GROWING DEEPER IN REFLECTION
1. How did God speak to you through today’s message? How will you now apply this into your life?
2. Do you recognize any of the Enemy’s footholds or strongholds in your life? How do you think the devil may have been granted this access? 1 John 1:9 reads, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” Spend time with God to confess and repent in these areas. May you be empowered through Christ by the Holy Spirit to be delivered and free in these areas.
3. We are given the charge to place the FULL ARMOR of God upon us. Is there an area you are currently spiritually unprotected?
4. Based on previous areas of temptation and attacks from the Devil, how will you now STAND FIRM against them?
