Christian Podcasts have helped shape my desire to know God in more ways than one. I find it refreshing to hear conversations and encouragement from others who are living their life with the aims to glorify God.
They are convenient ways to hear biblical exhortation and biblical wisdom amidst day-to-day life.
Justification and sanctification encompass not only what we believe, but explain, in an overarching manner, our beliefs and how we ought to live. So, hunker down with me for a bit, and let’s allow the Holy Spirit to boldly teach us.
Today I wanted to share with you the transcript of Pastor Faith Bosmans’ sermon she gave recently. With her permission, I am so honored to share her words with you here. Spiritual warfare has been plaguing my life recently, and I am ever-voraciously learning about how to use God’s Word and my status as a redeemed by Jesus, daughter of God, Spirit-filled Christian to combat the lies of the Enemy. And I deeply yearn for you to learn, too!
Only when I allowed the Holy Spirit to speak to my heart and empower me, could I see the fight within my mind and the physical feelings of captivity for what it was; a lie from the pit of hell. I hadn’t put on the armor of God to fight. In fact, recall, I refused to even pray.
If these lies sting when you read them, then I bet you have felt them, too. Felt them within the very deep parts of your being. Felt them, have heard them, and feel like you are powerless against them.
I’m learning that we have to battle these lies with God’s Truth. We have to battle the Devil’s whisperings with God’s proclamations. We have to battle these thoughts with God’s thoughts. We have to know who we are in Jesus.
