Stressed? Connect with God through Scripture!

Lorna Nichols - Thursday, February 02, 2012

The end of last year was particularly stressful for me and my husband. Before Christmas, we both were attacked with some kind of virus that just didn’t want to go away. Just as we’d think we were over it, it would come back with a vengeance. We got better in time for Christmas and then for several days in a row, we received news that someone we knew had passed away.  In the meantime, I was taking my Dad back and forth to the doctor and caring for his needs.  In the middle of all of this my husband and I were trying to create our Bible lesson videos and with each step in the process a major problem would pop up.

Although I knew this was an attack of Satan, I began getting depressed. One day while all of this was going on, my aunt called and asked me to pray for her. I thought to myself, “Pray for you, you need to pray me.”  As much as I teach about connecting with God through Scripture, it seemed to evade me. I finally started calling the name of Jesus. I just kept saying His name, Jesus, over and over again. Believe me, there’s power in the name of Jesus. Eventually, the Holy Spirit began helping me remember Scriptures like:

 Psalm 121:1-2 which says, I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth!”

 Psalm 91:14-16 in which God says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.  When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble.  I will rescue and honor them.  I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”

 Nehemiah 8:10 in which Nehemiah said to the people of Israel, Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!"

 2 Chronicles 16:9 which says, The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”

 As I remembered Scripture and meditated on the promises in God’s Word, I gradually began feeling better. How did I get out of that pit of despair? God’s Word did it. I connected with God through Scripture.  The Lord heard my call and He strengthened me!!
