Chaos To Comfort

There are times we feel overwhelmed with too much to do and not enough time. Deadlines, overwhelming requirements, pressure from people, appointments, circumstances out of our control and the list goes on. Anxiety begins taking over while negativity and hopelessness creeps in. The good news is that God can replace chaos with comfort for His children.


Proverbs 12: 25, "Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up." We must go to God's Word with confidence to be comforted. Psalm 1:2 instructs us to meditate on God’s Word day and night. "...but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night." Memorize a short scripture like Psalm 46: 10, "be still and know that I am God..." Recite this verse and watch your spirit change. Isaiah 26: 3, "You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you."


1 Samuel 30: 6, "David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God." In Mark 4, the disciples were crossing a lake with Jesus when a storm came up. While they feared for their lives, Jesus slept. They woke Him and Jesus commanded the wind and the sea to “be still!” and there was peace. Among our storms and chaos, Jesus provides peace. Psalm 138: 3, " When I called, you answered me..."


Connecting with God, even for a minute, can make all the difference in your spirit. "Peace I leave with you. My Peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Your heart must not be troubled or fearful.” - John 14: 27
