Hi <<Preferred Name>>
My prayer for today is for you to draw close to Jesus. No matter the pressure, stress, difficulty or any situation you face today, know that He is near to those who humble themselves and cry out for Him.
I woke up today feeling immense stress. As I stopped to pinpoint where it was coming from, I realized most of the stress points were concerning things I am responsible for, some relating to ministry/work, some to family.
I was struck by how much of the stress and anxiety I was feeling was centered on things that I am not in control of. I realize that my stress and anxiety comes from a place of unbelief in the character of God.
It is such a humbling yet freeing moment to realize when you become stuck and entangled in being your own god. We aren't meant to be a god, we are built and designed to be dependent on the one true God.
For me, today, it is such a life-giving moment to recognize my frailty yet in the same moment have such joy and freedom as I see that all along He is beside me, behind me and ahead of me.
Be encouraged today that He is close to you.
