under attack

       I shouldn't be surprised. But I am. I am always amazed at how Satan uses some of the nicest people to thwart activity that is aimed at furthering the Kingdom of God.
      God calls. People respond, working through the power of the Holy Spirit, and suddenly, just like in the Garden, Satan makes an appearance, and asks some 'innocent' questions - questions designed to stir up doubt, designed to throw up roadblocks.  God didn't really say that, did he? You don't think God meant it that way do you? Do you really think that God would do that, after all He loves you.
   In case you've forgotten, let me remind you. Satan does not have your best interests at heart. His questions are not designed to help you better understand God, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit. His questions are designed to distract us from the mission that God has called us to. He wants to slow or stop anything that will bring glory to God, slow or stop anything that furthers the Kingdom.
    Lately I've seen things starting to change, change for the better, change that allows more people to be reached for God and His Kingdom, and then there's Satan, sticking his nose in, agitating, causing trouble, and using God's people to slow things down.
    Prayers welcome!
