Yesterday I was at work having these thoughts, as I was snuggling up with a former 23 week baby now term and doing great, and that fear just started coming over me. I have had a bible verse that I have came back to time and time again, but usually when I start getting consumed like that I just let it overtake me. Yesterday I decided, NO, I am not going to let this happen! I started quoting scripture in my head. "I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11. "He is able to do immeasurably more than all you can ask or imagine." Ephesians 3:20. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philipians 4:6-9. I know that I don't know what God's plans are for me, but I know that they are perfect and that I just have to trust in that. I mean who doesn't want perfect plans??
Well a few hours later, I realized that I hadn't had any negative feelings trying to overtake me and actually I hadn't even thought about anything IF. And at that moment when I was stopping to think about it, I wasn't having all-consuming negative feelings! The power of the living Word is...well.....POWERFUL!! I feel that satan was attacking me and I took him down with scripture! HA! Take that you meanie!!! I found my strength in God and it worked!! Imagine that;).
So I know that I am not done struggling with satan(I have already had some negative fearful thoughts this morning) but I know with God that I can overcome him, because God already has!
