Five Steps to Kick Anxiety Out - Quiet the Mind

Five Stesps to Kick Anxiety Out

Big emotions are real, and it’s OK to have them.


It’s not that emotions are more significant than God’s truth (they aren’t an excuse to sin), but they are normal and need to be processed, especially if you feel overwhelmed.


But have you ever been so emotionally upset and then anxious that you can’t process ANYTHING?!


It’s so essential first to find calm acknowledge our feelings, and hear the truth.


The great news is that Christ can help us manage our feelings in all three ways: 

A black heart with lines

Our Identity in Christ


Our Identity

We as Christians really knew who we really are in Christ, the devil and his cohorts would shake in fear. That is why the battle is between our ears or through other people to define us opposite of God’s truth. The devil does not want us to know the truth.

If Christians really knew who they were and were secure, we would not see church splits, power struggles, etc. Because we are all very special to the Lord. No one is more important than others.

Do you feel like you know who you are in Christ?

Are there things in the past that keep you from really knowing who you are?

Do you perform or work to get God’s love?

Why is that?

Do you think we could all relate as a body of Christ if we knew the common interest and Goals of the Lord for the Church?

The Lord said some to be prophets, teachers, preachers, apostles, and evanglists. Ephesians 4 – to build up the body until the body reaches maturity and unity. The fivefold ministry is to be speaking to the body, bringing them together and causing us unified and to get out of diverse and get on meat and steak, not milk – Hebrews 5:13-14. Become mature and not babies anymore.

The body of Christ is to become like him. So, how does this happen?

How are we going to know the thoughts of God when we are in a world that is broken?

We have that answer through the Holy Spirit. Paul said 1 Corinthians 2:10-16

But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

We don’t know the thoughts of God, but the spirit does.

We are released into our future, but it is not based on our emotions.

Reading your bible, praying but it might not be enough. It must be an expectancy from heaven that is supernatural.

You do your part and let God do the rest and then honor him and invite him into every situation.

Even in your bible reading, praying, and fasting is not going to be enough unless God supernaturally helps you in the days ahead.

God must take you into his realm and you must operate there on a daily basis. We must be ignited. When we truly learn how to enter into the realm of God, then we can know who we are.

The bible says we are royal priests 1 Peter 2:9 – what does that mean?

We are not part of this world. We live in it but our identity is in him for the purpose of pulling down the enemies camp. We are priests in the royal kingdom – adopted - Ephesians 1:5 - Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

Colossians 3:1–4

bIf then you have been raised with Christ, seek cthe things that are above, where Christ is, dseated at the right hand of God. eSet your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For fyou have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ gwho is your1 life happears, then you also will appear with him iin glory.


Get a spiritual mindset and go about the father’s business. Praying for others taking care of it in the spiritual realm. God must take us to the spiritual realm – go above and beyond – set up above the rulers and authority down here. Stop giving power to the enemy. This is identity – I am not Jesus Christ – but we are to be like him, we are in his image. We are made in his likeness.

Ephesians 5: Be imitators of God. Dearly loved children, not as adults. Allow the holy spirit to uncomplicated us more simply toward the things of God, as a child, be more like Christ by being an imatators of God.

Let’s look at the fruit of the spirit – Character of God after Jesus – God sees us through the blood of Jesus.

·         Love…

·         Joy…

·         Peace…

·         Patience…

·         Kindness…

·         Goodness…

·         Faithfulness…

·         Gentleness…

·         Self-Control…

·         So Paul, in 1 Corinthians 13 is describing what God is like…

·         God is patient…
God is kind…
God does not envy…
God does not boast…
God is not proud… if anyone in the universe has a legitimate reason to be proud, it would be God)
God does not dishonor others…

·         God is not self-seeking…He is God
God is not easily angered…

·         God is not easily angered…
God keeps no record of wrongs… (this is one of the biblical clauses that messes with our theology. How would your view of God change if you realized he wasn’t keeping track of your “wrongs”?)
God does not delight in evil… (it grieves him!)
But rejoices with the truth…
God always protects… (this makes me feel safer) – Ps. 91 – Job 10 – he is our hedge of protection.
God always trusts… (think of the work he has entrusted to us!)
God always hopes… (he hasn’t given up on any of us, and never will!)
God always perseveres… (talk about staying power)
God’s love never fails… (Period. His love ultimately triumphs. Is that a comforting thought?)


These are the characteristics we need to be more like Christ. The entire bible (old and new) are based on love God – heart, soul and mind, others as ourselves. Do we always love god with our minds?

How do we act like God?

This entered in our hearts through the spirit of the Lord. But we do wrestle with our identity in the flesh instead of the spirit. The fleshly thoughts is what gets us in trouble with ourselves. We step out of God’s identity in us into the flesh that is the opposite side of God. How through satan throwing fiery darts.

How you identity in this life will determine how far you go in this life. Not by heros on earth but by who is seating in heaven – aim higher. Aim towards the throne.

We must be imitators of God – like a child who wants to imitate their father.

Jesus identitfied to his father and talked about his father. Jesus said, I don’t speak not unless the father spoke to me first. Everything Jesus did was the spirit of God working through Him. We should have the spirit of the Lord Jesus working through us.

When we identify with that relationship god has made us his children, the world can change because we are changed. Don’t allow this world to choke you out. Especially what is happening right now.

WE are seated in high places. That means above the enemy. We can trample scropians and snakes. God will not allow us to be tempted more than we can handle. So rejoice.

It is finishing your race with joy of the Lord. Joy is not determined by circumstances. Joy comes from within. Joy is the fruit of the holy spirit that is within you – spiritual joy.

