Pressure and joy

December 21st, 2018

Psalm 119:143-144 NLT – As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands. [144] Your laws are always right; help me to understand them so I may live.

As the pressure closes in and we become stressed, it is important to press into God’s Word, the Bible. Like David we can find joy in His commands. The Bible shows there is more to this life than the current worries and concerns we may be facing. The Bible shows we are eternal and everything we face in this life will soon pass. The Bible shows will spend way more time in eternity that we do in this life.

Prayer

Dear God, thank You that when I become stressed or worried about the problems of this life, I can run to You and Your Word. I pray that I will find joy and strength in Your commands. I pray that I will remember that I will spend way more time in eternity and the problems of this life are momentary compared to the glories of heaven. Amen
