“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away. Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap.” Luke 21:33-34

Do you have a built-in “stress barometer” that constantly measures your stress level? Does the pressure sometimes rise so slowly that you don’t even realize that it has reached a boiling point? That’s when I need to take a break in the Lord. He often draws me to a quiet place to rest. Too many responsibilities and the fast pace of life can take my thoughts off God. For years, worry and stress led me down "the wrong path" and caused me even more problems. Thankfully, I have no desire to deal with stress that way anymore. In the above scripture verse, Jesus warned us about becoming trapped in sinful habits including the anxieties of life.

Recognizing and admitting what things weigh on my heart helps me enter the Lord’s rest. Sometimes an anxious emptiness rises up inside me, letting me know that I need to spend time with God. Entering God’s rest means to become quiet and allow Him to speak to my heart. I must shut out the anxieties of life and listen for that still, small voice of God. As I practice this, and also submit to my “stress barometer,” my heart becomes lighter, and I hear His voice over my circumstances. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Insight: The anxieties of life can keep us from resting in the Lord. What weighs your heart down? Spend some time with God. Meditate on His Word and pray to Him on these things.

Readers Prayer: Dear Lord, Please use any anxiety I may have as an excuse to get alone to seek Your will, through prayer and Your Holy Word. I want to hear Your still small voice in the quiet of my heart. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
