We have to trust God at all times and put our confidence in Him. Proverbs 3vs 5-6 says Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do,everywhere you go; He's the one who will keep you on track. The word maintain means to stick to correctly, keep in a certain state, keep clean, hold in place, sustain. In order to abide in Gods presence we need to maintain the standard Christ has set out before us. How do we handle stress? Is our confidence in God maintained during times of distress? God has a powerful truth for us to hear. We do not handle stressful situations by fighting against them, instead God calls us to be at rest in Him. In Ps46:10 David remind us that we should maintain the standard and be still in the presence of the Lord. To the apostle Peter it meant refusing to carry burdens not meant for him: " casting all your care upon Him for He cares for you. Our human instinct wants to find the nearest emergency exit but God calls us to draw near and absorb the truth in the Scriptures. Most of all God wants us to know Him and the power of His resurrection. Our stress need not become distress. When we place our confidence in God we will be able to walk through difficult circumstances with inner quietness mentioned in Gal5:22 and we can say with confidence "The Lord is my helper, and I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Heb 13:6. This is our heritage in Christ Jesus. Reject every trace of confusion and act on Gods promises. Do not allow confusion to gain a stronghold in your mInd it will block you from taking possession of Gods promises. Wait on the Lord in confidence and draw His wisdom to lead you into Victory. Shalom
