When Relief Is Only Temporary...

Have you ever experienced relief from a problem only to have it come right back? Sometimes the issue is a result of warfare or just natural circumstances, but other times it’s a direct result of our own stubbornness.

King Saul disobeyed the Lord, and because of his disobedience, he was tormented by an evil spirit. He found that he got relief from the torment only when David played his harp and worshiped the Lord.

That’s amazing, but the relief was only temporary. David could not possibly play 24/7. As great as the gift of David’s worship was, Saul could’ve easily found permanent relief by humbling himself and repenting of his sin.

This same thing happens over and over today. People hide sin in their hearts and they end up suffering because of it. Then they go to church and experience God’s presence in worship. God’s presence is so wonderful and powerful that they experience some relief. But the relief is only temporary.

As followers of Jesus, we can’t just look for a “fix". It’s not enough to merely experience some temporary relief. We need to look to Him for Him.

You see, true peace only comes through being absolutely surrendered and obedient to Jesus. Partner with the Holy Spirit, who is your Helper, to live a life of purity and obedience! This is the pathway out of anxiety and into peace!
