Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 

Philippians 4:4-8

Anxiety, pressure, worry, stress, and fear are predicted to set in and become more dominant and widespread leading to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We must look at the early Church to see how they prevailed over the pressure. Think of Paul and Silas in the Philippi dungeon. At midnight, the darkest moments, they switched on the glorious light of worship and praise, and by so doing they broke through to the bright morning. The answer to stress and life’s pressure is in the Bible. The Spirit of Christ is in us and with us and ready to relieve and soothe the pressure of life.
