Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
I am currently reading “Leaders Eat Last” by Simon Sinek. In the book he talks about the 4 chemicals in our bodies that control the actions and reactions of our bodies. As I read todays verse, I thought about his chapter on cortisol. Cortisol is the main stress hormone. It is what causes the feeling of fight or flight when something scares us. When elevated we get stressed out. Our bodies were not designed to handle stress for long periods of time.
We don’t have to be under stress and fear all the time. We don’t have to be in a consistent flight or fight mood. If we know God, then we have a source to draw upon that can help us be calm in times of stress and anxiety. If we have a relationship with God, then He is our strength that will get us through the trials and tribulations of life.
Does that mean we will not stress out about anything else, ever? Let’s face it we are still going to stress out, we are still going to have times that the cortisol gets pumping in our blood stream and we go into fight or flight mode. However, when we have a personal relationship with Jesus, He assures us the flight we need to take is the one to His loving arms.
