What to do when the enemy attacks
February 21, 2013
…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus…
When my boys were playing little league baseball years ago, one of the things we had to teach them was to run, not watch the ball, when they got a hit. Because when they would get a hit, they would sometimes just stand there, watch the ball, and watch the fielder throw them out at first.
But we finally taught them to hit the ball and run like the wind without worrying about what the fielders were doing. “But Dad,” one of them asked, “how will I know if it’s okay to go to second?” “Well,” I told him, “you have to trust your first and third base coaches to tell you what to do.”
Many believers live their lives focusing on the opposition… playing defense in life rather than offense. But God wants us to run to win! And when the devil comes up against us and accuses and condemns us, we focus on Christ and trust Him to tell us what to do!
Our victory is in Christ. And if we run the race focused on His leading and direction, we’ll never be overcome by the enemy no matter how hard he schemes against us. Keep your eyes on Jesus. He’ll never lead you astray and will always protect you from any of the enemy’s attacks!
FOCUS ON CHRIST, NOT THE ENEMY’S SCHEMES, AND YOU’LL BE VICTORIOUS EVERY TIME!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
