Jesus clearly said that He gives us His peace, peace that doesn't even make sense. Once He gives it to us, He expects us to steward our hearts and to learn to stay in that peace.
It seems like people almost wear stress like a badge. Like if you're stressed, it means you're doing something with your life. We can even think that if we don't worry, we aren't being responsible. But Jesus doesn't call us to live in stress. He calls us to live in peace and from peace.
The Bible tells us that we have a good Father. When we really understand how much He loves us, we don't have to worry.
If you're struggling with worry, I challenge you to make a God Box. You could use an old shoe box or cereal box. If you want to, you could even decorate your box. Seal the box up except for a little slot where you can slip in small pieces of paper.
When you are worried, write your worry on a slip of paper, read it to God, and slip it into the box. Once you've put it into the box, you can't take it out again. Your worry now belongs to God.
You could say this is the opposite of putting God in a box. Put your worries into the box and let God do what only He can do.
Destiny Key: Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. Matthew 6:34 MSG
