Stop, Look and Ask: Stop dwelling in the thoughts of trouble, start looking at Jesus “Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.” Ps 34:5 and ask the Lord for help “I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.” Ps 34:4.
Fear God: Let us stop fearing our situation and start fearing the Almighty “Fear the LORD, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing.” Ps 34:9.

Prayer: Lord my Father, I cry out to you, you have cleansed me by the blood of Jesus. I believe “The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.” Ps 34:17
