“Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion,
for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.” Isaiah 12:6
There’s was a man who went to the doctor one day suffering from stress. The doctor gave him a regimen of exercises to do. But one thing he told him to do first was to go off by himself for a while and look at something big.
“Look at something big?” the man asked. “Yes,” replied the doctor. “The first step in dealing with stress is to get perspective on yourself.”
In Jesus’ life on earth, He often slipped away from the crowds to spend time with His Father and reflect upon His greatness. We, as believers in Christ, can learn from His example, taking time away by ourselves to gain perspective on our own lives and reflect upon the greatness of God.
That’s why Peter in his epistle under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit wrote the following verses:
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God
so that at the proper time He may exalt you,
casting all your anxieties on Him,
because He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:6-7
Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you;
He will never permit the righteous to be moved.
The key to overcoming stress is to walk humbly with God every day. Take time at the beginning of your day to reflect upon His infinite vastness. When you do, you’ll find that reflection will energize you and melt away whatever stresses you face!
SPEND TIME DAILY REFLECTING UPON GOD’S GREATNESS
AND YOU’LL BE ABLE TO OVERCOME WHATEVER STRESS YOU FACE.
