Stress Relief - God longs for our time

Genesis 1:26 (NKJV) - Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 

We are the only thing listed in the Scriptures that is created in the image of God. And because of this, He wants to spend time intimately with each of us. No other created thing has this privilege. He wants us to come and be quiet with Him. And, when we do this, we will find that He becomes very intimate with us.

It is in these quiet times with God that we see the as Paul refers to Him in Philippians 4:9 - "the God of peace will be with you." He speaks of this in Romans 15:33 also. It is this God of peace who will calm all of our worries, our fears, and the stress of life. He will remove them and give us a calmness of soul and a peace of mind.

Today, take the time to get quiet with Him, alone with Him, and listen to Him - and we shall see Him provide sweet fellowship and shower peace upon our being. Don't rush it - linger and enjoy the presence of God.
