The F.O.M.O effect
When I find myself in "F.O.M.O" mode God reminds me that my anxious heart is not from Him, that He can speak and move at my home just like He can at a conference on the West coast because He is everywhere at ALL times. He reminds me that one of the words He gave me for the year was rest. Not just physical rest but resting in the assurance that I cannot miss anything from Him when I am in tune with what He is asking. He will send the mate when I rest, He will have the right people invite me to things that I'll gladly attend when I rest, He will allow me to make sound and healthy decisions regarding my food because my desire will be to please Him with my temple as well as my gifts. There is no need my friend for us to work ourselves into a lather about all the decisions we have to make and the millions of possibilities and what if's. We only need to rely on the words penned in the book of Isiah 30:21 NLT (New Living Translation) "Your own ears will hear Him. Right behind you, a voice will say, "This is the way you should go," whether to the right or to the left". When we trust that EVERYTHING that concerns us God is concerned about we won't think something is too small or insignificant to ask Him about.
Oh Lord, thank You for being concerned about me and the matters of my heart. Forgive me for causing unnecessary worry upon myself thinking that I am somehow going to miss You and Your promises. I can confidently say and rest in knowing that when I am CONSTANTLY fellowshipping and growing my relationship withYou I will know Your voice and will not mistake it for another. I desire to walk in the truth that You have given me a sound mind and that my thoughts are aligned in Your truths. Please make me sensitive to when I am falling into old patterns that are contrary to my new mindset shift. I am a sound and solid decion maker who makes decisions without fear of retribution, and a person who filters all of their decisions through Christ Jesus who gives me strength. Amen
