Around the world today, people are dealing with unprecedented levels of stress. Never before have we had such widespread fear, anxiety, and even terror. In response to this, I believe the Lord wants to release not just the grace to deal with stress, but strategies to overcome it. Keep reading for a prophetic word on this subject, and a prayer strategy you can use to eradicate stress from your life altogether!
How God Sees Stress
“I am revealing Myself in this hour as a Wonderful Counselor because the stress and pain on the earth is so very high. Your needs are great, but My love and support is greater! It was My idea from the first to be your constant Companion and ever-present Friend. I chose to abide in you through thick and thin long before you ever invited Me to do so!
There has never been a time such as this, when people feared and fretted for their futures. No one has the capacity to endure such stress on their own; without Me their hearts will fail them, for they will quickly empty themselves of any strength they possess. Only a constant infilling of My Presence will hold men’s feet to the fire yet keep them from being burned. Men, women, and children alike need supernatural equipment to navigate the perilous times they are in.
Support in stressful times is good, but the body is designed to need ME and My direction, not just each other. Fellowship is good but will not take you farther than your arms can reach. It is friendship with God that opens new doors, new relationships, and new possibilities that give you an “escape plan” when stress from the enemy torments you.
Stress is the primary weapon the enemy is using in this hour to annoy My people and eradicate those who don’t know Me yet. All disease and all negativity feeds on stress. Watch your external reactions to stress and you will see what is happening internally as well!
Wisdom knows that stress can be a tool, not just a weapon. The enemy means to use stress as a weapon against you, but you can use it as your tool to develop a deeper relationship of trust with Me.
Stress will not undo you if you take it into your hands, acknowledge it for what it is, and then return it to the sender. (i.e., the enemy.) YOU DO NOT NEED TO TOLERATE THE PRESENCE OF STRESS WHEN YOU ARE WALKING IN THE PRESENCE OF MY SPIRIT.
Ask Me for My strategies to overcome stress and I will show you, in each situation, what you must do to eradicate it before it undoes you. I have not called you to MANAGE stress but to DEMOLISH it!”
