Last Sunday night, a young non-Christian man asked me why a couple was suffering so much, going through many struggles, now that they were Christians.
If he was satisfied with the answer or not is uncertain. But what is certain is this: the closer we get to the truth, the more the Evil One, the father of lies, will assail us.
The stronger we grow in faith, the more he will work to tear us down.
The more powerful we become in the Spirit, the more he will tempt us in the flesh.
The more effective we become in bringing others to the light, the more he will attempt to surround us with darkness.
Let us never dismiss the presence of Satan where good advances. Let us call upon the ever-present God to save us and strengthen our hands.
