Take a deep breath, you are not losing your mind. Trials are a part of life – and these trials are worked out for your good (Romans 8:28). The world works against this truth.
There have been no shortage of “dooms day” scenarios lately. That should be of no surprise. Why? The media knows how powerful fear and doubt is – especially when misinformation is the “soup du jour”. Propaganda in the digital/ tech age takes gaslighting to a whole new level. The intention is to wear you out and rob you of peace – so much so that you’ll willingly take any offer that promises to get you out of the twilight zone. Don’t believe the hype!
How do we recalibrate to discern what the truth is? The source of truth – “But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.” (James 1:5-6)
So you see, keeping you in doubt and fear is how the world will control you – because your eyes will be off the Father. Take heart brothers and sisters and remember that Jesus has overcome the world!
