Beloved, do you feel so overwhelmed with stress, pressure, and responsibility that you can barely function? If so, the Lord gave me a precious word for your heart today.
The Lord says:
“I see your panic and raise you My peace.
I see that you have been in a panic about many things. Things beyond your control have been delayed; things you can control have been squeezed out while you have been putting out fires. Everything you can do has not been enough to gain you any margin in your life, and things feel to you like they are spiraling out of control.
My daughter, My son: My Word still says to be anxious for nothing; but in everything, with prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, you are to make your requests known to Me. You are doing that right now, and you have been doing that. As the days go by, you are learning the value of praying even more and more.
My beloved, I am coming in to help you.

Here are all the posts in the Rest in God, Reach Your Destiny series:
My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in your weakness. I am mindful that you are but dust, and I still made you that way.
Your strength is nothing compared to Me; you have no strength of your own. And if you cannot do even the smallest thing without Me, can you not believe Me to do ALL the things for you and through you?
Go ahead and give up thinking that you can do some things, but not others. You truly can do nothing without Me, but I will make a way where there seems to be no way.
I have not abandoned you nor forsaken you. You have been in a panic, but I am right here with you, just like I have always been, doing absolutely everything for you. Nothing is done on your own.
In the face of your inadequacy, I give you My peace.
You cannot breathe on your own, so I gave you My Breath–My Spirit–to propel the air in your lungs. You cannot wake up on your own in the mornings, but I gave you My Son Who constrains you and holds your body together. You cannot tell what to do or where to go in any way, but I guide you from moment to moment.
You have been concerned about many things, but only one thing is needful:
Seek Me and tell Me how needy you are. Ask Me for My help and My tangible grace in absolutely everything.
Even if you walk by your task list, your unfinished laundry, your house that needs cleaning, your work that needs to be done, and cannot imagine how they will all get done, just pray: “Jesus, help me.” “Father, help me.” “Holy Spirit, help me.” And I will help you continuously, by the by as time goes on!

You cannot do everything at once, so do not try.
But, you can follow My leading. That is why I say only one thing is needful: to seek Me and search for Me and find Me. This seeking and searching continues all day long, even in asking Me what My will is for your next moment.
I know you have work to do; I will help you! I will show you My will from moment to moment, even as it pertains to the things you think are mundane in life. They all matter to Me, and I will get you through them.
I see your panic, and I raise you My peace. I see your exhaustion, and I raise you My rest. I see your utter helplessness, and I raise you My grace. And I see your desperation, but I raise you My joy.
All things are permissible (1 Corinthians 10:23), but not all things are helpful. I will lead you from moment to moment, from step to step, so you can function in My grace.
Believe Me and seek Me.
Learn to abide in Me, and make abiding in Me your priority from moment to moment, day to day. All things will come together for you over time if you will do this.
Love, your Abba Father.”
