Trouble, conflict and stressors of all types can limit your effectiveness to serve God. In the short term, these things can frazzle and limit you. Over time, chronic stress, worries, fear and conflict can impact negatively on the systems of your body and cause physical ailments and sickness and chronic diseases.
Your poor physical health can then limit your effectiveness to serve in God’s kingdom.
Here are a few scriptures that exhort us to lean into God during stressful and difficult times:
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear…” Psalm 46:1-2
“.. do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
“Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” ~ Jesus in Matthew 11:28
If you’re under stress, worried or troubled, lean into God in a greater way. Read the scriptures at the link below and meditate on His truths, His nature and His love and promises for you. Trust Him. God wants to be the Source of your comfort, hope, peace and strength!
Have a great day!
