I need faith right now, attacked on all sides

Posted by spriggy on September 17, 2005, at 16:38:14

I can't help but think it's no coincidence that the week before our first church service, it seems we are being attacked in all sorts of ways;

1) my chronic fevers/achiness has returned with a vengence. My dr. wants to do a spinal tap on Wednesday.
2) My parent's have had yet another breakdown- my dad's drug usage, my mother's codependcy. I had to confront them for the first time in my life this week and set boundaries.
3) We are getting threatened by our former denomination/District that if we open this new church, they will perform "ethical ramifications." Whatever in the world that means! Apparently, because our last church has "split" and many of those former member's are planning on joining our new church, we are "unethical."


There is more but I'll leave it at that.

I think this is a spiritual attack- God has something good in store and He knows the ministry He has called us to. I think the enemy is working on bringing us "down" before God moves mightily.

Pray I will fight this battle in the spirit and not pick up the offense in the flesh!

This is so hard, and I just plain don't feel well.

Some churches can get very evil in their godly approach, especially when it comes to membership and money. If you feel attacked from every angle, perhaps you are, but it will pass. If you feel called of God He will sustain you. Keep trying. Don't give up. Will you be meeting tomorrow?

 

There's no ROFL about spiritual warfare. spriggy

I am so sorry you're not feeling well.

As I was praying just now--hands on the keyboard, my tears of sorrow turned to tears of joy; you are doing the Lord's work and it's so very exciting to see Him moving! I still get chills thinking about how everything came together for you with the new church.

I truly believe we can expect to be attacked by big guns; the more He trusts us, the bigger the guns against us. But He will prevail.

Please don't let their threats of "ethical ramifications" worry you too much; be honored they came up with a shiny, brand-new term just for you! They should concentrate more on the "spiritual ramifications" of getting in the way of the BIG GUY!

March onward, spriggy!

Dear Lord,
I pray that you keep Spriggy and her family strong. I pray for your divine protection on Spriggy and her family. Also, that no weapon formed against them will prosper. I also pray for perfect healing in Spriggy's body. Please change the hearts of the people who are fighting against them. I ask You this in the Mighty name of Jesus.
