Enemy · Faith · Fear · Peace

He presses… not panics…

He presses…
He doesn’t panic…

So when panic tries to take hold…
in the middle of finishing up…
I resist… I question Him…

Do You want me to leave…? or is this just a distraction…?

Before He answers… I remember… remind myself…
He is a God of peace…

When His pressing comes…
it comes with peace…
never panic…

So I press on…
through the panic…
finishing what I intended…

Peace returns…

Then the phone rings… offering an opportunity to serve a loved one… a blessing I would have missed… had I run…

And I see the enemy at work…
as if He lifted a veil… to show the unseen…

The enemy watches all… takes note… sees what he can stir up… where he can distract… disturb… distress…

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around
like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 
Resist him, stand firm in your faith…
1 Peter 5:8 ESV
Don’t let that demon devour your peace…
steal an opportunity to bless…
move you from where you need to be…
Panic is never from Him…
Press on…
Question…
Wait…
For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness,
but one of power, love, and sound judgment.
2 Timothy 1:7 HCSB
