Breaking Free from Frenzy

We speak peace to the storm.

Last month, I was asked to talk about what was going on in the atmosphere. It really was a crazy time.

I remember one morning being on a Zoom call with my bookkeeper, getting texts from my sister about our dad — who was in the hospital — and then getting calls from my assistant, who needed help with payroll.

My bookkeeper needed to access our systems, but the verification codes were going to Stephen! I had five things going on at once, and I felt myself descending into a frantic mode. 

When I got off the phone, I was almost in tears.

That night, Stephen asked, “Are you okay? You seem shaken.” Right then, I realized I’d been partnering with a spirit of frenzy. It had been in the atmosphere, and I’d fallen for it hook, line, and sinker.

Symptoms of frenzy

From what I’ve discerned, here are the signs I recognize about frenzy:

1) You’ll know you’re experiencing frenzy by how it affects your body and mind.

2) Your brain shuts down.

3) What normally seems easy to accomplish feels impossible.

4) It creates a fight or flight scenario in your mind.

5) Your body might even physically shake.

At the core of these attacks is stress. You feel like throwing in the towel and giving up. 

If you recognize any of these symptoms, declare, “I see you, frenzy. I do not partner with you. I send you back in Jesus’ Name.”

Next, speak to your body. Say, “Body, mind, and spirit, I release peace to you. You don’t have to take on this atmosphere. You don’t have to take on the chaos that’s going on.” 

Yes, you might have a lot happening in your life, but that doesn’t mean you have to come under its influence. Think about Jesus, Who slept during the storm. That’s a power we have access to.

I speak peace to your soul, spirit, and mind and body. I declare peace into the storms surrounding you. I Thank You, Lord, that You’re not in a hurry. I ask that everything You have for us will arrive in Your perfect timing. Thank You that we don’t have to bow to the tyranny of the urgent. I pray this all, in Jesus’ Name, amen.
