Blessed Is the Believer

Yet the news about Him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear Him and to be healed of their sicknesses. But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.—Luke 5:15–16 (NIV)

The next time you feel overwhelmed by stress, remember Jesus’ example in the above verse. When crowds sought His attention, Jesus frequently slipped away by Himself to pray. When you are upset, take a moment, find a quiet place and ask Him to calm your troubled heart and grant you peace of mind.

Lord Jesus, when I am overwhelmed, I can draw strength, comfort and wisdom from You.
