Sometimes in life, we have things happen to us that can cause us to become overwhelmed, or maybe stressed out or have some serious anxiety.
See, the devil knows that if he can get you overwhelmed and if he can get you stressed out or anxious, he can stop you from fulfilling your purpose in life.
My Pastor often says, “Somebody’s future won’t begin until you walk into it.” (Jim Frease)
“Seeing that you are here right now on earth at this time is proof that God saw a problem that only you could solve!” (Jim Frease)
Take a second to let that sink in...
There is a purpose that you are here on this earth!
Now, think about the people around you. How many of them are feeling this way: overwhelmed, stressed out, anxious? It’s almost like this is the new pandemic.
It seems like so many people are either running away from their problems, giving up, complaining, or blaming everyone around them for what’s going on. It seems like so many people these days are in division with one another.
Daniel 7:25 says, “And Satan shall speak words against the Most High God and shall wear out the saints.”
That verse, when it says, "saints," if you have given your heart to Jesus, it's talking about you. Satan is the one that I’s behind the attempt to wear you out…or overwhelm you, or cause you stress and anxiety.
So what can we do about it?
How do we overcome this overwhelm, this stress, this anxiety?
Can we even overcome it?
The answer is…yes, you can!
Micah 7:7-8. These verses are key for overcoming the overwhelm.
“But as for me, I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me. Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall, I will arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord WILL be a light to me.”
