The Apostle Paul encourages each of us to “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling…” (Philippians 2:12). But James, the brother of Jesus, sternly cautions believers to not make plans too hastily lest they walk outside the will of the Lord. (James 4:13-17) So, we make plans, trying to discern God’s will but we invariably encounter interruptions to our plans. These interruptions cause us stress. What is the proper way, the God pleasing way, to handle interruptions and stress? The ideas presented in this sermon might surprise you.
