This month I have had many Christian friends mention the fact that they are struggling … not in their faith, but that they feel a a strong sense of evil all around them.
In the book of 2 Thessalonians, Chapter 2, Paul is reminding us to remain strong in our faith and continue our work for the Lord until His coming when we will all be taken up to be with Him.
The month of October (really it seems like all the time right now) is filled with satanic presence. As Paul tells us, in Chapter 1, Verse 6-10:
“𝘎𝘰𝘥 𝘪𝘴 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵: 𝘏𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘱𝘢𝘺 𝘣𝘢𝘤𝘬 𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘨𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘧 𝘵𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘣𝘭𝘦𝘥, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘶𝘴 𝘢𝘴 𝘸𝘦𝘭𝘭.

𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘯𝘤𝘭𝘶𝘥𝘦𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶, 𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘢𝘶𝘴𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘣𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘥 𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘵𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘺 𝘵𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶."
Stand firm in your faith, pray daily and seek the Lord in all you do.
This will help you go through the troubled times with the strength from the Holy Spirit who lives in each of us as believers for Christ.
God bless you … know daily prayers are being said especially for those who are struggling right now.