The Lord loves you and wants all of us to be transformed to the next level.

John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Authority – to become sons of God. God sends you and commissions you and is behind you. Those who received him power and authority to become sons of God. You don’t have to be physically strong.

You can carry the power and authority – sent us into this world. Everywhere we go foot treads – we trample on scorpions and snakes. That is our identity. We are sons of God – with authority and power through Christ.

The enemy fears you when you are sent. You are commissioned. You carry weight in the spirit. The glory of the Lord.

We identity that God speaks. Things start breaking apart. When God stepped on mount Sinai, the rocks split. Things obey and get out of the way.

You can change history from your house because of authority when you pray. You identify with Jesus Christ, he shows up. God has called you to be a voice. To break the powers of the air. Evil and unrighteousness. Speak it knowing the father has sent you and speak it to the air – declare.

God knew every person and knew their purpose and plan. So, we accept the Word of God for our lives. Not the lies of the enemy (the devil) that lies against our identity in Christ. Not the lies that maybe your parents have said, or ex-husbands that said evil about you. Or what the enemy whispered in your head and you believed it. We do not fight flesh and blood. You can believe God for him to come and visit you.

We have authority and power to cast out demons, lay hands of the sick and the dead raised not on our merit but through our identity and purpose in Him.

John 15:15 we are a friend of God. We are no longer slave or servant but a friend of God. God shares intimately for what he has for his kingdom to include you into his plan. You must be filled with the spirit of the Lord to come into the authority and power.

Phil 1:6 “he does a good work in me – will bring it into completion. You and me. What he started in your, he will finish it. He’s already seen it.

This life is not about fulfilling goals. This life is about knowing him. If you know him, you have everything. Then, his favor causes you to experience things in this life that are a gift. If you prosper, God’s favor smiling upon you. It is unmerited.

You cannot do anything for God to love you more by trying because it is a gift - nor to get him to love you less – it is impossible, even when you sin. Nothing separates us from the Love of Christ.

You get his attention. How do you get his attention?

When you seek him diligently, he is a rewarder to those who seek him diligently. Hebrews 11. Enoch walked with God. God was so pleased with him and took him to heaven.

In God’s eyes, we are made in the image of God and through the blood we are perfect. Completely forgiven. There is nothing that needs improvement.

Working out our salvation with fear and trembling. This is working with the Holy Spirit to help us. He always causes me to triumph over him.

WE are righteous and our steps are ordered. God has determined because you have come to him needing help. The next step is the supernatural. Faith is the title deed for what you cannot see – what you are believing in. Faith is the substance not seen in Hebrews 11:1.

You can change a country through prayer. You can change the course of your life and your neighbors’ life and change your country. We need to get rid of – party systems, country, etc. Jesus just preached to his people. We have been ordained to carry out his ministry.

Once you realize who you are, you will know what you are supposed to do. You must know who you are and that you are a child. You start to walk into authority. Then the mission is easier. You are the head, not the tail, you are above and not underneath.

You are implemented at salvation into the kingdom – identifying with him. We don’t work for God. When we preach the gospel, I identify with the father because we love him and know he loves us. Proclaiming the gospel is not work but a lifestyle. He has given you authority to trample the enemy to sow a seed to others. Helping others.

In the world standards, We are taught you must qualify – train, education, constant advancement, and stress. We are never good enough to qualify. God’s way is who you are. The value of people was determined when you were born. It is not your job. But you are made in his image. He determined the good works you would do. He will talk to you on His level. Jesus came down to our level to do it right. He died for us. He has already come to your level, would you come up to my level and sit with me in the heavenly realm? Be raised with him in power – supernaturally.

Get out of the victim mentality or the trying mode. Isaiah 55 he sits on his throne and he speaks – word goes forth he waits for it to come back – not void. It accomplishes that he attended – he speaks his word. Hope is sown in your heart – so that you can participate in divine nature – we are partakers of divine nature. Because you are his child.

Paul said where the spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. Your freedom is in Christ when you grasp and believe His word in who you are. Not others have said to you. You belong to Christ not those who speak evil. They don’t define you. God does through His divine nature and Word of God.

If you would catch the vision for the kingdom of God, the transformation. The war Satan has against you does not mean you’ve done anything wrong. The victory is in Christ.

Jesus took your pasts, and he has forgotten it so you need to keep it under the blood because Jesus already cleansed you with the blood of the lamb. Don’t allow the enemy to steal your identity. In John 10:10 he came to kill, steal and destroy. Destroy what? Get you to believe you are not forgiven, loved, or accepted.

You have the divine nature, the mission, you have the revelations of who you are and who he is. You will have warfare but you will win.

You have a choice.

Let’s pray.



God help vs. self help programs


Self help vs. God’s Way


Self-help promotion programs are self-reliance. Can we learn anything from the self-help movement? Self-help assumes that you can indeed do something to help yourself. How has that worked for you? Isn’t it you that got yourself in a mess? Self-help gives me my own small, fleeting glory. Self-help offers a temporal good (at best). 


The Christian, awake to the reality that he has no good apart from his God (Psalm 16:2), speaks repeatedly, “Not to me, O God, not to me, but to your name give glory” (Psalm 115:1). Christ is his boast. God-help offers us deep, everlasting joy, secure in his unfading glory. We are changed forever through His power of the Holy Spirit and revelation.

He takes our shame, fears, and doubts when we depend on Him for everything. Self-help is a dead end.

Got Guilt? Is Guilt Triggering Anxiety?
