Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the centre of your life. Philippians 4:6‭-‬7 MSG

The stress and perils of the present days are by far more overwhelming than what any human capacity and ability can bear for long. In a time such as this, depending on your resources, wisdom and strength will only bring discouragement and depression.

Every attempt to rely on anyone will only produce terrible disappointments because everyone has his big burdens to carry. But if you decide to look away from your challenges, from yourself and from everyone around you to focus only on Jesus Christ, certainly your heart shall be at peace, your face shall become radiant and you will never be put to shame.

Seek to know Jesus, only Jesus. He alone is sufficient and strong to make you stand. If you steadfastly set your eyes on Him, He will supply you with strength and courage to rise above your challenges and you will live victoriously in this hard time.

Never attempt to bear your burdens by yourself, cast all your cares upon Jesus and allow Him to handle all your worries for you. He alone can help you in such a time like this. He will never let you down if you will trust Him with your life. May the LORD God increase your strength and saturate your heart with His peace today and always. Good morning, enjoy a peaceful day.
