This bible study series is helpful if you have ever been unsure which way to go on an important decision, or if you have ever been unsure about whether you are being ‘nudged’ by something of your enemy or something of your Savior.
Here are the broadcasts for this series:
Part One focuses on the characteristics of Satan and how he operates. He seeks to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). Understanding this helps me know when I am willingly or unwillingly aligning with his plan.
Part Two reminds us Satan is a liar and the father of all lies (John 8:44). He is the Accuser, and all his accusations are lies. When Satan accuses he wants to create despair, defeat and depresssion. On the contrary, when God convicts He intends to deliver you from what He is convicting in you.
Part Three teaches us that the closer we are to God the more we are aware of our sin, and that’s as it should be. Because God wants to convict, allow us to repent, and bring us restoration. Some great examples of this from scripture in this segment: Luke 7:36-50, Luke 19:1-10, Mark 5:1-20
Part Four: “We must embrace the affliction, the conviction. Only then can we fully understand our debt to Jesus and live out the gratitude that comes when the debt is expunged.” Luke 7:41-42 is pivotal in this understanding. Only a God who loves us so much would invest Himself in our correction and restoration.
