Too Blessed To Be Stressed

‘So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.’ (Isaiah 41:10)

Beloved. Blessed child of God.

What are you stressed about today?

God’s Word says that whatever it may be, you need not be dismayed. For He is with you.

He is your God. The almighty one who will strengthen you, help you, and uphold you.

You’ve blessed. Redeemed from the curse of stress and strife.

No longer do you need to earn your keep by the sweat of your brow.

His blessings ever surround you. They’re not earned by your self-efforts, but by His grace and the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Remember His blessings today. Receive His love. Claim His promises.

For you are too blessed to be stressed.

Let it be so.

Be Greatly Blessed!

 
Prayer:

Father, thank you for your multitude of blessings.

I’m humbled and amazed by your grace.

Thank you for reminding me of your faithfulness as I follow your lead.

Help me to step out knowing that you are there to bring blessing and increase.

Help me to keep my focus on your promises, and not on my needs.

For you are my provider, my source, my king.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

AMEN!

Additional Thoughts:

‘Now the wife of a member of the company of prophets cried to Elisha, “Your servant my husband is dead; and you know that your servant feared the Lord, but a creditor has come to take my two children as slaves.”‘ 2 Kings 4:1

The widow who came to confide in Elisha that day was having a hard time. Her husband, from amongst the company of the prophets, had died leaving her financially destitute and the sole carer of two sons. To make matters worse, he had died still owing a huge debt. His unmerciful creditor now threatened to take her two boys as his own slaves. They were the woman’s only hope of financial provision, comfort and support in her old age.

Talk about stress!

In desperation, she turned to the man of God for a miracle. Surely God would remember her husband’s faithfulness to Him and in mercy provide an answer to her suffering and need. In obedience to Elisha’s advice, the widow and her sons gathered as many jars as they could find from amongst their neighbours. The number of jars was an indication of their faith in God’s provision.

What if the widow had believed that God could only bless her a little so she gathered just one or two jars? Surely a little trust in God would have resulted in a small portion of the blessing that God had in store for her.

However, as the story goes, she did not let the stress of the situation or the troubling circumstances stop her. She remained confident and trusted in God’s willingness and ability to provide. She gathered as many jars as she could – a display of her faith. God did the rest. And she was richly rewarded.

The widow did her part and trusted that God would miraculously do His. Similarly, our heavenly Father is eager to do magnificent works in our lives.

God’s provision is as large as our willingness to receive. Every time we take a step of faithful trust in the direction of His leading, we are placing another jar out for God to fill with His blessing.

Let’s not limit God’s provision but believe our God can do more than we can ask or imagine according to His power at work in us.
