OVER IT – CONSTANT CRISIS
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
Psalm 23:1 (NIV)
Key Idea - A person loses focus when fear exceeds faith.
IT CAN GET BETTER (EXAMPLE: KING DAVID)
My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death have fallen on me. Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me, I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.
Psalm 55:4-6 (NIV)
Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God...
Psalm 42:5 (NIV)
I sought the Lord, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears.
Psalm 34:4 (NIV)
HOW TO DEFUSE A CRISIS MINDSET
1. Find a bigger God.
The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.
Psalm 27:1-3 (NIV)
2. Maintain a broader Perspective.
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise — in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me.
Psalm 56:3-4 (NIV)
The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice.
Proverbs 12:15 (NIV)
3. Allow God into your Broken Places.
…you have freed me from my chains.
Psalm 116:16 (NIV)
When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, He asked him, “Do you want to get well?”
John 5:6 (NIV)
4. Establish some New Priorities.
Test me, Oh Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind.”
Psalm 26:2 (NIV)
5. Decide who you are living for (Hint: Yourself won’t work).
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Psalm 23:6 (NIV)
But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.
Joshua 24:15 (NIV)
