Romans 8:31-39ESV

New Lens: Cosmic Battle

WE are in a battle. Between good and evil. Our enemy is not flesh and blood.

Powers and Spiritual Forces tend to get a foothold on our soul by influencing or oppressing our mindset.

The Evil One’s goal is not demonic possession, it’s demonic distraction.

Set Your Mind on Things of The Spirit/BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

I humbly acknowledge my utter powerlessness over ________.

I surrender this to You and let it go.

I am choosing to forgive myself

Patience. Surrender includes an increase in patience because you now trust in God’s will and His timing. You are willing to “wait upon the Lord” (see Isaiah 40:31).

Romans 8:26–28 ESV

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

• Pretend for a moment you were God. If you couldn’t use hell as described in the Bible, what would you do to carry out justice? [This question is designed to get people to wrestle with the common criticism that God should NOT send people to hell—any other option is fraught with greater difficulties than the biblical view of hell.]

• If you were a demon, what would you do to destroy you? Have you ever experienced that?

• If you were an angel, what would you do to protect you? Have you ever experienced that?
