We live in a very stressful world. We try to make ends meet in a very stressful life today. Stress is all around us, is it not? So, Stress is nothing new. In the bible we read about Noah, when he was building the ark with no rain in sight. Martha had stress when she was preparing a meal for our Lord. So, what is "Stress" - "Stress is the gap between the demands placed on us and the strength we have in meeting those demands".
It is not a sin to be stressed, nor a sin to be weary. It is a sin, though, not to seek a lessening of that stress which tears down the temple of the Holy Spirit, your body. Where is your answer? In waiting upon the Lord — waiting in the midst of demands. When you learn to wait on Him, God steps in to bridge the stress gap with His mighty strength.
Why not ask God to equip you to be a stress-buster today. Perhaps it will be your boss or your spouse that is “stressed out.” Rejoice in the opportunity you have to share God’s love.
