James 4:6

Philippians 4:13

13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength. (NIV)

This is one of the scriptures of the Bible that flies in the face of the most quoted non-scripture of all times "The Lord helps those who help themselves".  In reality it is ONLY through Him that we are able to accomplish his will for us.

Proverbs 3: 1-2

1 My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, 2 for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. (NIV)

Everyday we must make a conscious effort to keep the Lord's commands in us.  Think about stress.  Stress does not come from the Lord, stress comes from the world.  When you feel stress rising, stop and give thanks to the Lord for all that He has done for you.
