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.
