Stress is not a part of Gods plan for His children. Unfortunately, 74% adults confesses to feeling stressed, overwhelmed and unable to cope during the festive season. That is the few weeks running up to the end of the year and your story can be different. His plan for you is to be in good health as your soul prospers. As a car is manufactured with a shock absorber so is your body created with a resistance to stress. Since you are God’s child, you have the right to good health. You can claim the DNA of the living and live stress free for life.
Your body is the temple of the living God and nothing can destroy God’s temple. You have been hard-wired with resistance to stress. It is woven into your body system. That is why you always bounce back from ill health. Most importantly though is for you to prevent stress from getting through to you. When you surrendered yourself to God, you surrendered your body too hopefully. This means that you carry the DNA of the living God in your body and it does not accommodate destructive elements in the body. Your body is the temple fo God and nothing can destroy God’s temple.

If God did not create you without adding resistance to pressure points in your body system, you would not have been able to withstand all manner of stress attack targeted at you on a daily basis. Thankfully, you are alive today and you are still standing to the glory of God.
There are some biblical figures who went through stress and overcame it with God on their side. Elijah overcame stress when Jezebel threatened to kill him (1 Kings 19:4-14), David eventually got victory over king Saul who constantly chased after David to kill him (1 Samuel 18-23), Moses was relieved of the stress of leading an unrepentant nation through delegation of judgement (Exodus 18), Daniel was protected from the lions den (Daniel 6), Esther found favour before God and before the king for the salvation of the Jewish nation from untimely death(Esther 5-10) and many more men and women of the Bible who overcame stress. You too can overcome stress.
God has empowered you to resist and overcome any situation or circumstances that he has not planned for your life. You are a child of God with an inner strength fuelled by the spirit of the highest God. If it were not so, you would have buckled under the attack of stress by now but you have bounced back from stress everyday effortlessly and sometimes unknowingly.
For as long as you draw strength from God, you stay close to Him, you draw breath from Him, you will keep bouncing back. No suffering can overcome you. No hindrances or any obstacles can keep you down for as long as you keep standing in the Lord faithfully and prayerfully.
When you experience a level of stress that you are unable to deal with by yourself, call out to your creator for a boost in your resistance level. When your resistance immunity seems weakened by life’s trials and tribulations, I dare you to reach out to God through his word for a strengthening. Keep building your resistance muscles in the word. Reach out for the word of God, declare it out loud over yourself and speak the word into your world and get the help you need in the times of stress.
