3:16 Plan - Week 25 - Day 2 - Year 3 - Acts 19

The battles of the spiritual life are never easy but can always be victorious when we ask God to fight for us!

Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word 

Acts 19:13 A group of Jews was traveling from town to town casting out evil spirits. They tried to use the name of the Lord Jesus in their incantation, saying, "I command you in the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, to come out!" 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a leading priest, were doing this. 15 But one time when they tried it, the evil spirit replied, "I know Jesus, and I know Paul, but who are you?"

Power for the Christ-follower comes only through Christ, His Word and His Holy Spirit.  When we attempt to do things in our own flesh and our own strength then we will find ourselves woefully ill equipped to fight the battles of the spiritual life.  Praise God, we don’t have to fight in our own strength! 

Yield

Lord, I will stand in faith as You fight the battles waged spiritually all around me.

Revelation

The enemy has power.  His power deceives, divides and ultimately destroys.  Your weapons against his warfare are not physical.  As you ask God to fight the battles around you then you are surrendering to His Holy Spirit.  He morph’s you into a spiritual warrior and brings victory to a life that would be left in utter defeat otherwise!
