Jesus doesn't promise He'll deliver us from our stresses (Tribulation), He does, however, promise to use our suffering for good, and offers an eternal weight of glory in return for our sacrifice.
And to the Angel of the Church in Smyrna, write:
These things says the first and the last, who died and came to life
I know your tribulation (stresses) and poverty, but abudance
And the blasphemy of those who claim themselves to be Jews and are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan.
