Better (2) - Surrendering

We’re going to talk about identifying those different areas in our lives where we feel like we need to control everything, and we’re going to choose better, surrendering completely to the Lord. I believe this is very important, because whenever we’re trying to control something that’s not ours to control it’s really a reflection of our spiritual condition. In other words, what we’re trying to do in this particular area of our life is that we’re trying to be like God. It’s saying that I need to be in control because I know what’s better, I know what’s good for me, I know what’s best, and therefore I can do this better than God.

Better (1) - One Day With God

We’re going to be looking at making better choices recognizing that the decisions we make today will determine who we become and what we’re able to do tomorrow. And so, when life hands you choices, you want to choose better. But the problem is that so many of us are pursuing the good life. And what I mean is that we think that we’ll be happy if we have nice things, if we’re living a life of convenience, if we’re having lots of fun, and the reality is that many of us have settled for the good life when God has something so much better for us.

Erased (4) - The Angels

We are looking at our greatest allies in the spirit realm, spiritual beings, known as angels. This is an incredibly important subject as we’ve been understanding according to the Word of God that there’s so much more than what we see; that’s outside of the physical world that we can touch and see. There’s a whole other realm of reality called the spiritual world.

Erased (3) - The Believer's Spiritual Battle

There’s a very real spiritual battle going on right now between the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness. What you see with your eyes is not all there is and it’s for that reason that the Bible warns us to, “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Because you’ve chosen to love and serve Jesus Christ, you’ve set yourself in opposition to the enemy, the adversary, Satan; who wants to withstand every good thing that God has set out to do in our lives. And so, in the final verses of this letter, Paul warns us, making us aware that there is a spiritual world and that believers are in a very real sense in a Spiritual Battle. Keep watching and praying. This is the secret of victory over the world, the flesh, and the devil; and so we want to keep on praying, we want to stick to it and never quit. The early believers prayed this way, and in the same way, we want to keep on praying until the Spirit stops us or the Father answers us.

Erased (2) - The Dark Side

The truth is that every day there’s a spiritual battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil. Today, you and I worship the God of light and yet Satan is the ruler of darkness. Our God is truth, but Satan is called the father of lies. Jesus came that we may have life and have it to the full, but Satan came to steal, kill, and destroy. And so, the Bible clearly teaches us that, “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).
