How stressed are you? Lots of things cause us stress. Stress is both a psychological and physiological response to adverse events or events negatively perceived. It could be a health issue, relationship problems or some other situation that feels challenging or threatening.
When stressed out, we’re emotionally and spiritually vulnerable. If we’re not careful, we make bad decisions that create turmoil and trouble for us.
Dealing with stress is something we must learn to do to live a successful life. One thing that helps us handle stress is confidence in God.
What is confidence? It’s the strength that comes from trust. Webster defines it as, “the state of being certain.” The confident person is sure of something. They possess an internal certainty that affects their outward functioning.
Strong spiritual confidence causes us to be our best, in all realms of life. It stimulates peak performance, generates healthy emotions and improves our interpersonal relationships. The psalmist David spoke of the importance of strong spiritual confidence during stressful times in, Psalm 4:3 (NLT) “You can be sure of this: The Lord set apart the godly for himself. The Lord will answer when I call to him.” David was confident in God. He knew that God would help him in his time of need.
Spiritual confidence is the beginning point to overcome stress. Don’t less your circumstances shake your trust in God!
