‘In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.¬†For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’ (Romans 8:37-39)
It’s been a rough few weeks for our UK team. Illnesses, alarming family crises and inexplicable technical problems have combined to leave us reeling. It’s felt as if we’ve been under attack from all sorts of angles and, of course, that’s exactly what has been happening!
We know that our enemy, the devil, prowls around, looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). He hates the people of God and wants to destroy us and bring our plans to nothing. When we are involved in something like SCWA, which so clearly confronts dark and evil practices, it’s no surprise if we’re on the receiving end of a backlash from the enemy.
But the wonderful truth is that nothing – absolutely nothing – can separate us from the love of God, and nothing can stand in the way of his purposes.
So, we’re currently hard pressed, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We choose to hold tight to God, to persevere in prayer and to press on in the work we know he has called us to.
We’re sharing all this to encourage you to persevere too, when you feel under attack. We are ALL more than conquerors in Jesus. But we also want to underline just how important prayer is. It is a vital weapon in the armoury God gives us. Please stand with BCT by praying for us.
