We all have those days when feeling overwhelmed becomes overwhelming. I’m talking about a number of circumstances, but particularly when you’ve been faced with a recurring problem that just doesn’t seem to get better. The frustration comes in not being able to do anything about it and it might even lead to a state of depression that can physically drain you.
Jesus had those feelings on the night before He would be nailed to a cross and suffer a horrific death. He prayed that God might find another avenue to follow for the salvation of mankind. Since He was both God and man, he certainly would have been in conflict about this. He continued to pray, however, that God’s will would be done. He knew what the outcome would be, yet he struggled with the overwhelming part of it.
When we feel overwhelmed by circumstances that are weighing on us, we can see that we are in good company. The Son of God struggled with a life and death situation that night. Tears poured from His precious eyes as He prayed for an alternative. We might pray for things to be different for us too, but there are times when we must press on, even when it seems too hard to do so.
If you’re overcome by depression – if you feel totally helpless in your ability to get out of that state – if you feel you simply can’t go any further, trust that God is in control. His will is always for our good. He will never give us more than we can handle, and He certainly will help us to come up with a solution. Instead of getting to that point, turn it over to God in the first place. He assures us that He will carry our burdens for us.
