Are You Stressed Or Blessed?

Matt. 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls. Being in the ministry 24/7 and pastoring a church, enables us to view the lives of many people. It seems that the attacks of the enemy have been turned up and that he is throwing everything he has, at believers, in order to get them to quit and give up. These are the times we need to press into God all the more fervently. It's during our darkest hours that we need to release the power of praise from our mouth and declare to the devil, "I'm not quitting!" "I have the victory!" Our praise will confound the devil. Here he is hitting you with everything he has and you're praising God. That just doesn't make sense. But you just keep praising, even when you don't feel like it. Even when nothing seems to have changed, in fact it has gotten worse. What the enemy can't stand is that your praise is bringing the power down to change your situation. Like Dory from the Nemo movie said, "Just keep swimming!, Just keep swimming!" You "JUST KEEP PRAISING!" JUST KEEP PRAISING!" Your blessing is just around the corner.
