3 Things To Know When You Are Stressed Out | Short Sermon Series
“Can someone tell me what to do? When all I can feel is pressure pushing me down”
If that’s you, here are 3 things you need to know:
With God, it’s not weak to be weak.
In fact, the weaker you are, the stronger you are! Doesn’t make sense? Too good to be true? God’s word in 2 Corinthians 12:9 tells us just that. When we’ve tried our best and there’s no good outcome, God still works miracles. In fact, God works miracles the most effectively in our weaknesses! All we need to do is say “God, help. I can’t do ___” and He will respond, “Do not be afraid when you see weaknesses, for they are the best places for Me to show My strength.”
You can find rest in the midst of the struggle
We find rest when we come to Him - but how do we “come” to Him? We’ve never even seen Him physically! Coming to Jesus is as simple as letting His words take root in your heart. “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” As we let these words settle in our hearts, we come to a place of rest and God starts working on our behalf.
Jesus’ very own peace is yours
Jesus loves you so much that He has given you His peace. Not a peace you get on a vacation or a breezy morning, but an aggressive peace for every day just as Jesus had. To add on, the original meaning of peace refers to: wellness, wholeness, completeness and peace of heart and mind!
So the next time you’re stressed out, live it out knowing that Jesus’ eace is with you and He will show you REAL REST when He works His miracles in your weakness!
