Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
Psalm 46:10

Have you noticed how easy it is to get all stressed out? At times this life can seem to bring one worry after another. You fall behind with assignments at work or at school, the list of projects at home begin to pile up, money is tight, and health issues arise. It can all become so overwhelming that stress and worry take over.

But God would say to us, "Stop striving, be still and know that I am God." Now this isn't a call to let all of your responsibilities go, but rather to put things into perspective and rest in the fact that He is God. All the things you and I need, He has. All the things we worry about and agonize over, He has the answers for and will give us the wisdom and ability to overcome any challenge that He puts before us.

Life is too short to live it all stressed out. Furthermore, anytime we are all stressed out, it reveals a heart that is not actively trusting God. God did not make you to carry the burdens of life, He wants to carry them for you and work through you to get everything accomplished that He has for you to do.

Put first things first. "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." (Matthew 6:33). Then God will be exalted in and through you.
