Lord, we thank You for giving us peace. Help us to look to You in times of stress and worry, knowing that You carry our burdens. We may have trouble in this world but You have overcome!

Who is that person you turn to when things in life go haywire? I think we all have one or more people who we immediately call or text or run home to when we desperately need a vent session. Talking out our problems with our loved ones isn’t a bad thing. In fact, admitting our weaknesses can be one of the best ways to bond with fellow human beings. However, no human can give us the true peace we ALL crave in times of trouble. But there is someone who CAN.

You guessed it – His name is Jesus. And while some might scoff at the idea of talking through your problems with someone you can’t see, if you claim to be a Christian, you have to start ACTING upon the Biblical truths you claim to believe when trouble arises.

Easier said than done – I know. I definitely don’t always get this right. It is a constant struggle. But as I’ve grappled with the practice of making God my go-to when I’m overwhelmed by stress and worry, I have found five Biblical truths that have helped bring God to the forefront of my mind in order to resist the temptation to immediately complain about my circumstances to my friends and family.

1. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)

Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, the ultimate price is paid and we can call on Him for help in any and EVERY situation.

2. “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18)

God DOES see us as we struggle; He is ready and willing to come close to us as we experience pain, but it’s up to US to humble ourselves and offer our situation to Him.

3. “‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.’” (Isaiah 55:8-9)

God has unique, unfathomable plans for each of us. When we offer our lives to Him and truly give Him control over our circumstances, He will amaze us. That is not to say that we’ll never face difficulties – we inevitably will in this fallen world. But is DOES mean that God can use those difficulties for His ultimate glory. He can use the pain to catalyze our purpose.

4. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)

The peace of God is like nothing else. It is what each of us crave – that hole we feel when we aren’t in union with God. When we pause to spend time with Him, His presence truly does provide inexplicable peace.

5. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;” (Jeremiah 1:5)

God created us. He knows every hair on our heads, every thought in our minds, every wrong decision we’ve made, yet He STILL loves us unconditionally. He loves us more than any human being could ever begin to love us. He knows us better than any person ever could. Therefore, He knows what each of us individually needs. He knows how each of us needs to be comforted. He knows how and where in our lives each of us need to learn and grow.

Wouldn’t it make sense, then, that Jesus should be our go-to? He’s here to love and comfort us. He knows we are weak. Why do you think he died for us? We can’t come to salvation or peace or joy WITHOUT HIM! The next time you’re faced with uncertainty or stress, put the phone DOWN and lift your head UP to Him.

  1. Father, I pray that we have begun to understand You more for who You are and what You have done for us in the past, present and the age to come. Praise the Lord!

    Father, we invite Your presence acknowledging You as Creator of All. May all believers continue to Acknowledge in “Remembrance Daily” how He (Jesus) instructed His disciples in the way the sacrifice of His body and blood should be remembered in the drinking of wine and eating of bread.

    “Remember What Jesus Did on the Cross.” And we must do this often as well. We are to remember Him as we partake of the Holy Communion. Jesus wanted us conscious of how His body was broken for our wholeness, and His blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins. “Whenever we partake Holy Communion we proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes” (1 Corinthians 11:26).

    Father, we ask for insight from the Holy Spirit that will increase, our thirsty hearts and will encounter you, “God”, deeply. How much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him? (Luke 11:13).

    Call upon the name of the Lord and you shall be saved! Praise Him as your Lord and Savior. Praise God for who He is and what He has done as Creator of All. Amen.

  2. Over the years I have learned there is no one like Him to hear my pain, comfort and redirect my thinking and ultimately to give praise and thanksgiving to. He is my run to person and I am humbled and thankful for His love and grace. Blessed be His holy Name.

  3. When I spend consistent time with Jesus, something supernatural happens in my everyday life. My thoughts automatically turn to Him and His ways, the Kingdom that He gave to us. Thank you Jesus how faithful You are to Your beloveds, us.
