Spiritual Warfare and Books

After prayer and getting advice, my wife and I recently decided to establish a 501(c)3 organization called Catalyst France for the purpose of planting life-giving churches in France that will not only reach the lost but shape culture.

Following this decision we immediately sensed confirmation through the support of others. We needed it because this has to be one of the biggest steps of faith that we have taken and confirmation was very important, especially for me.

Unfortunately, you have probably heard it said, "new level, new devil." This week has got to be one of the most difficult weeks I have faced. When you begin a new venture there is always an enormous amount of work to be done. But when you add to that other issues you must deal with, some that are completely outside of your control, it can be over-whelming. I guess this is spiritual warfare. It's not fun and it's not supposed to be. It is an attack. But it is also preparation for greater battles that lie ahead at the same time.

One day, this will be the stuff that books are made of but for now I just have to get on my knees and get in the game.
