The Spiritual Blessings – 21
It is up to us believers to tell the rulers of the air about the wisdom of God! What a mind-blowing responsibility! How sad the Lord must be when we fail to use it. I am not sure I have ever heard a message given on that subject.
He did this so that now, through the church, he could let the rulers and authorities in heaven know his infinite wisdom. This was God’s plan for all of history which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.
Did you know that it is up to us believers to tell the rulers of the air about the wisdom of God? What a mind-blowing responsibility! I don’t think I have ever heard a message given on that subject. Have you?
When Jesus rose from the dead He overcame satan and ALL his angels, and now He sits in Heaven asking us to remind satan that he has no power. What authority the church has in its hands! How sad the Lord must be when we don’t use it. Let’s change that.
But we must never think that we have that authority in ourselves. Jesus’ obedience in going to His death for our sakes gained us that authority. It gained life for us. A life of victory over everything that satan might throw at us. God’s plan was accomplished in Jesus and we get to be a part of the victory parade and to participate in the spoils of war.
How amazing and exciting!
What do you think Paul means when he speaks of “his infinite wisdom”? (Ephesians 3:10)
Ask Him to introduce you to others who understand this verse and will pray with you to overcome the enemy at work in your area. Do not attempt to do warfare of that sort alone. Jesus sent His disciples out two by two, never alone.
Thank Him for the blessings of Spiritual Victory gained by Jesus and available to us.
Dare to ask Father God which areas He would like to you to take on as a project.
