Be Ready For the Struggle


The countdown is on. Beginning in October, Vale will begin a GIANT sized ad blitz that will include 36 billboards over 6 months as well a several direct mail pieces. One thing I can guarantee is that Satan is absolutely unhappy about this. He’s going to fight it…Satan is incapable of sitting on the sidelines when people are directly working against his cause.

As exciting as this time is in the life of Vale, the reality is that it’s also going to be a time of struggle with the enemy. For all of us, that means we must be prepared. We must stand ready with the promises of God in our pocket.

Matt 16:18 says; “…upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” That’s a promise folks! God wins, Satan loses and that’s final, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have to suit up for battle. In the midst of all this excitement, remember the agenda of the enemy…be aware of his game plan and be prepared to stand against it. Get ready to watch God changes lives all over Bloomington/Normal!

  1. Dude! I’ll be praying for you guys… our fight is WAY tougher than any UFC match!!!!!

  2. …but you’re right – in the end, WE WIN!!

  3. Hey man, I’m psyched for what you guys are doing to spread the word so keep it up! I’ll be praying for you guys as you go into this season. Anyways thanks for the props on the graphics!

  4. You hit the nail on the head here…the battle is already starting as we kick off KidStuf. We have people getting hammered for time, we have people who were sick and had to miss practice, we have Kingdom Kids volunteers who are having various legit reasons for stepping down…it is starting and I think it is only going to get worse..

    Christine had a terrible nightmare last night about Satan being in our house and us not being safe..he is attacking us all, because we are “pissin’ him off” (thanks for the quote Brad Barbour) and wreckin’ his plans..we are getting ready to sack him like a Clemson defensive lineman on a Florida State quarterback… 😉

    But, we need God and we need prayers, because he is a very able foe and he knows where to hit us where it hurts worse…

    Please pray for our children’s ministry over the next few weeks as we prepare to rock the house…

  5. When Satan starts attcking then we know we are doing something that is going to change the lives of those around us…..
    I am excited and have been praying for the ad campaign. So many people in this town are lost and need Jesus.
