Jesus answered, “It is written …” (Luke 4:4, 8, and 12)
I was recently offered a ministry. Totally unexpected. Totally worthwhile. Totally out of my comfort zone. But God often does that, right. He wants us to spread our wings, share His goodness, experience new realms of His glory. And I’ve been pleading with Him to use me in whatever capacity that pleases Him.
So what’s the problem? Why didn’t I immediately jump at the opportunity? It’s an answer to prayer, right?
Here’s the thing:
Satan knows how much I want to be used by God. The enemy also knows how to sidetrack all of us from our calling. One of the diversions he uses to lure us away from God’s intended work is to offer another form of good work.
Next week, we’ll take a look at the fear factor. Is fear a spiritual weapon used by God or the enemy? Prepare by studying Psalm 27.
See you in a twinkling,
