“Let Me calm the storms of life this day, says the Lord. For though there are things that would add excess pressure, know that there is a place in My throne room where tensions melt away and you shall feel relaxed and stress-free.
He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still (Psalms 107:29).
Sometimes life is a roller coaster of things to either complete or solve. Without realizing it, we can live under excess stress as we try to manage everything. The devil wants God’s people to unknowingly get caught up in the stress cycle. In John 16:33, Jesus said there will be tribulation. However, God’s people can have peace in the midst of it because Jesus is more powerful than this world. In other words, even in a stressful environment we can experience a supernatural calm from the Lord. It requires us to turn off our busy agenda sometimes and discipline ourselves to focus our minds only on the Lord. Without that, we will never experience reprieve from all the things that put pressure on us. The world practices all sorts of relaxation techniques, some good and others not so good. Yet their missing element is the supernatural element of the Holy Spirit that only comes from times of focusing only upon Him. So make sure today and every day that you are taking time
with the Lord that isn’t all about asking for help or trying to figure everything out. Have times where you do nothing but sit back, take a deep breath, and reflect on how wonderful He is. God will surely meet you there, and all your tension will be forced to melt away!
Father, I place my thoughts on You today. I choose to set aside all my needs, circumstances, and the questions that add emotional stress to my mind. I thank You that You are calming every storm today. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
