Everyone get’s overwhelmed at times. During this busy time of year, it can be very tempting to give into the feelings of lack of control, stress, anxiety, or even depression. But God’s desire for us is for us to let him take care of us!
The Bible tells us that we shouldn’t give into these feelings. God has provided everything to take care of our needs and gave his word to show us what to do during stressful times.
Remember That God Is In Control
God has a plan for plan for your life that is good and is meant to prosper (Jeremiah 29:11). He loves you more than you could ever imagine and has already won all of our battles (Deuteronomy 20:4, Isaiah 42:13, John 3:16).
Trust God, he WILL take care of your every need. You don’t have to be in control, LET God take care of everything for you!
Equip Yourself With What God Has Already Given You
God knows our needs even before we know them! He has given us the strength, peace, and courage that we need to overcome any situation (2 Timothy 1:7, Joshua 1:9, Isaiah 41:10). He is our peace! He’s already provided the spiritual and physical resources that we need (1 Peter 4:10-11, Philippians 4:19, Luke 12:24, Matthew 7:11), all we have to do is accept them and use them!
Get in the word and discover what God has given you! You have everything you need to get you through your situation, and God is right there with you every step of the way!
Take Time To Rest
The Bible tells us that we don’t need to worry. God has promised us to take care of our every need. All we need to do is to rest in his promises (Matthew 11:28). Take time to rest you physical body. Even God took time to rest (Genesis 2:2), why wouldn’t we need to?
The more you allow yourself to rest in God’s promises, the more he is able to transform your life.
Take Time To Be With God
God is your father, and he desires to have a relationship with you (Psalm 68:5, Matthew 6:6)! Go for a hike, go fishing, or anything else that you enjoy. God cares about what you care about! Spend time with him! Get to know who your father us (Romans 10:17).
The more you know who your father is, the more you will understand that you don’t have anything to worry about. There is no need to be overwhelmed.
Trust in God! He will never fail you!
