“Let’s Give the Devil a Really Bad Day”

Perry was on his way to the studio today when Satan shot a piercing arrow of accusation at him about one of his past sins. And then it occurred to him, “Oh the enemy’s opposing me cause I’ll be talking about the 1500 people groups in the world that still don’t have the gospel.” The enemy loathes the idea of these peoples being reached.

Mike Latsko of FrontiersUSA says, “Let’s give the devil a really bad day by reaching these people groups!” Mike shares the grief he feels about people like you who don’t have a chance to worship Jesus because no one’s brought the gospel to them. The 1500 include Muslims, Buddhists, Hindu, and tribal peoples.

One of the obstacles to reaching these 1500 is that we’re not sending anybody to them. Why?? Another obstacle is that all the easy places in the world have been reached. What’s left are the hardest places!

Another obstacle: We’re in a war. Satan and his minions have been doing all they can for 2000 years to keep these peoples from being reached. Then, God is doing something unprecedented in 2024. The gospel is spreading virally among previously unreached peoples. What if leaders in these movements could go to the 1500?

Last, the gospel has not reached every person and place on the planet. But it will happen: “The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea!” (Hab. 2:14). Be part of reaching the 1500 by downloading the Priority 100 prayer app, daily prayer points for the 100 people and places in the world with least access to the gospel.

Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
