Hello, People of Purpose!
◊Today’s episode we discuss addiction to selfishness and the roots of a scarcity mindset. More often than not, we can easily spot the mistakes of others but not reflect on our own.
Satan is the king of liars; his purpose is to kill, steal, and destroy. He will creep into our emotions making us anxious, worried, or doubtful. We doubt God hears our prayers so, we “figure out” a way to get it done. We worry over appearances and react impulsively. We are anxious and fear missing a “blessing”. When we are overly emotional it is counterproductive to what God wants for us. There are times when we are to be still, trust, and believe His perfect timing is best for us. God is the Creator of all creation! Who better to handle the details of our daily lives?
Living the Worst-Case Scenario, the Podcast is designed to move us into reflection. The process is painful as I have had a difficult time owning my failures. We usually don’t want to admit I have addictive behaviors. I have learned that when communication ends, that is where Anger picks up and inserts wild conspiracy theories and distorts the truth.
As you listen to Living the Worst-Case Scenario, I pray you will journal and keep your Bible close. As you react, think about what you are feeling and use the Bible concordance to look up that specific emotion. What does the Bible say about how you’re responding?
Scriptures in this episode:
Proverbs 12:25; Matthew 6:27; Numbers 14:4; Exodus 16:3; Philippians 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5-11; Matthew 10:19
- I need several vehicles in case one isn’t working to do what I need to do.
- I need a wardrobe and shoes for every season in my closet at all times.
- I must have multiple cell phones because my life is complicated.
- If my smartphone rings ding pings or makes a sound, I must check it right away.
- I need a variety of girlfriends or boyfriends because no one can handle all of me.
- I view worst-case scenarios as emergency medical needs, such as getting bit by a poisonous snake or hypothermia.
- I am continually taking inventory of my belongings.
- I believe I can handle anything that comes at me because I have all my resources locked down, and I don’t need anybody.
