Then I prayed to the God of heaven - Neh 2:4

Ask God for skills and abilities!

Have you ever said to yourself  “I just can’t do this” or “how am I going to do this?” In some of our previous videos and blog posts we discussed how we should ask God to bless our plans and to give us wisdom and favor. Today we look at skills and abilities and if it is scriptural to ask God to give us skills and abilities to perform the work that He has called us to do according to His will and purpose.

Be persistent in prayer!

We look at prayer and we take scripture from Colossians 4:2-6 In the video for this post we discuss how prayer is a vital part of walking in faith and walking in paths of righteousness. We’ve learnt that Jesus is the Lamb of God who has taken away the sin of the world, we’ve learnt that we need to meditate on the word of God and that we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit as to receive power to walk in faith and to understand scripture so we can live out our salvation. Today we learn about prayer and how prayer is vital in the walk of every believer and how without prayer it is even impossible for us to be an effective witness to unbelievers.

Exodus into the wilderness – The journey out of fear!

So you have taken your first steps out of fear and anxiety. You are now on the road to exit depression. You have taken a step of faith and you have decided to accept the Passover lamb Jesus as your sacrifice for your sins. You have decided to believe in the Word of God and you are on your way out of Egypt (out of slavery to fear, anxiety and depression); but then those thoughts and feelings start to come back, you ask yourself, is this not working for me?

The Lamb is the way out

Exodus 12:3-6

“Tell all the congregation of Israel, on the tenth day of this month they are to take a lamb or young goat for themselves, according to the size of the household of which he is the father, a young lamb or young goat for each household. Now if the household is too small for a lamb to be consumed, let him and his next door neighbor take one according to the number of people in the households; according to what each man can eat, you are to divide the lamb. Your lamb or young goat shall be perfect without blemish or bodily defect, a male a year old; you may take it from the sheep or from the goats. You shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month, then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is to slaughter it at twilight. Moreover, they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel above the door of the house in which they eat it”

Have you partaken from the lamb? The lamb is Jesus Christ the son of God. Jesus is the way out of fear, anxiety and depression, He is the truth about you and the truth that shall set you free; and He is life, Jesus said in John10:10  “I have come that they might have life, and have it to the full”. In the scripture above (Exodus 12:3 -6) we are on the eve of the Israelites leaving Egypt (Bondage and slavery) The Angel of death was on his way and they needed an escape, in order for them to live, in order for them to be set free they needed to partake of the lamb.

Luke 22:19-20

“And He took the bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me. In the same way, after the supper He took the cup, saying, ‘this cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.”

Exodus from fear – Chapter Two (overcoming fear, anxiety and depression)

1 John 4:18 AMP

“There is no fear in love [dread does not exist]. But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who is afraid [of God’s judgment] is not perfected in love [has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love.]”

If we are going to be free from fear we need to grow into a sufficient understanding of God’s love. In Chapter 1 we learned that from the very beginning the tactic of the enemy was to have us question or not to believe the word or in the love of God. We also learned that God and His word is one. We learned that His word became flesh and dwelled among us and accomplished all that He set out to do.

Overcoming fear, anxiety and depression – Chapter One

To overcome fear and anxiety we need to begin where you always need to begin; the beginning. Genesis 1:1-31 tells the story of creation by the word of God, the phrase “And God said” as with the phrase “And there was” repeats itself throughout the chapter. We quickly deduct that when God speaks His word creates. We also read in Isaiah 55:11 “So will My word be which goes out from My mouth; It will not return to Me void (useless, without result), without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.”

Staying in Genesis (The beginning) we also read the first words of satan to man (or to the woman for that matter) Genesis 3:1 “Did God really say?”  It has been the agenda of the enemy from the beginning to get us to question the word and love of God towards us.
