For the past few weeks many, at Summit Church of Christ, have been reading their Bible’s daily. As such we have stumbled across many wonderful chapters that have enriched our walk with God. This week I came across a real gem.

At least 10 times, in Luke 12, the words fear or anxiety are used. Through His words I can infer who are able to walk in fearless faith. 

1.       Religious leaders who have no secrets.

2.       God’s children who respect Him.

3.       Those who place their lives under God’s protective guidance.

4.       Those who acknowledge God before men.

5.       Those who do not blaspheme against the Holy Spirit.

6.       Those who turn to God when persecuted.

7.       Those who are on guard against covetousness – instead they are rich towards God.

8.       Those who, without anxiety, allow God to take care of them.

9.       Those who are ever watchful – ensuring that they live as responsible children of the Kingdom who have been given much.

10.   Those who, perceiving Christ’s mission to die, live perceptively towards reconciliation.

Friend, with a few weeks into the New Year, can you say that you are walking just a little closer to God? 

Sowing Kingdom Seeds

If you could envision a perfect life, what would it look like? 

While I believe Christians can reach their dreams I am certain this is gained by sowing Kingdom seeds – not by a sense of entitlement.

A sense of entitlement causes pollution in the human heart. This displays itself, according to James 4, as envy and wicked desires. The fruit that one will reap from these evil “seeds” are:

1.       Constant fighting

2.       Killings

3.       Lack of prayer

4.       Lovers of the world

5.       Grieving the Holy Spirit

6.       Slandering

7.       And boasting about the future

James 4, (4:6–10, 14–15), instructs us to rather display humility. The results of sowing in humility are:

1.       God will give us grace

2.       God will lift us up

James identifies such a humble sower as one whom: submits to God; resists the devil; repents; and depends on God for the future. 

Friend, what seeds are you sowing in the morning bright and fair? Are they seeds that seek to cultivate the passions at war within you or are they seeds for the Kingdom in the noon day’s glare?

_____________________

Galatians 6:7–8 (ESV) — 7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

Anxiety or Peace By Neville Buchanan
According to Reuters General Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is an overwhelming problem in America (http://reut.rs/N4z9ik).
In 1994 …15 percent had ever suffered from anxiety disorders. A 2009 study … raised that estimate to 49.5 percent … 117 million U.S. adults.
What is causing this overwhelming problem? Obviously we have more to worry about today. We are more “plugged in”. Our smart phones keep buzzing, ringing and vibrating. And if we suspect any undiagnosed condition, with a few clicks, we “know” exactly what is wrong. Unfortunately there is nothing scarier or more dangerous than a patient self-diagnosing. 
At its core GAD is an emotional/mental problem. All the medication in the world will not bring about a complete cure. In many cases the pharmaceutical solution, for GAD, is addictive and leaves the patient unable to function optimally. 
The treatment is a two-step process. 
• Firstly, figure out how to get plugged-out by: limiting your TV news intake to 30 minutes per day; and turning off your constant data alerts (this will also save your phone’s battery). 
• Secondly, turn to God. The Bible has the cure for General Anxiety Disorder. 
Isaiah 26:3 (ESV) — You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. 
Since GAD has to do with our thoughts, reading and meditating on God’s word, for at least 15 minutes a day, is the perfect prescription.
Following the study of God’s word by continual prayer is imperative. Begin with 15 minutes of concentrated prayer. Then, throughout the day, when your thoughts seek to focus on anxiety, turn to God instead (Psalm 121; 1 Thess.5:17). 
Friend, may you be “anxious for nothing” as your mind constantly stays on God.
