You were not created to live in stress. It’s not the natural state of your spiritual DNA. You were made to live in rest. When we fail to do that, we allow fear into our lives, and that introduces all kinds of problems, including sickness.
You may need to talk to yourself. Return to your rest, O my soul, For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you. (Psalms 116:7) Return to rest is to return to its natural state. That kind of rest can only come when we trust God to take care of us and help us through all the issues of our life.
Jesus makes it easy, He says, Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:29) He promises to do all the heavy lifting so you don’t have to. He wants to do the work for you so you can rest.
Imagine that! No stress. No worry. Do what you know to do and trust that God will do what you cannot. Relax. Take a deep breath and thank God for taking care of you. Even in the middle of a hectic day, you can carry rest in your spirit so you don’t stress out. Practice saying this: Return rest, o my soul!
