Philippians 4:13 (KJV) I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
We are constantly bombarded with pressure in our lives. Whether it’s pressure caused in our family, our jobs, our marriages, our children, our finances, and even health matters. The truth is life’s pressure can wear you down.
Many of us reading today’s message have learned how to deal with pressure. However, we have learned how to deal with pressure in unhealthy ways. One of the primary unhealthy ways to deal with life’s pressure is on your own. As people of God we have to learn how to handle pressure with our God on our side.
3 Reason why you must handle life’s pressures with the God, and not on your own:
G– Guidance, the Lord provides guidance to our lives.
O– Order, the Lord also provides order to our lives.
D– Direction, the Lord ultimately provides direction to our lives.
Please hear my Heart today, the Lord plays a critical role in your ability to function under pressure, without the Lord the pressures of life are more challenging and crippling. Emotions and your feelings if not under the guidance, order, and direction of the Lord can literally destroy your destiny, despite your talent, intelligence, and education. You my sisters and brothers can do all things through Christ who strengthens you today and for the rest of your life.
Point to ponder- As people of God, we include prayer in this process of overcoming life’s emotional pressure, asking God to partner with us as we seek to make the most of our God given gifting’s, unhindered by our feelings. As we overcome life’s pressure with God, our ability to succeed increases. Have a God day!
