Today's featured devotional...
pressuregaugeI've noticed that some Christians can't handle pressure or adversity in their walk with the Lord. As long as everything is going fine and the devil isn't exerting too much pressure on them, they're okay. But the minute they encounter problems or things don't fall into place, they go to pieces.

First Peter 5:7 instructs Christians to cast all of their cares on the Lord. I know this is not always easy to do. But when the pressure is on, it's the only way to walk above the circumstances and not be buried by them.

The next time you are under pressure and you are tempted to cave in, here are some things you can do. If you follow these four simple steps, you will be able to overcome pressure instead of pressure overcoming you.

Keep Your Focus on God

Isaiah 26:3 says, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee because he trusteth in thee." Many people who encounter a crisis fail to keep their minds stayed on the Lord. They focus on the negative and only see what is going wrong. Instead of believing their situation can have a positive outcome, they begin to doubt that they will ever recover.

Focusing on the problem won't do you any good. In fact, the more you think about the problem instead of the Problem Solver, the weaker your faith becomes.

To rise above pressure, you have to think on the right things. You must replace negative thoughts with good, positive thoughts. Doubt has to be replaced with faith.

The Apostle Paul told the Philippians to "let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 2:5). What was in the mind of Christ? All things are possible if you can believe (Mark 9:23). Whatever is impossible with man is possible with God (Luke 18:27).

Problems become small or great, depending on the way you think about them. We see an example of this in the book of Matthew when Peter walked on water.
