**WHEN ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE**
I want to share something with you that many of you seasoned Christians are aware of. However, for my friends who are less seasoned. I want to encourage you with this. ANYTIME, we step out in faith and do something that leads others closer to Jesus, whether it is a Bible Study, a video, music, or even just hopeful messages. Maybe your just stepping out and doing something God has asked you to do.
We become a threat to the enemy. You see, the devil does not care if we go to church, read our bibles, or claim to know Jesus. Even he believes. HOWEVER, he most certainly DOES care when we start bringing other people along. After all, that’s what we are here for. To lead others to Christ. So we will be attacked. Whether physically (aka, illness) financial, or relational (fight with family etc)
These are just examples. Sometimes in ALL areas at the same time. Because naturally, most people will begin to withdraw themselves from others, they will become depressed or tired. They become inward focused. Not that they are selfish, but they are just more concerned with what is going on in their worlds, to focus on anything else. This is why we must fight back, but not in the natural. We must fight in the spirit.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12
Remember: he doesn’t attack you because you are weak. It is because he knows how strong you are! Rise up..FIGHT BACK!
“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1John 4:4
