Chapter 1
Paul marvels at such love and grace expressed in the life and sacrificial death of Jesus Christ which was God’s redemptive plan.

As part of our inheritance in Jesus Christ we have already been blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places.

We are created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

3. Dunamis Life
Dealing With Carnal Thought Systems

2 Corinthians 10:4 — the weapons we use in our fight are not the world’s weapons, but God’s powerful weapons with which to destroy strongholds.

We deal with the devil by dealing with the carnal thought systems, the strongholds, that protect the enemy. The pulling down of strongholds begins with repentance.

The energies we expend in keeping our sins secret are the actural “materials” of which a stronghold is made. The demon you are fighting is using your thoughts to protect his access to your life.

Into Action
Identify one stronhold that you are using to protect the government of satan in your life.

Write down two affirmations that will bind the enemy and loose the power of the Kingdom of Heaven over this stronghold.

4. The Deeper Life
Read, pray and meditate on the following:

5. Matthew Chapter 4 Answers1. Written

2. Repent

3. Follow Me

4. Immediately

5. Teaching, kingdom, healing
