Most of us know what it feels like to be alone in the dark. If you ever had to take the trash out late at night or found yourself stranded alongside the road at night, then you understand—your mind can create hidden shadows or images. Before you know it, the hair on the back of your neck begins to rise.
There are struggles in life that can become emotional strongholds – things that hold you hostage and keep you from wholeheartedly serving and trusting God and experiencing the abundant life He has promised. One of the most damaging strongholds is worry. It is available for every age and is an obstacle to moving forward. When it is a stronghold in your life, it is a way of life.
God says that if you will seek His kingdom first and His righteous standards first then He will willingly grant you all of the things that often make themselves the focus of your worry.
