Q. "HOW ARE YOU RESPONDING TO THE PRESSURES OF LIFE OR THE PRIORITIES OF LIFE AS A CHRISTIAN?"
One evening, a Pastor met a friend from his church at the Psychiatrist's office and asked him, "Matthew, are you coming or going?"
" If I knew that, I wouldn't be here!"
Beloved of God, satan's goal is to wear out the saints, until you don't know whether you're coming or going!! ( Please read: the Book of Daniel chapter 7 and verse 25). Satan has always been in this field of business and if you don't know, he has quite a few businesses!
He's in the business of preventing you from having fellowship with God and His saints; he's in the business of making you neglect prayer and worshipping God; he's in the business of making you get hooked on anything else apart from God - it could be sex, drugs, marital affairs, adultery, pornography, alcohol; etc, etc...
Satan is good at his job and he does it by weighing you down with things that aren't necessarily sinful, but drains you emotionally, physically, spiritually, and even financially!
Apostle Paul says in the Book of Hebrews chapter 12 and verse 1: "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every WEIGHT, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us."
In other words the great man of God was simply saying to the Body of Christ, 'Establish your Godly priorities, then discipline yourself to live by them. Be sober and alert! Watch and pray! Meditate on God's Word daily! Learn what to off-load; what to delegate, and what not to pick up in the first place (this takes the wisdom of discernment)!!
Beloved of God, I repeat, 'How are you responding to the pressures of life and the priorities of life, as a Christian?
