It seems no matter how hard we try, we never have enough time to do everything we want and need to do. In all of history, we’ve never had more options about how to spend our time than we do today. With all the options comes a sort of paralysis. It’s too much. I recently heard a psychologist state anxiety results from too many options and too many images.
We get anxious because the things of this world overstimulate us with possibilities. Satan is clever, and we can’t ignore the brilliance of his strategy. By overwhelming our senses, we experience stress, which hinders our decision-making processes. We must have a strategy to combat the overwhelming options in our world. We must learn to prioritize Jesus in advance so we can defend against the onslaught of possibilities.
