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.
