Do you find yourself constantly looking for new ways to get rid of stress, anxiety, and even fear? Every day we are bombarded with decisions, struggles and stresses, that can cause us to become overwhelmed and lose focus of who we are, our talents, and especially, who God is. This is what you would call a life without Christ.

We don’t even realize it, but we try to do so many things on our own, that we forget why Jesus even gave us the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is like a counselor; He helps lead us on the right path, helps convict us, comfort us, and even heal us. He can also give us supernatural peace; peace that radiates and overpowers any fear, stress or anxiety that we face.

Isaiah 9:6 says, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Isaiah 11:2, goes on to say, “And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.”

When we put ourselves first before Christ, we make us more important than Jesus. We also end up trying to control our entire lives, and not ask what God wants for us. When we choose to be lead by the Holy Spirit, we are welcoming in the fruits of God’s peace and love! Remember, nothing is too big or too small for Him.

To live freely, with constant peace, remind yourself to give everything to God, including the large and small struggles. He will give you a peace that will conquer all.

You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.

Isaiah 26:3 (NKJV)
