As I read my morning Bible devotion in my You Version Bible today it spoke to me so vividly. The opening scripture was John 14:27 (NIV) Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. It talked about the greatest block to peace in the modern day is stress, STRESS. This is my life. We have so much stimuli that are stressful in our lives - text messages, being in constant contact or connected to people we barely know, meeting that humanly impossible deadline, the list goes on. Not all stress comes from negative places.
Some stressors are from being so competent that you’re always picked to be the leader for work projects. Stress can stem from anything that: is annoying, exiting, scary, frustrating and challenging. I’m sure you’ve heard that the key to mitigating stress in your life is in how you respond to the stressor. That is much easier said than done. During difficult or challenging times whether they come from a darker place or a positive place and stress is taking over, you need supernatural peace to grow through this place. He will keep you in perfect peace when our minds are stayed on Him. That is the peace you can only get from God. This supernatural peace. Frequently we chose to focus on the size of our problems
instead of the size of our God. It’s a process, its ok to give it time. Try to see the good and be grateful.
We are not fully free of what that which stresses us, we do have God’s peace which passes all understanding. Let's tap in to that. I would love to read your thoughts on this. Please leave a comment and share.
