A Renewed Belief In Spiritual Warfare

'Renewed belief' is probably the wrong wording. It's not like I used to believe in spiritual warfare and then didn't and now do again. Rather, I think because so much of my early exposure to, and growth in my faith was in a setting that overused the term (everything was spiritual warfare...failed a test, spiritual warfare! Stubbed your toe...spiritual warfare!)I backed off of it for a while. So, I don't think I'm experiencing a renewed belief in spiritual warfare, but maybe just going through a season that has served as a reminder to me that there is an enemy who is hard at work trying to mess up people's lives and kingdom stuff. In the past two days, in my little corner of the world, I've experienced the announcement of a moral failure of a fellow youth worker, the discovery that a friend of mine is involved in some seriously stupid lifestyle choices, hearing stories from a friend who returned from an Aids infected region in Africa, seeing numerous good, hard-working friends get laid off and getting a phone call that one of my wife's closest family members is gravely ill.

I'm no theologian and nobody has every accused me of being a deep thinker, so I'm not likely to try to wrestle this one to the ground. I know stuff happens, I know God's in control, I know the Devil isn't to blame for everything.

My favorite verse is John 10:10. "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
I almost always focus on the second part of the verse, the fact that Christ offers life in the fullest.

The past couple days have been a reminder that the power of the second part of the verse is best understood in light of the first part.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
