Robert Morris: Satan Attacked Me on the Anniversary of My Health Crisis
On April 8, 2018, Robert Morris had to be airlifted to the hospital for emergency treatment after he passed out following complications with an earlier surgery. His time in the hospital was then lengthened as a result of multiple surgeries and life-threatening infections. A little over a year later, Morris reflected on the experience from the pulpit. He says that Satan attacked him with fear on the one-year anniversary of the airlift, as well as on two other dates.
"Satan started lying to me, saying, 'I can get you any time I want. I can get you any time I want,'" Morris says. "So I went to the Lord and I said, 'Lord, you've got to help me. You've got to give me a word. You've got to speak to me, because it's like, you know, all this fear is coming on me.'"
He says he was encouraged later by 2 Timothy 4:17-18, which says, "But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that through me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear. And I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. The Lord will deliver me from every evil work and will preserve me for His heavenly kingdom, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen."
"I remembered what the Lord said to me in that helicopter: 'I'm not finished with you yet,'" Morris says. "I read that scripture and the Lord said, 'Listen, Son. You've going to preach fully the message that I've given you, and you don't need to be afraid of the enemy.'"
