Many people today feel overwhelmed by what is going on around them. I talked to a lady that told me that so much is going on in her life, that sometimes she feels dizzy! I think that all of us can relate to that sentiment. The problem for people that don’t know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour have no recourse when their lives are turned upside down! Isn’t it wonderful that God’s children have a recourse – they can turn to God when they’re overwhelmed. The Lord wants His children to come to them for everything in their lives. Look at Matthew 11:28 (NKJV)
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Do you want to know what I do? Whenever I start to feel even a little bit uneasy or stressed about something, I have conditioned myself to give the problem to the Lord. God doesn’t want to help us with only our big problems in life. No, He want to help us with every problem or situation that we have. Only when we can trust God with all of our problems will we be truly at rest. And just in case you say that this is sticking your head in the sand to get away from your problems, it isn’t. God is telling us to go to Him in any situation.
Child of God, what is your stress level today? Have you tried everything humanly possible to fix the situation? Prayer shouldn’t be your last resort – it should be your first thought when something happens that pushes your stress button! If you’re stressed, don’t stick you head in the sand hoping that the problem will go away. Go to your Heavenly Father, who loves you and wants to help you. He won’t mind or think less of you. He’ll be happy that you’re starting to trust in Him and not in yourself or others.
