Please pray for me

Hi all

I just wanted to ask for some prayer. I’m really trying to put God as my first love in my life. I’ve been consecrating myself to the Lord and giving up things which the Holy Spirit has been convicting me of like certain computer games etc. I’m also in the process of joining a lifegroup (weekly meeting) with my church to get ‘into’ fellowship which God has been convicting me of doing for a long time now because I haven’t been in proper fellowship yet. I’m 25 years old.

What I am struggling with is I am constantly accused in my mind, and I struggle also with insecurity and like a general fearful attitude towards things (fear of rejection, irrational slightly paranoic thoughts – its mainly when I’m around others but also alone). Like even posting this I am motivated by fear of what others will think. I wish I could just concentrate of what I’m doing without these kind of thoughts popping in. Like I can be motivated sometimes in my decisions by fear instead of love. I’ve battled with this for a long time, but God has been steadily changing me with awesome results. I’m just kinda sick of constantly having to fight, it seems I have to resist so much in the Spirit to get some sense of freedom and peace. What I struggle with is mostly with thoughts, like irrational thinking and fears and accusations /being unsure of who I am -certainty. God is awesome cause He is so faithful and holds me up with His right Hand. Basically I would just ask for some prayer over this issue and if possible maybe someone could seek God about this for me?

Thank you so much.

    I just need to memorize the verses because I haven’t read the bible chronilogically I just open it and read anywhere so I know this cuz i have read it but I have trouble saying it again.I’m working on it.Yes,that is what I was reffering to(the verses).

    I am sorry that I am replying a little late 🙂 . That was has also been a BIG problem until a few says ago.(the thoughts of doubt,and other sin)I am not sure what your problems are but I know that if you are constantly focusing on God than your thoughts, awkward as this sounds just stop coming to your head.I listen to Christian music,study the bible,constantly pray,talk to others about the bible,do good deeds for others, constantly think about my characteristics that I would like God to give me,I actually cry A LOT because it really hurts but it helps(like you I am tired of fighting),sometimes I just sit and think of things that I can do for other people. I do all this because I read in the Bible that doing what God wants will make satan leave you alone because he knows that once you have chosen God there is nothing he can do.Wow if I really think about it I havent had a negative thought in a few days.Concentrate on God and I know that it will help.Since you can only have one thought at a time make it about God. YOU CAN DO IT(when you read it say it with a strong accent you like so you can really feel it lol)

    • Thats awesome, thanks. Yes, I’ve been breaking free of the above issues over the last weeks, God’s been teaching me to meditate on His truths rather than the lies of Satan or the mind attacks. He’s been teaching me to ‘shift’ my thoughts when I get attacked with such things, as an example, when I find myself seeking approval of others, to suddenly start meditating on the fact that God loves me and accepts me, without trying to head on resist. Just focusing on God’s truths towards me instead of something that is contrary to Him and His will for us. Submitting to the Spirit for strength for that. It’s amazing how powerful effect that can have, in that your whole demeanor can change and suddenly will break free from that particular struggle/attack. So it’s kinda a similar thing you seem to be doing.

      Anyway, thought also these scriptures might help:

      ‘But he gives us more grace, That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud, but shows favor to the humble and oppressed” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.’ James 4:6-7

      ‘The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.’ 2 Corinthians 10: 4-5

      🙂

      Daniel
