I once attended a health conference on stress. The doctor who was leading the conference made a statement that continues to echo in my head. She gave the definition for stress as "a response the body does when we believe that we lack the resources needed for the situation".
Wow, from a Christian perspective, how can we ever believe that we do not have the resources needed when we have Jesus? We have every resource we need in Jesus for all situations. We need nothing else. So, why do we as a follower of Jesus ever stress out?
How is your stress level? Do you feel you have all the resources you need for every situation having Jesus? If so, then why do you stress? You can learn to trust what you have in Jesus or you can continue to let stress reek havoc in your life! What is it going to be?
Just think—you don’t need a thing, you’ve got it all! All God’s gifts are right in front of you as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale. And not only that, but God himself is right alongside to keep you steady and on track until things are all wrapped up by Jesus.
