Are you called to a position of involvement or leadership in some ministry of the Church?  If so, then know this: satan opposes every little thing that God does, and he will not fail to oppose you.  You will be tested as never before, and it won’t stop.

[King] Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the gold image which I have set up? Now if you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, and you fall down and worship the image which I have made, good! But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?”
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”
(a portion of the Old Testament reading for today, Daniel 3:14-18)

Though satan sometimes rests from his assault, he never gives up.
When he has you beaten down and discouraged … will you give up?
