Think about a time when you were doing something that you knew to be wrong. Do you remember the paranoia, the overwhelming dread felt during that time? Can you recall how every little creak was magnified, every shadow a spy, and the feeling that at every window an unseen eye may be watching! When looking at something you should not, even a familiar and friendly voice alarms. You find yourself running from shadows and startled by every little noise.
“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1)
On the other hand, when you are doing the right things you enjoy an inherent peacefulness. There is no feeling of dread or anxiety over someone seeing. In fact, you generally experience a sense of security even if you do not recognize it and are emboldened and often excited when someone does notice.
The question then is this: "What is making you uneasy or paranoid?" Is there something you are involved in that is keeping you on edge? Wouldn’t it be nice to simply relax & rest for a while? It may not be the first answer that comes to mind but doing the right thing may just heal that anxiety.
