“Empowered to Conquer”  Lesson # 1

  “  The spiritual world around us “

Intro:  What is your favorite thing to do when you have a day off of school or work?



  1. Romans 8:37, John 3:3-5 When we accept Christ we are born again, we are born into a life of salvation and victory found only in Jesus which allows us to conquer everything in our way.
    1. Eph 6:12 We must understand that although we live in this physical world, we also live in a spiritual world where we are surrounded by good and evil, angels and demons.
      1. Heb 12:1-2  We live in a spiritual world where when we follow God we can feel the power and protection of the Holy Spirit and the angels who are sent by God to help us.
      2. 2 Cor 10:3-5  We also live in a world greatly influenced by the devil and the demons he sends to attack us, to discourage us, to pull us away from God, to stop us from winning others to Christ and to keep us from fulfilling Gods will for our lives.
    2. 2 Peter 5:8-9 We must understand that when we step out to do something great for God, we will face resistance, temptations, various other attacks, and there will be people the devil will use who will try and stop us.
  2. 2 Thess 3:3, Psalms 144:1 So because we live not only in a physical world, but also a spiritual world, then we must learn how to fight, be victorious, and conquer this spiritual battle!
    1. Zach 4:6  We must understand that the power for us to conquer everything that comes at us to try to stop us is not our power but it is the power of the Holy Spirit.
      1. Isaiah 2:22 Our strength is limited, our power is limited and we ourselves do not have the strength to overcome anything!
      2. Jeremiah 29:11-13 However when we follow God, his plan, and his will and yield to the Holy Spirit God will anoint us with his power to overcome everything that gets in our way and we will do great things for God that we could never do in our own strength.
    2. 1 Cor 15:57 In this new series we will be discussing how we can position ourselves to conquer everything the devil will throw at us, be filled with the Holy Spirit to have victory in this spiritual battle, and fulfill Gods will for us here in this world! #Borntoconquer
