Never Have A Heavy Heart (a free book excerpt from Alfred)

 Philippians 4:6-7 AMP

Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. [7] And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].

   When you give your life to Christ. You belong to Christ. You ought to drop all your cares and worries at the feet of the master.

   Jesus said "be anxious for nothing."

   That means that when you give your life to Christ, you need to consciously decide to be worried about nothing.

   Nothing in the world should have the ability to make you feel worried. 

   Whether you are walking on the street and you hear gunshots near you, don't be worried.

   Whether you are gobbling down some food and the person who gave you the food just told you it was poisoned, don't be worried.

   Whether you are in an airplane and the engine gives out in the middle of your journey, don't be worried.

   Whether you put on the TV and they say there is a viral outbreak coming to get you, don't be worried.

   Whether you are staring down the barrel of a gun held by a crazed serial killer, don't be worried.

   No matter what happens don't be worried.

   You may be reading this and say, "Ah! This is all unrealistic. You're just preaching. This is just one of those faith sermons. If you were faced with one of these situations in real time you would be singing a different song."

   No!!!! That is your problem. You think like a man. You think Christianity is just a nice religion for man that stipulates a set of rules that makes him improve himself and improve his relationship with others, hence creating a better society.

   No! That is not what Christianity is 

   Christianity is God alive in man. Christianity is the replacement of Humanity in man with Divinity.

   In Christianity you now have the life of Christ.

   Nothing in this world can be bigger than that.

   The reason you still think it is natural for you to be afraid when someone points a gun in your face is because you don't know these truths. You haven't mediated upon these truths until it engulfs every corner of your mind.

   It is written that we should meditate on the word day and night. You can meditate on the word till it dominates and guides your mind; and even then don't stop meditating. It wouldn't take God time for your meditation to bear fruit in you.

   You need to meditate.

   The reason why something can happen to you that can make you worried is because you haven't meditated on God's love. 

   Meditate on God's love. Make a habit of meditating on God's love. Make it a frequent habit. 

   Rather than allowing your mind entertain negative thoughts and worries, think about how much God loves you. Just sit back and meditate and savor the insatiable depth of God's love for you. Think about the fact that he loves you so much that he died for you in order to save you.

   Some people day dream about someone they have a crush on loving them. Rather than day dreaming of human love, day dream of divine love. Daydream of the love from the one who is the father of love… The one who is Love personified for God is Love.

   When you meditate and have confidence in His love, nothing that can ever happen to you or around you can make you worried.

1 John 4:18 KJV

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
