Preparing for Spiritual Attack in Ministry
Many new writers and speakers are caught off guard by the spiritual gloom or added temptation, which often proceed or follow a writing/speaking project. By casting words of light and truth into the darkness, we also throw rocks at the enemy’s hornet nest--and Satan doesn’t fight fair! He will go after anyone we love to bring us down. Yet God has not given us a spirit of fear. Come develop a step-by-step plan for protecting against and overcoming spiritual attack in ministry.
• Identify indicators of past spiritual attack, correlating with speaking/writing
• Define the unseen spiritual battle—God’s goals vs. Satan’s
• Develop an offensive plan (physically, spiritually, emotionally) for times of intense ministry
• Create a defensive strategy for times of attack—how to fight back
