Overcoming Anxiety


Overcoming Anxiety

Matthew 6: 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you

Kingdom: A realm of Authority and Power.  Rulership.  Dominion.

Phil 4:6 Be anxious for nothing…  NKJV

Worry, fear, anxiety, stress, frustration, disappointment, disillusion… Emotional overload… Drama….  all these slander and contradict every promise in the Word of God.  They are outside the Will of God for you.

Notice Jesus is dealing with things that causes all the above.  The crux of the matter.  He’s talking about Survival.  Living.  And He knows the Worries and fears we face in life and our anxiety about the future…

  • What will I have to eat and drink today?
  • What will I have to wear tomorrow? And the days ahead?
  • How can I survive at this present time? When I have nothing stored up?
  • What will I do for shelter and protection?
  • Who will take care of me?
  • What if?……

So… we need some instruction about how to do this.  How we can overcome worry.  And fear.  And anxiety.  And have assurance that God will take care of us.

The answer is in the Word and, in fact, is in these words spoken by Jesus Himself.

  1. Seek (look for) and Find the Kingdom of God.

But seek (zeteo: to look for with the purpose of finding) ye first the kingdom of God,

And Jesus says that this is the FIRST thing we should do.  It becomes our priority.  Our passion.  Our driving force.  Looking for the Kingdom.  Discovering where the Kingdom is.

In order to overcome anxiety…  (1) Look for the Kingdom.  (2) Find the Kingdom.  (3) Learn how the Kingdom works.  (4) And then, incorporate Kingdom Principles in everyday living.

And when we succeed in doing this, “All these things (basic living needs) shall be added unto you.” (Mat 6:33). 

When the Kingdom operates in you as God intends for it to, then the Will of God will be done for you.  When the Will of God is done for you…   you will be delivered from all worry, fear, anxiety and stress.

Now let’s find the Kingdom.  The Word tells us where it is.  Jesus tells us exactly where it is located.

  1. Discover WHERE IT IS

The Kingdom of God is in YOU.

Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within (entos: inside) you.  (that’s why it can’t be seen, or “observed” it is invisible because it inside every believer)

2 Cor 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.  

God has deposited a TREASURE inside of your human body.  That TREASURE is the Kingdom of God.

  • Your Body has become GOD’S HEADQUARTERS. (His Office, and He’s always “in”)
  • Your Mind becomes God’s Operating System.
  • Your Spirit becomes the Controller and Director of your flesh.

According to the Word, all of Heaven’s Resources are INSIDE the BELIEVER.  Everything God has and all things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Per 1:3) is already inside of the Believer in SEED FORM.  Heaven’s Storehouse is right inside of you… Remember “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”   Where is Christ?  In you.  Where is His Glory?  In you.   What does He possess and what has He given us?  (All things that pertain to life and godliness) They are in you.   They are in you NOW (regardless of outward circumstances or pre-existing problems.  The Answer to ALL THINGS is inside of you and me.

  1. Learn HOW IT WORKS

The Kingdom of God works by and through FAITH… (and Not by facts)

It is Supernatural.  It is Eternal.  It functions by Faith and not by Facts. Facts are natural and temporal.  Faith is Supernatural and Eternal.  And it is Faith that pleases the Father (without faith you cannot please God) because GIVING to you is the very thing that pleases God.  (“It’s your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom…”  Lk 12:32) and getting what He has Given you is received only through FAITH.  Jesus prayed, “Thy Kingdom Come thy Will be done in earth as it is in heaven…” (Matt 6:10).  Faith become the door into the resources of the Kingdom of God.

  1. The KINGDOM has KEYS

Mt 16:19   And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Keys are for binding and for loosing.  For shutting and for opening.  For stopping and for starting.  They are the scepter of authority for every Believer.

When Jesus conceptualized and prophesied the Church in Matthew 16: 18-19, He gave all the keys to it.  Search them out.  Find them.  Believe them.  Use them.

What you do with the Keys determines what HAPPENS to YOU on EARTH.

  1. The KINGDOM is DESIGNED to OPERATE on EARTH.

It is NOT reserved for us just for when we get to heaven. It is on earth that we need the THINGS OF GOD… the POWER of GOD… the AUTHORITY of GOD… the ABILITY of GOD… the GIFTS of the HOLY SPIRIT… the KINGDOM works through the Church (the Body of Christ).  We are GOD’S FAMILY and we are called and commissioned to live heaven’s life here on earth in the very midst of a “crooked and perverse” generation…

  1. WHATEVER you NEED can be FOUND in the KINGDOM

And the KINGDOM IS IN YOU.  We do not wait for blessings to “fall from heaven” on us.  “The Glory of the Lord is Risen upon you” (Isa 60) “THE KINGDOM of HEAVEN SUFFERETH VIOLENCE” (religion will pervert the truth and purity of it).  Religion and the organized church has done violence to the kingdom for years.  “AND THE VIOLENT (forceful, determined, strong) TAKE IT BY FORCE…” (Matt 11:12)

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Phil 4:19

Receive a Revelation of this Truth and you will be enabled to overcome every obstacle you will ever face and defeat every demon you ever encounter.
