If you are worried or perplexed about anything—you are not on the same page with God. And, if you are not on the same page with God, then whose page are you on?
Are your thoughts in agreement with God’s Word?
The phrase on the same page means to be in agreement. This week’s writing is preaching directly to me because right now I’m not on the same page with God. I’m troubled about something. One would think as much as I write about trusting and leaning on God, that I would be fearless and exempt from these brutal attacks. I’m afraid the opposite is true—I’m a target.
We learn as we go through.
Nevertheless, God uses these distressing moments to validate my writings. He is teaching me to rely on Him no matter what. Here’s the message I’m receiving from the Holy Spirit right now:
Get in line with My Word; turn to 1 Peter 5:7: . . . .casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you. (AMP)
Flip over to Matthew 11:28: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Now turn to Ephesians 6:17; My Word is your weapon against the enemy—Use It!
Every problem has a scriptural response.
The issue I’m facing is: worry. But perhaps your concern is about lacking the confidence you need for a certain task. Well, to be on God’s page you’ll have to turn to Philippians 4:13: I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Possibly you are feeling like no one cares. If you want to be on the same page with God, then turn to 1 Peter 3:12a: For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers:
My point is whenever the devil uses fear tactics or any other means to get us away from what God has to say about a situation, we should tell him to back it up with Scripture. Of course he won’t be able to. Therefore, our comeback should be: “It is written. . .”
