Advancing the Gospel

I couldn’t help but laugh this morning as I reflected on some ways the devil is trying to steal and destroy the work that God is doing among Connecting Streams.

Who does he think he is that he could go up against God?

I’ve been asking you and others to be praying for a variety of things, but specifically one prayer request has been for favour among the places that we serve and an openness to the gospel.

Just yesterday during the prayer time for Connecting Streams at the House of Prayer Edmonton, this was once again covered in prayer.

The Devil is so obvious sometimes in his work, as it is clear that he is trying so hard to work in the opposite force of these prayers.

As Paul said in Philippians 1:12-14 “Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. Because of my chains, most of the brothers in the Lord have been encouraged to speak the word of God more courageously and fearlessly.”

As we face opposition, let’s pray that much more fervently for the Lord’s work in our midst and that all our volunteers may speak the word of God more courageously and fearlessly.
