The Christian life is a wartime life. Spiritual battles are waged every day, all around us, whether we live and minister in the land of our birth or in a new place that is unfamiliar and disorienting. As you venture into your new place, the reality of this war often becomes more evident. Now that you see it, will you take up your part in the battle and serve as faithfully and bravely as you can? Spiritual Warfare might be the course for you!

“There is a very real urgent need around us. We are in the middle of a spiritual war!” -Jim Stamberg
As children and parents alike enjoy this season of dress up and goodies, it is easy to relegate the spiritual realm to child’s play. This past year held two examples of the varied, yet futile tactics of our enemy to prevent God’s Kingdom advances.

A member of our team saw God’s power confront and overcome the darkness. They had prayed with a woman who moved to town to live with her daughter. This woman was a new believer, and her daughter and boyfriend actively participated in the occult. Our teammate gave her the tools to pray over the house and stand firm in her position in Christ. This woman immediately experienced more peace in that home and her daughter’s anger toward her cooled a bit. This was not the end. After our teammate set their prayer network to fight on this woman’s behalf, God started to move. About month later this woman reported that the daughter threw out all the pagan articles, including the altar, stating “it no longer has the power it once did.” Wait, God is not done yet! While her daughter has not yet accepted Christ, this woman has been praying that God would open her daughter’s eyes to this pagan spiritual bondage. That young girl has started to visual see the demons which are behind her occult beliefs. Please pray that this young woman seeks refuge in the arms of her loving savior. {see update below!}

We often assume spiritual warfare is only found in these clear displays of combat. The next event, relayed by an intern, reminded us that our enemy is far more subtle most of the time.
