Do we prefer the chains of stress to the freedom of miracles? When we’re God’s child—we get to choose. Think about yesterday—was your life riddled with stress and frustration or overflowing with peace and satisfaction? If, at the end of the day, I’m filled with frustration, stress and discontent—it’s a sure sign that something isn’t right between me and God. God isn’t stressed out. When things are right between us, it doesn’t matter how big my problems are because at the end of the day—I may be tired—but I’m also content and peaceful.

It’s not the size of my problem that stresses me out—it’s my distance from God. God doesn’t get stressed out. When I’m close to Him—I don’t either. When I’m close to Him, I hear Him. He guides me in His will. When I’m following His will then I’m doing His business. His business isn’t stressful or risky—because it’s His. God said: “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27) When God leads me to give money, time or resources that I don’t think I can spare—I take a greater risk when I don’t do it because I risk distancing myself from God.

When God’s children don’t trust His guidance it’s a reflection of how blind we’ve become. We’re like a king’s kid who won’t give a needy person ten dollars because we think we’ll run out of money. We’ve forgotten that all the treasures of the kingdom belong to us. Our Heavenly Father is “him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think!” (Ephesians 3:20a) We don’t have to worry and figure everything out. We just need to be close to Him, listen and obey. He can accomplish more than we comprehend. His goals are greater than we can imagine! When we live in His miracles, we don’t want to go back to life dominated by stress. God has so much more for us. He has miracles planned for today. If we’re close to Him—we will live them!
