Sometimes you just get overwhelmed. Everything seems to hit at once. The bills are due, you have no money, the kids need something, your boss is mad, and you have laundry piling up to the ceiling. You get frustrated, resentful and angry. You don’t know if you are going to scream or cry. All this sits just below your skin, screaming to be released. You have forgotten the Lord. What? You ask. Of course I haven’t! Um, yeah, you have. Does any of that sound like the Lord? The answer is no because:
“For God is not a God of disorder but of peace…” 1 Corinthians 14:33 (NIV)
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:4-8 (NIV)
Why are you upset? Fear. Fear that you won’t be able to handle it. Fear that you won’t have the money or the time or the ability to take care of your problems. But you have forgotten something. You are the Lord’s and He will take care of your problems. If you give your problems to Him and know that He will get you through them safely, then you have no reason to worry and fear.
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:1-5 (NIV)
