Let's keep in mind that God desires for each one of us as His precious people to live a stress free life that is rich in God's fulfillment.
Psalms 66:12 ...We went through fire and through water; but You brought us out to rich fulfillment.
When we look to God's solution in any matter that has the tendency to bring stress in our lives, He will bring us into a rich fulfillment. The key is learning to trust Him and His way rather than our poorly devised plans. Let's look at some of God's principles for stress free living.
1. We Must See Things From God's Perspective.
A great deal of stress can be alleviated or minimized by viewing our circumstances from a godly perspective. If we fail to perceive our life situations, at any point, as God perceives them, then we become susceptible to stress.
2. Deal With Unresolved Sins & Conflicts.
Sin generates inner tensions and conflicts and if it's unresolved, whether public or private, we must sincerely seek Christ's cleansing power and forgiveness.
3. We Must Redeem Our Time.
Many people waste time and manage it poorly. The inevitable result is a stress-filled consciousness.
4. Give Everything To God In Prayer.
5. Trust In God's Word.
When we confront life's problems, dilemmas, and uncertainties with the reality of God's Word, we can effectively overcome a great deal of stress we suffer.
6. Fellowship With One Another.
Fellowship can often provide a potent remedy for stress. Studies have proven that interaction with loved ones and friends helps relieve the pressures of stress.
Those who isolate themselves and withdraw from people and relationships suffer a greater degree of stress-related problems. Companionship with others provides access to warmth, love, understanding, comfort, counsel, and encouragement.
