Yesterday, I asked the question, “How do you handle stress?” Almost 400 answers later and I’m convinced we need the book Stressed-Less Living more than ever!
Thank you so much for your honest and truthful responses. If you didn’t get to check out the post and comments from yesterday’s, you can click here to see.
It’s obvious by sharing over the past few days, that most of us are experiencing high stress in various areas of our lives. This stress can affect our minds, physical bodies, relationships, decisions, work production, and our normal function in daily life.
One of the sweet ladies who shared yesterday is Allee Perez. Allee shared her stress but also shared how God’s Word helps her in her stressful times. Allee, you inspired me with this and the verses your shared are the topic of this post.
As we will learn in this study, God’s Word has all the answers. God’s Word can be a source of help in our time of need. Let’s test this out today.
Psalm 107:19-20 contains some powerful words to help us when we are stressed for whatever reason. I could write these verses out for you, but I’m going to actually have you do some of the work yourself because that’s what good Bible study leaders do~
Today we are going to visit one of my favorite Bible websites, BibleGateway.com. I’ve searched the site for the verses Allee mentioned, Psalm 107:19-20. I actually looked up various Bible translations (versions) so that you could read them all. Basically these different versions say pretty much the same thing, just using a few different words. It doesn’t matter to me which Bible version you use for our Online Bible Study. As long as it’s the Bible, you can select the version you prefer.
Think of your most stressful situation and the affects it has on your life. Then click here to read the power God’s Word in Psalm 107:19-20 can have. After you look at these verses online, try to find them in your own Bible. (Don’t have a Bible? Email Angie@Proverbs31.org and let her know that you don’t have a Bible. No promises, but we’ll try our best to get one in your hands very soon.)
Read the verses again. Write them in a notebook or journal. Allee suggests memorizing Scripture. Give it a try. God’s power is in His Word, meant for us to use in our everyday lives. The only way we can draw on His Word is to be in His Word.
