Della Devotional - Stress

Lately my family and I have been under so much stress, that sometimes it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. You feel like giving up, but God says Hold On! I've got something better in store. I have decided to start doing a weekly devotional on the blog. Devotionals make me stronger in my walk with God. They give me inspiration and make me realize that God hasn't went anywhere. That he's always been right here with me. 




  I hope these devotionals are of some help to you too! With all of the stress that I have been under, it only seems fitting for this weeks devotional to be about stress. 

Here are some bible verses that you can turn to when you are stressed out:


  • Romans 8:31 - What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
  • Proverbs 16:3 - Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
  • John 14:27 - Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
  • Matthew 11:28 - Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
  • 1 John 4:18 - There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
  • John 16:33 - These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
  • 1 Peter 5:7 - Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.


God doesn't want us to stress out. But we are only human and of course that's what we do. He wants us to put all of our trust in him. He wants us to know and realize that he will take care of us and all of our problems. Stress of all kinds is a natural part of life but how we deal with it is up to us. If we choose to try to do it on our own, we face a long, uphill battle that will not end well. 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.
