We all have stress. Watching a debate of the future of the country can add more stress to our lives. Let me share with you how I deal with stress, so that next time you see me stressed out, I want you to remind me of this.
Remember Daniel? The prophet Daniel? When the laws of the country were being changed by deceitful men, there is something that he did right away. In Daniel 6:10 we find this scripture, “Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.” (NIV)
We just don’t pray often enough. Our prayers need to be lifted to the father every day at all times, without ceasing. You see that governments will not change the spiritual situation of a country. The word of God will. We need to be living, preaching and loving the word of God. We may not be able to change the laws that are already signed, but we can pray that we can have the courage to stand strong in our faith when that time comes. I want you to stop what you’re doing right now, find a place where you can be alone, get on your knees and pray.
