The saying “New Levels = New Devils” was a popular phrase that my first pastor used to say a lot and it is so very true. Satan doesn’t attack as hard those who are not doing anything for God because why would he want to arouse them from their ineffectiveness.
However, when you are making a difference for God, Satan will attack like crazy because he wants to discourage you and get you to quit. Honestly that’s where we are at right now. We just completed our highest attended month and quarter ever…people are having their lives changed by the power of God and people are continuing to come into a relationship with Jesus!
The good news/bad news is Satan is on the prowl. You wouldn’t believe some of the crap he is throwing at us. Just this week alone has been attack after attack like you could never possibly imagine…I’m talking 3 instances where we are literally talking about matters of life and death and then a barrage of other things as well.
So on the one hand I’m emotionally exhausted and would love your prayers. On the other hand, I’m jumping up and down on the inside for joy because I know Satan wouldn’t be working this hard if he weren’t really scared about what we’ve already done and what we can and will do in the future.
United and CFCOG…this is the adventure of a lifetime we are getting to participate in. Stop right now and thank God for the privilege of being able to participate in something so much bigger than ourselves. Then ask Him to draw you closer to Him because, “New Levels=New Devils”.
