The Enemy's Game: Where To Go
As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him.
1 Samuel 17:48 (NIV)
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
Genesis 50:20 (NIV)
And then He told them, 'Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.'
Mark 16:15 (NLT)
The Bible is filled with daring heroes: leaders who moved into fearful places:

Abraham walked a long path to Canaan, facing dangers and treacherous people.

Joseph walked in slavery to Egypt, facing thirteen years of captivity.

David ran to the fight with Goliath, facing a bully in the Name of God.

Jesus walked our earth as a Man of peace, facing enemies both seen and unseen.

Because facing our fears shows off our faith-- and as Jesus clearly demonstrated, faith beckons God's Own almighty power. It's an invitation He won't refuse.

When God's in the fight, the fight will be won.

If the devil intended to harm us by massive power of media, then 'God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives' (Genesis 50:20, NIV).

His saving saints?* God's airborne church: Actors, models and talent for Christ, Media's meccas of transmission are exactly where you ought to go.

You enter the labor of others, and the Lord reaps where He did not sow. Rising high in talent and beauty, you contend with the weapon of love.

Snuggled-uppity Christians tucked tight in comfy pews are yesterday's news. Fearlessly bold, high-flying Christians performing in truth is a glory story.

## The Enemy's Game: Where To Go (Part 6)

* Saints refers to believers. 'Saving saints' refers to God's use of believers to carry His Good News.

NOTE: This series is a republished edit of a 2015 devotion series called, 'The Enemy's Game.' You may see notes to 'Actors, Models & Talent for Christ.' If you're not a performer, don't be deterred. In truth, every disciple acts for Christ, models Christ and stewards His talents.

P.S. To read the other devotions in this series, please see the The Enemy's Game series.

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
