In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf. - John 16:26

Where Am I Going to Hide?

Robert L. Segress

“The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; He is their stronghold in time of trouble. The Lord helps and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in Him” (Ps. 37:39-40).

One case stands out in my memory from the years when I practiced as a medical professional:

A woman came in for anxiety therapy due to her fear of rabbits. She was so afraid of rabbits that so much as a picture of a bunny would make her cringe against a wall.

However, after gradual desensitizing, she was able to hold a baby bunny in her arms. Part of her success story involved learning to put her terror in the Lord’s hands. The prescription in Philippines 4:6-7 became a friend to her. She learned to stop being anxious by following the very specific prescription given in these verses. “Do not be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
