Hello StillStanding (((hugs)))
God bless you this day.
Amen! Amen!! Amen!!!
I agree, Amen!!!
For decades, I was tormented by those type of thoughts -- convinced that the reason for those thoughts was so I could intervene and prevent the tragedy before it unfolded. Feeling that I was now responsible for all that stuff was overwhelming, exhausting and it stole my life, and my desire to live. I suppose that is how some diviners get started...seers, etc. We have to remember, there is a huge spiritual realm all around us...unseen, by most, but heard by many, and it can be absolutely overwhelming.
About 7 years ago, I was sitting in my kitchen and suddenly I started worrying, once again, about my daughter. I frantically started praying for her. And The Lord spoke to me "Stop, praying for her out of fear!!! Don't you know that I love her more than you do?" And along with that message, a power came over me so strong, I felt as if I was gasping for my next breath, but yet, it was AMAZING!!! It probably only lasted a few seconds, but it was so powerful, and it kind of scared me. But, quickly, I knew...I had just been allowed to feel a small dose of the power of His Love for her (my daughter). It was the most amazing experience, and one I will never forget. From that day forward, anytime a negative and worrying thought would enter into my mind about her, I would (and still do) remember that experience with my Lord!!! And the worry melts away, instantly, as I praise His name!!!
The worrying and crippling thoughts have lessened over the years, but some raise their ugly head on occasion, and crop up once in a while. But, the moment I realize I'm doing that thang...zoning, I tell the thought to leave in the name of Jesus, and it does. Praise God!!!
Fear and worry are the opposite of faith!!!
God has gifted His children with discernment, and as He develops that within us, by the indwelling and working of The Holy Spirit, He will use that blessed discernment to lead us and also to warn us. But, there is a huge difference between how He works and how evil works. Getting to know Him, our Lord and Saviour, and His Word is key. \o/ \o/ \o/
StandingStill, I'm so happy for you, that you now know the Truth in this matter. God is so very Good!!!
God bless and keep you.
