How not to live defeated lives anymore

Dec 11, 16 How not to live defeated lives anymore

Many of us lead defeated lives as Christians

But do you know that God meant for us to live in liberty, victorious and not bound to sin? 
We cannot overcome it with our strength, as the war is a supernatural one. 
The lies that Satan make you believe that you are powerless, that blind your heart to the goodness of the Lord’s blessings… to steal the blessings and His will for you –  away from your life. 

So how can we lead victorious lives and walk with His way  in our everyday lives?

=============================

that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened;

 that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints (Ephesians 1:17 – 1:18 NKJV)
and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power (Ephesians 1:19 NKJV)

How can we become spiritually healthy?

1) through prayer 

When men work, they work. 

When men pray, God works.
2) through consistent and diligent study of God’s Word

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15 NKJV)
3) through worship and praise to the Lord
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. (Psalms 150:6)
4) Through active involvement in the body of Christ 
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, (Ephesians 3:20 NKJV)
Faith without works, is dead. Let us commit our talents to build the church, to serve as we are called.

Amen.

Faith without works is dead

    good works have no connection whatsoever with salvation. This view teaches that since we are saved by grace through faith alone, a person may believe in Christ as Savior, but there may not be a life of good works to follow. A person may pray the sinner’s prayer and profess to believe in Jesus as his Savior. Later he may profess to be an atheist and live in gross sin, but he will be in heaven because he made a decision to receive Christ.
    (compare Rom. 3:24, 28; James 2:18-26) Paul was attacking the Pharisaic idea that our good works will commend us to God. He argues that no one can ever be good enough to earn salvation. God justifies guilty sinners through faith in Christ alone. But James was attacking the view that saving faith does not necessarily result in good works. He shows that genuine faith always produces good works.
