How to Handle Stress (2205)
Many of us are emotionally fatigued, physically drained, and spiritually defeated; and the reason is stress. Spend some time waiting on the Lord today. Let His Word be your strength in times of stress.

Sermon Overview
Scripture Passage: Isaiah 40:28-31

Do you ever feel there’s too much to do and not enough time to do it?

Many of us are emotionally fatigued, physically drained, and spiritually defeated; and the reason is stress. Stress is the gap between the demands placed upon us and our ability to meet those demands.

It’s not a sin to be stressed, but it is a sin to reject the help given to you to relieve you from your stress. God offers His insurmountable strength to us so that we may learn how to handle stress.

Isaiah 40:31 says, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.”

God will help us fly in the rigors of life. A mother eagle teaches her eaglets to fly by making the nest uncomfortable. In the same way, God lovingly nudges us to the edge of our comfort zone, so that we may learn to fly.

God will teach us to run in the rush of life. There’s enough time every day to do everything God wants you to do; sometimes we have to run to get it done. We need to run like an athlete, trusting God to sustain us, so that we will not grow weary.

God will aid us as we walk in the routines of life. Our greatest need is day-by-day faithfulness in the little things, steadily walking day by day in the regular humdrum times of life.

Adrian Rogers says, “Do you know what victory is? It is all day, every day, hot days, cold days, dull days, bright days, good days, bad days, walking the Christian life.”

What does waiting upon God do for us?

In times of adversity, we soar like an eagle.
In times of opportunity, we run like an athlete.
And in times of necessity, we keep walking day by day.
Apply it to your life
If you believe in the promises of God, you must wait upon Him. What does that mean, practically?

Long for Him daily
Listen to Him in your quiet time
Look to Him for your every need
Live for Him, dedicating your life to the service of the Lord.
Spend some time waiting on the Lord today. Let His Word be your strength in times of stress.

In the series White Collar Sins: Death in Its Sunday Best, Pastor Skip Heitzig challenges us to view all sin as destructive and recognize its painful consequences.
