the easiest exercise one can do is to get stressed out. I have been big time victim of this even after knowing that God is in control. But this time I chose not to entertain it and got relived. How? please go ahead reading…
When you are pulled in two directions at the same time, you get stressed, right? When God calls you to live one way and your body, mind, feelings and friends pull you another direction, you start to feel pressure. Jesus understood the stress first hand. He spent his last night on earth in agony, torn between his Father’s will and his own desires to escape the torment of the cross. -Mathew 26:36-46.
How to deal with stress?
Philippians 4:6-7 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Did you get that?
Pray…about EVERYTHING. And while you’re at it, be thankful for all that God has already done. One result of that kind of prayer life is a deep comfort in knowing that God is good… the kind of peace that can only come from acknowledging that He is in control. Stress CAN’T survive under THOSE conditions.
