Stress is the underlying cause of a lot of diseases and disorders. In addition, stress undermines your immune system and different organs are affected by it. There are vulnerable organs in individuals that tend to succumb to stress more than others. For some, there is a weakness in the heart and for others the kidneys or the womb. Some of these weaknesses in organs are familial as they run in families. You can usually spot the pattern by following your family line of illnesses. In some families heart disease is common and in others, it could be breast cancer. Lowering stress levels can mitigate or even cancel the onset of diseases. How does one lower stress in a world that is so chaotic and changing?
Jesus said, “Come to me all you who are stressed and I will give you rest.“(Matthew 11:28) He said to be yoked to Him and He will carry your burdens. How does He do this? By coming and living within us. He has come to take up residence in us. And He said He abides in us. He will never leave us nor forsake us even in the toughest of times. This is His promise. Will we trust Him to do so? Offer up all your worries and cares to Him; let go and let God come in and take over. If He is what He says He is, then you will find rest for your soul.
Come to Him who said the water I give you will never run dry. It will well up within you and you will never thirst again (see John 4:14). Come to the river and drink of everlasting life and fill up your soul. He never fails because He is God. You were created to live in Him and to enjoy His benefits. Be free from stress and be free to live life to the full as God designed you to be!
