Spiritual Attack

Five Times You Can Expect Spiritual Attack

1. When you're growing spiritually

2. When you're invading enemy territory

3. When you're exposing the enemy

4. When you're breaking with the world

5. When you're being prepared for God's blessings

--Adapted from the Invisible War by Chip Ingram

This post is going to be short and sweet, as I'm pretty tired. It's been quite the interesting week at our house, equipped with a early morning visit to the ER, new infection battles and some small glitches in our mandate to go missional. The few months worth of stuff...I truly attribute it to a spiritual attack. I'm finding through this though, that you truly do find out what you are made of , what's driving you and where your feet are firmly planted. I am tending to come out of it stronger, more driven to do God's work and with a better sense of clarity and discernment.

All the attacks in the world will not stop me from doing God's kingdom work, because I am His and He who is in me is GREATER than he who is in the world!

Thank you for sharing this. I hadn't seen it written before, but whenever I am in high-stress times or when 1000 things go wrong all at once, I tend to think along these lines... that it's a Spiritual Attack.

I praise God for your strength and faith in Him. I also pray your trials are soon over.

You have wonderful words of encouragement. I will be praying for you and your family.
