First Steps to Take When Your Heart Is Overwhelmed?

Is your heart overwhelmed? Do you feel defeated by life’s circumstances? Are you consumed with worry? Whatever the source of discouragement may be, you know that without an intervention of God you can’t continue on. If this is where you find yourself today, I want you to know that God is willing and able to intervene and help you through life’s hurts.

When your heart is overwhelmed, and you’ve reached your limit, cry out to God in prayer. You say to yourself, “I don’t have the strength to pray.” Then pray this prayer recorded in Psalm 61:1-3, “Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy.”

You feel defeated by life’s circumstances. Things have not turned out as you had hoped they would. The attacks of the enemy against you have been relentless, and you feel worn-down. Jesus tells us in John 10:10, “The thief, (satan) comes only to steal, to kill, and to destroy…” He is the one responsible for all this destruction in your life. So, you know the source of the attacks, but what do you do now? Jesus gives you guidance, and His promise in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” He even promises to strengthen and uphold you in Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Again, the only way to overcome great difficulties is to come to Him.

You find yourself consumed with worry. God’s Word instructs us in Psalm 55:22 to “Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.” He desires for you to give Him that worry, to cast that care upon Him. He promises to take care of the situation for you. He can take the worst of situations and work them out for us. Proverbs 3:5-6 encourages us to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

These are the first steps that we take when our heart is overwhelmed, and God is faithful, and is willing and able to help you.

    Becky, please pray for my son who basically ran away because he was overwhelmed with online schooling and dealing with depression. I would like him to return home and trust God to work things out for him. He would rather get a GED than finish schooling. He really needs prayer to make right choices.

    1. Becky Dvorak says:

      In the name of Jesus’, I plead the power of the blood of Jesus over his mind and emotions. That he will deal with this fear and depression and repent from rebellion. I pray for God’s protection to surround him. I pray for a deep desire to return home and to his family. In Jesus’ name, amen.

  2. Lisa Schlee says:

    Please pray for my husband John. He has ALS. He can no longer walk, use his hands and I can no longer hear or understand him. We claim “by his stripes he is healed”!

    1. Becky Dvorak says:

      In the name of Jesus, I renounce this spirit of death, ALS. I release the healing power of the blood of Jesus to flow through John’s nervous system, nerve cells in his brain and spinal cord. I speak recreation to these, and that John regains all muscle control, speech, breathing and able to eat, have control of his limbs and walk again. In the mighty name of Jesus, amen and amen.

    Please pray for mom eye surgery on Thursday to stop bleeding behind the eye, her name is Mildred. Blessings.

    1. Becky Dvorak says:

      In the name of Jesus, I renounce as spirit of infirmity, a spirit of fear. I release the healing power of Holy Spirit to flow into Mildred’s eye cleansing it of all bleeding and the causes of this hemorrhaging and restoring normal function and vision. In Jesus’ name, I declare she is healed and made whole, amen.
