THE body is designed to function without powerful brain drugs. It isn’t even debatable that the human body does not need to have the “help” of Big Pharma to cope. When I am under attack, my thought is not that I need a therapist or I need a drug. My first thought is to be still and talk to God. And He always calms me and restores me to peace.
6Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think on these things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me, put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4.
And please don’t think I have not had burdens. I have had to deal with childhood trauma, attacks from evil people, and I have been able to prevail all through the very real help of God.
I dare you to pray and let go. Go to His throne and be silent and let your words be few. Seek His help, His wisdom, and He will send help your way. Trust your troubles are in His hands. If you insist on carrying the burden after He said to cast your burdens on Him because He cares for you, the problem is your lack of faith. If that is the case, pray for Him to increase your faith.
“7Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5
