When I see things in myself that could use some help, my own insecurities perhaps; when those things pop up out of nowhere and I wonder where they came from, I am reminded I don’t have to deal with these things alone. I don’t have to fix myself.
I have a Father in heaven who so wants to help me with these things.
The only thing I must do is take this to Jesus, confess it to Him (1 John 1:9), and ask Him to help me with this. I can lift this thing I would like changed in my life up to him, putting it into His hands, asking Him to change me.
I can surrender myself to the Lord and ask Him to do a work in my life. Every time I find myself struggling with this, I can give it to Him again, asking Him for help again. And He will help.
One of the things He’s helped me with is fear. I used to be so afraid I would lie awake at night, my heart pounding at the slightest noise. I would be afraid of the dark, afraid to sleep. I asked him continually to deliver me from these fears.
And you know what? He did. Not instantly, but over a period of time. I don’t mind the dark anymore. My heart doesn’t pound at night with fear and terror, and I am able to rest.
Sometimes fear tries to come in different ways. I tell God about it, and thank him for delivering me, because he delivers me from all my fears (Psalm 34:4).
He is a great and wonderful God. When we come to him sincerely, honestly wanting to change and get better, he does not condemn us, but comes close and helps us along the way. We are never ever alone.
I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears (Psalm 34:4 KJV).
