If God Gives You Influence…

If God gives you influence, the enemy gives you attention!

We shouldn’t be surprised when we see pastors and church leaders struggle. They are human—imperfect humans.

I have witnessed over the years—watching others and with my own experience—it’s often in the seasons where everything seems to be going so well when temptation is greatest.

Should we be surprised? I think not! We’ve been warned—and told how to respond.

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 1 Peter 5:8-9

Pray for a pastor or church leader today. And, drop them a quick note to let them know you did.
