Do You Feel Overwhelmed?

Do you feel overwhelmed? Does your world feels like it’s caving in on all sides at once–look to Jesus. He’s faithful. He will never leave you, or forsake you, Hebrews 13:5. God’s not angry like the world would have you believe Him to be. Psalm 86:15 beautifully describes the goodness of God towards us, But You, O Lord, are a God [who protects and is] merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness and truth.” If you allow Him, He protects you, 2 Thessalonians 3:3 says it like this, But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you [setting you on a firm foundation] and will protect and guard you from the evil one.”

Sometimes you can feel overwhelmed because you focus on the problem, and in doing so you wind up magnifying your enemy, the devil. When in reality the things he whispers to you are just lies. In John 8:44, Jesus calls him the father of all lies–half truths. The devil takes the Scriptures and twists them, and he makes his lies believable to you, and once you grab hold of his lies they then can produce in your life. And again in John 10:10, Jesus calls the devil, the thief who comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy you. So you need to be careful what you are dwelling upon, the promises of God or the devil’s lies.

When you feel the negative reports or circumstances are too much to bear, you need to get a way to a quiet place with the Lord, and this does not need to be a physical place, but a spiritual place. You are instructed in Matthew 6:6, “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Jesus spent much time alone in prayer with the Father, and so should you.

  • After He had sent them away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. When evening came, He was there alone, Matthew 14:23.
  • Early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up and slipped out to a solitary place to pray, Mark 1:35.

The next time you feel overwhelmed by life, remember to keep your eyes focused on the Love Jesus has for you. Ponder upon His love, mercy, and lovingkindness He feels for you. Be comforted in the fact that He wills to protect you. And spend time alone with Him in prayer until His strength takes over in you.

      Hello Radford,
      I pray, in Jesus’ name that this spirit of heaviness will lift off of you. That you will see all the blessings that God has given to you. That you will find your way to financial freedom by giving. Remember, you can never out give God. I release the healing power of the Holy Spirit in and throughout your entire being and that your body is healed and made whole. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

      PS — I do not hold a doctorate degree, but I do possess the Holy Spirit within me.
