Another year has gone and this time of year finds many battling trials that can seem impossible and challenging. God tells us in His word that with Him everything is possible (Matthew 19:26).
Depression and anxiety is not uncommon in general, and in this season, whether it is the winter storm, less sunlight, financial issues, relationship issues etc.; it can be even more of a battle. I am writing this today to encourage you that our God is BIGGER than any circumstance that we face. He cares about our needs and tells us to cast our cares upon Him because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7).
I know how hard grief is having lost many, and unfortunately during this time of year we see many losses. I want you to know that I am so sorry if you are suffering a loss and grieving at this time. God set me free from the occult and I know our grief makes us vulnerable and you can get tempted to see a medium or some other sort of psychic. I must strongly caution you to never see a psychic! Please turn to God as He is the one who loves you, and will minister to you in your sadness. Psychic mediums are communicating with demons, not our departed loved ones. The Lord says He is close to the broken hearted and crushed in spirit in Psalm 34:18 and this I hold onto whenever I have grief in my spirit.
Though this is a new year, the best news is that in Christ we are NEW CREATIONS! We are set free and can walk in the victory of Jesus. Please don't let the devil steal your joy that is found in Christ alone. Please hold onto God's promises and eternal life is for us as children of God. Whatever season you are in now, all things here will pass away but we will go on to be in glory!
I am praying for each and everyone of you to be blessed abundantly, I pray for your families and friends, and pets! I pray, too, for the lost and that they would come to saving faith today!
