imagesI remember some of the old timers in my father’s church as just a little boy, would always have this catchy phrases about how blessed they were. One of those sayings was, “I’m too blessed to be stressed.” But in a world with some many distractions, opportunities, and hardship, we can turn that saying around sadly to say, “Most are too stressed to be blessed.” In Daniel 7:25 it speaks of the Anti-christ who will, “…speak against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High…” One of Satan’s assignments is to wear you down. That’s why Jesus said in Matthew 24:13, “But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” I want to talk about the end-time struggle. In Luke 21, Jesus said that men’s hearts would fail them from fear and the expectation of those things which are to come… One of the attacks from Satan in the last hour is to wear out the saints through anxiety and fear. Just in America alone, approximately 40 million plus people suffer from anxiety disorders, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Satan desires to stress you to a place of fear and anxiety, and ultimately rob you of the very thing that can keep you, that is your FAITH. It is sad to say but many people do not understand the concept of testing and trial in the eyes of God. We have been raised in church and been promised only the best of God’s blessing and never prepared for the attacks ahead. More
