TEXT: 2CORINTHIANS 10:3-6
INTRODUCTION: In our study last week, we discussed the sources of satanic or evil powers and the possible manifestations of demonic attack in man. Today, we shall examine the weapons God has made available to us for overcoming evil powers. His love for us is demonstrated in the various weapons he has placed at our disposal in spiritual warfare. Victory in the spiritual realm assures us of victory in the physical.
In Christ Jesus, we have been declared victorious over the forces of darkness. We have overcome the world because of the greater one that dwells in us. We must remain conscious of the fact that the battles we face are principally spiritual and not carnal.
We should thus be ready to deploy the weapons of prayers, the name of Jesus, praise and worship, faith and His word.
May this study bring to our remembrance the truth that we have been declared victorious even before the battle begins.
