Stress contradicts the Christian life. It destroys our capacity to apply divine truth and live in spirituality. Understanding this, we must realize our need to take up the amazing shield of faith that quenches the fiery darts of the devil as we put on the whole armor of God.
For faith to be produced, we must hear the Word of God. Faith-rest starts with hearing the Word of God and being filled with His Spirit. With the filling of the Spirit comes godly contentment, whereby we begin to live godly lives, revenging disobedience with obedience, moment by moment.
When we operate with God's solutions, we are able to rebound, claim God's promises, and go from faith to faith, giving grace for grace with absolute joy. Satan cannot stop or change this kind of life because of the unchangeable provisions we have within.
As we develop in our priesthood, God makes us to stand. With boldness and confidence we know who we are and why we are here.
Instead of living in stress, let's live in the provision of His promises.
