God’s remedy for stress

God’s remedy for stress

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”   1Pe 5:7 NIV

Are you feeling stressed? Is your mind besieged with worries? If so, God wants to relieve your stress. Read the following Scriptures slowly and prayerfully: “I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed” (Ps 57:1 NIV). “You have been a refuge for the poor…for the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm” (Isa 25:4 NIV). “I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go…I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you” (Ge 28:15 NIV). “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms” (Dt 33:27 NIV). “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 righteous right hand” (Isa 41:10 NIV). “Even to your old age…I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you” (Isa 46:4 NIV). So here’s God’s prescription for stress relief: (1) Believe God truly “cares for you.” (2) Make a conscious decision to “cast all your anxiety on him.” If you’re on overload, ask God for wisdom to change your schedule. When the problem you’re facing is too big for you to handle, give it to Him—and don’t take it back. Let Him think His thoughts through you, and allow His peace, power, and patience to take charge of your mind. Practice doing this at the beginning of each day, and as often as you need to throughout the day. It’s God’s remedy for stress!
