ReflectionsOfGrace_thumbnail

[display_podcast] We have an enemy. He is not happy when we are involved in changing lives for the Kingdom of God.   He is hoping we will forget and succumb to him, but we know that “Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.”   Satan roams around like a lion “seeking whom he may devour”... notice it says “seeking”… not all of us have our heads in the sand.
