Spiritual Warfare in Preaching

Facing spiritual warfare with prayer and humility.
Spiritual Warfare in Preaching

Available on:

Spiritual warfare is no stranger to preachers. In this episode, Matt Woodley and Kevin Miller explore how spiritual attack manifests itself, and how you can overcome it. They share stories of spiritual attacks in their own pastoral ministry, and how God overpowered the darkness with light. One tell tale sign of an attack is feeling crippling anxiety, or self-doubt. Kevin said "spiritual warfare is the battle between what Satan wants for my life, and what God wants."

Check out what was referenced on the podcast:

James 3:14 (ESV)
“But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.”

I Peter 5:8 (ESV)
"Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour."

Matt Woodley serves as the Editor for PreachingToday.com and the Pastor of Compassion Ministries at Church of the Resurrection in Wheaton, Illinois. He is also the author of God With Us: The Gospel of Matthew (IVP).
