The devil will not stop at anything to execute his mission to steal, to kill, and to destroy – even in church. The following are three ways the devil attacks people in church:
1. He makes the things of God look foolish: You are about to lose a major participation of God in your life when you are seeing a divine instruction as foolish in the presence of God. Just imagine if the man of God says, “Everyone, take 7 steps forward into your divine inheritance” and you think within yourself, “This is a gimmick”, you will lose any divine operation that comes with such an instruction.
2. He makes the things of the devil look ordinary: The devil knows his job and he goes about it 24 hours a day and every day of the week but many Christians do not know their job. When the devil wants to infiltrate the life of Christians, he makes them de-emphasize the assaults of the enemy in their lives.
3. He makes you take the word of God as the word of man: When you understand that this is my pastor/prophet ministering under the influence of the Holy Spirit’s anointing, the words he speaks become God’s direct instructions to you. When your prophet says “The Lord told me…” don’t take those words with levity because the devil wants you to see the man and not the Lord speaking through him.
PRAYER: Lord, deliver me from every assault of the enemy to hinder me from receiving God’s provision for me. I will not fall victim of satanic operations in the day of my visitation in Jesus’ name. Amen.
