do you do, when pressure presses you?
during those moments when everything that could go wrong; goes wrong.
All of your creditors are calling (delinquent
payments), financial problems, health issues, unhealthy family matters, the
lost of a love one; thereby causing your heart to be overwhelmed.
in these moments that you’ve got to put pride aside and cry out to the Lord as
David frequently did.
Hear my cry, O God;
attend unto my prayer.

Many families / marriages are under intense
pressure; at the point of bursting / falling apart due to financial hardships
which is disrupting the effective communication factor.
long as we’re here on earth, whether saved or unsaved, black or white, rich or
poor; we all will experience some form of pressure one way or another. The good
news concerning pressure is that; one’s personal relationship and fellowship with
God (Yahweh) during these pressure moments brings about a peace that surpasses
that He (God) walks with you, and He talks with you, and He tells you that
you’re His own; gives you the assurance / confidence that He will lead and
guide you through whatever challenges and storms you’re facing.

2. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the
rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou
shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
You may not be able to pay your
bills as you would have liked to, due to the financial hardship you’re facing;
you’ve had to endure being ridicule and slandered by your creditors and in some
cases even faced legal prosecution.
Yet, I encourage you; that after you’ve
done all that you can to stand; STAND even stronger for your latter days will
be by far greater than your former and present day.
The day of your breakthrough is just ahead

Do You Do, When Pressure Presses You?
I suggest that you hold onto God’s unchanging hand!
knows exactly where you are, and what you’re going through.
“your God ordained destiny is not
predicated upon which political party forms the Government or what religious
denomination / none denomination you belongs to”
has preserved you through thick and thin; as there were times when you wanted
to give up and throw in the towel, but that still small voice kept encouraging
you to hold on.
going back to David; here was an anointed man of God, called to do a great work
/ had to fight many battles; his personal life was filled with turmoil and as a
leader, he was under great pressure from the people; which caused him to be greatly

pressure, presses you; your praise and worship is the release valve (a powerful
regulator) that will and can defuse any and all kinds of stress. We’ve got to
get to that point in our walk with God, where we begin to speak to ourselves

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget
not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities;
who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good
things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Use your praise
and worship to press, pressure back in its place:
