Fellow Warriors, how are you doing this week? How is God working in your life through this study? I pray that you have used the appropriate weapons in your stress battles.
God has been working on the weapons that I turn to in my life this week. I have been craving God’s Word. There are several stressors in my life and the enemy is trying to get that foothold in my life. However, in my times of fear I have turned to my Father and His Word.
You may be asking yourself how do you develop the dependence for the weapons Tracie talked about in Chapter 9? It will not happen by itself. You and I must begin first by making the conscious choice for God and His weapons. By doing this, you will begin to crave these options first instead of falling into the trap of the world’s solutions to stress. In using the appropriate weapons (God, His Word, Spiritual Vitamins and Prayer), this will bring about the victory God wants to bring about in your life.
This process may be a little scary, but keep in mind the stress busting scriptures for this chapter:
I want you to get out your Bibles and look up these scriptures. Take some time and not only read the words, but also really think about what God is saying directly to you. We do not need to fear because God is with us not matter what trials come into our lives. God promises to be our refuge and strength. What more can we ask for?
