Spirit Wars (Part 5)
2 Cor 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. NKJV
I heard a statement several years ago in Bible college, “To be forewarned is to be forearmed.” I have found this statement to be true. Having a healthy understanding (not fear motivated or fear based) of our enemy is a must if we are going to live the victorious life that Jesus died for us to have. In this series, we will talk about who Satan is but mostly we will end up focusing on how he tries to operate in our day to day lives.
Part 5 – Today we look at the day to day battle we engage in with our thoughts. Jesus temptation in the wilderness gives us the blueprint on how to respond to the devil and his dysfunctional thoughts. Take every thought captive!
