Satan attacks when we are tired from trying to keep up the pace of making a living, taking care of kids or aging parents. He tempts and discourages us in hopes that we will give up. Stress and anxiety wears on our nerves and causes us to be fatigued, frustrated, and angry. Even worse he tries to make us feel like a failure.

Anger is a legitimate emotion and can be channeled positively. It can galvanize people into action. Bono (from U2) was so incensed by the terrible plight of the African nations that he, together with Warren Buffet and Bill Gates, has poured mega money into fighting disease and lessening the plight of countless people.
If we believe and confess that God's plans are to prosper us; to give us hope and a future why do we worry about the future so much? You, like myself, constantly hears the fear spoken from the mouths of Americans every day.
