This morning led us to several verses to look up. Basically, today we have been learning that satan is alive, active and the father of all lies; he is very subtle and deceptive in his tactics to lure us into sin. ON GUARD-hold that shield up!
2 Corinthians 11:14 - Satan disguises himself as an angel of light! Be on Guard!
One of the things that was an eye opener to me is, the fact that it is not just
"satan" singular word that we wrestle and fight against, it is "satan and his demons"plural word - demons!
If we wrestle against so many evil forces/devils, it only goes to show us how much more we need the Word of God and the Holy Spirit of God to empower and strengthen us to be able to stand against "all of them" and live a victorious and happy life.
Satan knows he can't destroy us, so he does his best to make our time on earth unproductive and to suffocate us with fear, anxiety, depression, worry, lack, sickness, discouragement, grief, etc.
End of story... we win! He has been disarmed, overruled, rendered powerless in all his hard works .. 1 John 3:8(b) The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.
Page 21 in our workbook reveals all the various names of satan and how he works through them, check them out.
Thankful to share the Word of God.
What takes place on the INSIDE of my Shield of Faith when I hold it up “AGAINST SATAN”? I HAVE:
PEACE, WISDOM, GRACE
SELF CONTROL, LOVE, HEALTH/HEALING PATIENCE, JOY- THANK YOU JESUS!!!
Ephesians 6:16: hold up the shield of faith
to stop the fiery arrows
of the devil.

TIME TO DISCUSS:
Why do you think Paul chose to associate salvation with this particular piece of armor (Helmet of Salvation)?
In what sense do you think our salvation can act as a protective measure for our mind?
Read Ephesians 1:10-12 – Discuss phrases that stand out to you. According to this verse: What have we received? How did we come to be recipients of it?
How have your emotional health and behavior choices reflected any patterns of defective thinking that the enemy has suggested and that you have perpetrated?
What adjectives would you use to describe how a soldier would feel going into battle without a helmet?
Romans 12:2 fill in blanks on page 166 in work book together.
Day #1 So Great a Salvation:
Day #2 The Inheritance:
Day #3 The Benefits Package:
Ø When Paul instructed us to “take every thought captive” he employed a tone that expresses “continuous” ongoing action. So we must understand that being successful at this endeavor will be a “LIFESTYLE”, NOT a one-time event.
Ø Taking thoughts captive means controlling them instead of them controlling you.
Day #4 Mistaken Identity:
