Many people have a humanistic view of how life works. Even though Christians don't like this terminology, many of them function day by day with this same mentality. By only looking on the surface level, they don't recognize the spirit realm behind it all.
Humanists don't acknowledge God. As a whole, they're either agnostic or atheist-believing that everything in life has a natural, physical cause. It''s sad to say, but many Christians have this same attitude. They don't realize the spiritual dynamics behind what's happening in the physical realm.
We are in a spiritual battle. Every single day, there is a battle raging in the spirit realm for the heart of each individual person, society, and the world as a whole. God is trying to draw people toward Himself and righteousness. He's trying to influence people to live consistent with Him so that His blessings can manifest in their lives. At the same time, Satan is trying to steal their hearts away from God. In an all-out battle against the Lord and His Kingdom, the enemy is pouring all the trash and corruption he can into people's lives.
Most of us - even Christians- don't recognize the intense battle waging all around us each and every day. We don't know the spiritual significance of our choices, words and actions. We're functionally ignorant of how these things determine whether we're yielded to God and releasing His power and blessings into our lives or whether we're yielded to Satan and releasing sin and death into our lives. (Rom. 6:16).
The devil can't control you outside of your will. However, your lack of awareness and understanding of the battle only works to his advantage. if you choose believe God's Word and learn to recognize what's happening in the spirit realm, you can begin taking the proper action to improve your situation. You can cooperate with God to manifest His power and blessing.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7 However, your passiveness and lack of resistance doesn't mean that the battle isn't raging: it simply means that you are not winning. Satan is beating you in this area.
The revelation of God's Word contained in this book study has the potential to transform your life. As you begin to understand and exercise your authority as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, Satan will flee, and God's power and blessings will manifest in your life greater than ever before.
