We also believe, and therefore we speak....

2 Corinthians 4: 13

 

Abundant life is God's will for every believer. This life is available to us by faith in God's Word. Satan is constantly trying to steal our inheritance. Jesus came to destroy the works of Satan, but it is up to the church to enforce his defeat. We must come against Satan the same way that Jesus did when He was on the earth. Jesus exercised authority over the devil with the spoken Word of God. He said, "It is written,". Ephesians 6:16 calls the Word of God, "the sword which the Spirit wields". It is our offensive weapon for spiritual warfare. Just as the Israelites had to drive out their enemies to realize their inheritance, so must New Covenant believers do the same. Don't be discouraged if you have had many difficulties come against you. Hold on to the Word of God. Let it become deeply rooted in your heart and it will cause you to rise above the storms of life. You will begin to experience the abundant life that Jesus promises. These lessons are designed to encourage you in your journey of faith.
