A Good Shepherd

He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
Psalm 23:2-3
 

Everyone suffers from stress at one time or another. The only way we can deal with stress is with Jesus Christ, first by believing in Him. Without believing in Him we are on our own, and success in coping with stress is almost impossible. Second, we need to trust Him and obey Him. We should trust Him to do what is right because His ways are always best for us. Disobedience and sin can produce stress and cut us off from the only means of peace and joy. By obeying His commandments we reap the blessings of true contentment from a loving God. Finally, we need to seek His peace daily by filling our minds with His Word, lifting all things to Him in prayer, and sitting at His feet in awe and reverence. It is only by His grace, mercy and love that the stress in our lives can be managed. -Wayne Mack

Prayer for the day:

Lord, thank you that you are my good Shepherd and my true rest and blessing are found in trusting you. Thank you for showing me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy. Thank you for your care and guidance in all my days. Thank you for restoring and refreshing my soul, give me peace in tribulations, and bring me hope even circumstances seem hopeless. I will not fear nor be discouraged, for you are with me and you have not given me a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. As I endeavour to walk in the light, I know you will fill me with goodness, righteousness and truth. I will take hold of my authority in Christ and conquer every attack from the enemy. This I pray in Jesus' name.
