Anxiety and How to Apply Psalms
I have been dealing with “stuff” and I know that from the past claiming and applying the attributes of God found in Scripture… the Psalms are really rich – the enemy, instead of being the Edomites or Moabites or any other “ites”, is satan… today my devotions too me to
Psalm 83 (NLT)
O God, do not be silent!
Do not be deaf.
Do not be quiet, O God.
Don’t you hear the uproar of your enemy? (God, I really need your help)
Don’t you see that your arrogant enemies are riding up?
They devise craft schemes against your people; they conspire against our precious ones.
“Come,” they say, “let us wipe out Israel as a nation.
We will destroy the very memory of its existence.” (They are coming at me from every way!)
Do to them as your did to …
They were destroyed at …
Let their mighty nobles die…
Let all their princes die… (Lord, I know of your power as your have shown many times before, in history and in my own life!)
for they said, “Let us seize for our own use these pastureland’s of God!” (God, don’t let them take away my green pasture where you have led me!)
Oh my God, scatter them like tumbleweed, like chaff before the wind! (May you remove them – and their arguments as far as the east is from the west! I know that You alone have the power to protect me and separate me like this)
As a fire burns a forest and as a flame sets mountains ablaze,
chase them with your fierce storm;
terrify them with your tempest. (Father, totally cleanse me and remove them)
Utterly disgrace them until they submit to your name, O Lord.
Let them be ashamed and terrified forever.
Let them die is disgrace. (Lord, let them be sent into a herd of pigs! )
Then they will learn that you alone are called Lord, that you alone are the Most High, supreme over all the earth. (Then because they will be submissive to your superiority, I and others will be able to acknowledge You as the Most High, the Lord of Lords and the One true God!)
Honestly, just writing this posting today has removed a LOT of my anxiety, so if only 1 other person reads this and finds some comfort, then I am pleased that from my trial someone else will find some peace…
