Bible Focus Verse: You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows, (Psalm 23:5)

Summary: This episode looks at the opposition and spiritual warfare we can face when stepping into our God-given callings. It examines common fears like failure, rejection, inadequacy and how the enemy uses these to derail us. The host shares truths from Psalm 23 and practical strategies for countering the opposing forces and moving forward with confidence.

Key Points:

God has prepared a table of provision for us, even in the presence of enemies/opposition
Common opposing fears: failure, rejection, criticism, inadequacy
Truths to counter opposition: God’s presence, divine provision, peace, assurance of success, identity in Christ
Strategies: Stay grounded in Scripture, regular prayer, celebrate small wins, set boundaries, seek community

Takeaway: Don’t allow fear, doubt or the enemy’s tactics to take a seat at the table God has prepared for you. Remain focused on God’s assurances as you boldly move into your calling.

Call to Action: Reflect on areas you’re giving the enemy a foothold. Take practical steps to reclaim your space and God’s peace/confidence.

”And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!”“
