Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Isaiah 41:10

This week, we’re going to be talking a little about stress. We all face stressful times and situations in our lives. You might have lots of pressure to make a sports team, or practice an instrument. Perhaps your history project has you up at night worried because you’re just not sure you can finish it in time.

Stress comes to us all at times in our lives. And while the feelings of stress are very real and justified, stress is really just fear.

Stress comes because you’re afraid that you don’t have enough time, or resources to do what’s in front of you to do. But here’s the thing, we aren’t to live our lives as Christians in fear. So we have to learn how to deal with stress in healthy ways.

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. – Isaiah 41:10 (NLT)

Today’s verse tells us to not be afraid. God wouldn’t tell us to do something that we can’t do. So our goal in life is going to be not to allow stress to shut us down or stop us from doing our best for God.

Today, choose to identify stress as what it is, fear. Then determine that fear will not run your life. Fear isn’t healthy and will stop you from doing the things God has called you to do. So begin to speak to your fears. Tell them that they can’t run your life. Look to God and ask Him for His help in walking free from fear.

Today’s Truth: Stress is fear. Get God’s help to walk free from fear.
