Strategy & Spiritual Warfare (Edited)

In this first section we will be discussing strategic thinking, and how it relates to your ministry. 

Let’s first look at our opposition. The enemy is actively working against your ministry. He has been prowling around like a lion looking for people to devour since the beginning of the human race. He knows more than you and I will ever know about human psychology, sociology, and the natural sciences. Any knowledge he needs to mount an effective assault on you and your ministry – he already has. And he isn’t just coming for you, he is coming for your church, your community, and your country. The downfall of the west into postmodernism is lead by the insidious lie that all things are good, and truth is whatever you want it to be. The devil is the father of lies like these. 

To be effective against an enemy as fearsome as the devil, we need a ministry master plan. 

Now this doesn’t mean that we don’t rely on God, have faith, or pray for victory and revival. It means that we can’t only do these things. Would we expect God to do all the work in a chess match, sports competition, or even a war? Of course not! We expect ourselves to get a strategic plan in place, then to execute the plan – better than the enemy. Why don’t we think this way when it comes to ministry? 

This leads us to our next set of challenging core beliefs. Hope is not a strategy. Prayer is not a strategy. And faith is not a strategy.

“Well, that doesn’t sound Biblical,” you say. Hang in there, because in the next video we are going to define what strategy is, so that I can show you how Jesus was a grand strategist, and why you should be one too. 

I look forward to seeing you there.
