Sermon Notes

Conquer Stress

• Mental or physical tension or strain
• Involves the pressures of life, and how you perceive, react, and cope with those pressures
• 95% of all sickness & disease is stress-related

1.  Have an eternal perspective

See things from an Eternal perspective, rather than a Temporal one.

2 Cor. 4:17
“These light and momentary troubles are achieving for us a glory that outweighs them all.”

In the light of eternity that is highly insignificant.

2.  Have Faith in God’s Watchcare

Simply believe God’s word to you.

Heb. 13:5
“I will never leave you.  I will never forsake you.”

Matt. 28:20
“I am with you always.”

Jer. 29:11
“I know the plans I have for you....”

Psalm 121:3
“He who keeps you will not slumber.”

3.  See Life as a Daring Adventure

• Stop seeing problems as......problems.
• Life is a daring adventure or it is nothing at all.

Josh. 1:6-9
“6 Be strong and courageous, you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. 7 Be strong and very courageous.  Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you.  Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. 8 Study this Book of Instruction continually.  Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it.  Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. 9 This is my command – be strong and courageous!  Do not be afraid or discouraged.  For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go .”

• Strong = don’t let anyone or anything shake you loose
• Courageous = to have eager feet
