included doing nothing, saying nothing, and thinking nothing except for, “Papa is my GOOD FATHER, He has always taken care of me, and he will Always take care of me". As I have learned to practice bringing my self to peace and offering that to God, I have felt faith grow inside of me at a speed that I never thought possible. I have also experienced supernatural provision in proportions that I could not previously imagine. “Learn” implies that its going to require practice. The more you practice the easier it becomes. We are creatures created for peace. “Seek peace and pursue it.” Psalm 34:14
