The very fact that God revealed himself as Jehovah-shalom indicates that his plan is to be with one in trouble instead of insulating one from trouble.  The following actions based on scriptures will arm one for dealing with “panic attacks.”

  1. Pray for Godly advisors, doctors, friends. Ps. 118:6, 7 “The Lord is on my side: I will not fear . . .The Lord taketh my part with them that help me.”
  2. Take refuge in Jesus’ name. Ps. 18:10  “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.”
  3. Be assured that good will come from this. Ps. 91:15  “He will call upon me, and I will answer him.  I will be with him in trouble.  I will deliver him and honor him.”
  4. Don’t be a “slave to fear.” Romans 8:15  “For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave to fear, but you received the Spirit on sonship.  And by him we cry “Abba, Father.” (Abba is a similar word to daddy.)
  5. Remind yourself that God is present and he is “big enough.” Ps. 46:1, 2  “God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.  Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.”
  6. Pray for peace and count your blessings.  Col. 3:15  “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts . . . and be thankful. . .”
  7. Pray for sleep and rest. Ps. 127:2  “It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.”
  8. Treat yourself with music therapy.Ps.  32:7  “You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”
  9. Read the Bible. Ps. 119:105  “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”  Ps. 107:20 “He sent his word and healed them.”  

One will never know Jehovah-Shalom except as he is revealed in a time of trouble.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
