Nothing of eternal value that is attempted for God will go unchallenged and rarely the enemy will leave any tactic unexplored in order to disrupt the work. But God’s people in every age have faced these problems and with His help overcame them. Four common tactics that cause setbacks and standstills: 1) Deceit - retarded efforts and compromised faith. 2) Discouragement and Fear - de-motivation and inaction. 3) Disorder - misunderstanding, division and lack of productivity. 4) Discredit - character assassination. The enemy did not succeed. He just delayed the work, he did not defeat it. Hence you can take the risk to try again.
