Running Partners – Week 2: Attack Plan
This week, we’re talking about what could take us off course or even ‘out of the race.’ We’re going to focus in on Satan’s attack plan for you. Read 1 Peter 5:6-9:
“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Be alert and of sober mind. 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 the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”
A wise person once asked me to consider Satan’s attack plan for me. If I was really effective doing what God called me to do, Satan’s going to come after me. So I had to put myself in Satan’s shoes and say, “If I was going to bring down Charles, here’s what I’d do… Going after him in these areas would destroy his trust in God, his family and the work he’s doing at Gateway.”
So here are three questions to process with your Running Partners:
1. What’s the attack plan Satan would put together to come after you at this stage in your life?
2. What specific steps are you taking to go on the offensive and be prepared for the attacks?
3. How can your RP’s help you be prepared?
