Don't Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table

It's Time to Win the Battle of Your Mind...

In the Presence of Our Enemies

March 5, 2023 • Randy Hageman • Psalm 23, Romans 8:6, Philippians 4:8, Romans 12:2, Philippians 2:9–11

The sad truth is that this side of Heaven our lives will never be devoid of evil influences. But God has prepared a table in the presence of our enemies to help us live victoriously. But to do that, we need God’s help to change the way we think. We need truths that we can not only stand on, but that God can guide us and equip us and empower us to wield in our battle against the enemy, and we’ll explore those today!

God’s Invitation Always Stands

February 26, 2023 • Randy Hageman • 1 John 1:8–9, Ephesians 2:8–10, John 3:16–18, Psalm 23, Romans 5:6–9

No matter how careful we are, at least on occasion, Satan is going to sneak up to our table with God, and he will try to deceive us. When he uses tools such as guilt and shame, when he condemns us, it’s important to distinguish these from God’s legitimate voice that may need to speak into our lives, addressing real sin, but Who will never condemn the follower of Jesus. Today we’ll seek to discern where God speaks and where Satan attempts to deceive us. 

The Path to Victory

February 19, 2023 • Psalm 23, Philippians 2:12–13, 2 Corinthians 6:2, 1 John 3:1–3, 1 Corinthians 15:57

God wants us to win the battle for our minds. He has marked off the path that guides us in the victory that Jesus Christ gives. When we identify lies and replace them with Truth, we are freed to follow our Good Shepherd and enjoy the benefits of His way!

The Battle for Your Mind

February 12, 2023 • Josh Mouser • Psalm 23, 1 Peter 5:8–11, 2 Corinthians 10:3–5, Matthew 26:36–39

In the week’s message, we are using three passages of Scripture which will help identify which phase of the battle you are in. The enemy is constantly bombarding us with lies, deceptions, and negative thoughts which cause us to allow the enemy a seat at our table. Join us as we examine three commercials that will illustrate spiritual truths to help us win the battle for our mind. 

The Tactics of the Enemy

February 5, 2023 • Randy Hageman • Psalm 23, John 10:10–11, Romans 8:29–34, John 8:44, Philippians 4:11–13

Jesus said the Devil is a liar, and that is the most common weapon he uses against us. The problem is he’s very good at sneaking up to our table and spreading his lies. But Scripture helps us see these lies for what they are. As we start to recognize his lies, as we realize what he’s trying to do behind those lies, it becomes easier for us to deny them and claim God’s promises in the 23rd Psalm for us. 

The Table Before Us

January 29, 2023 • Randy Hageman • Psalm 23, John 10:10–11, John 8:44, Matthew 11:28, Ephesians 6:11–12

Life can often be hard; it can steer us in directions we never imagined; it can throw us off our game or distort how we see the life around us. God understands this, and through the 23rd Psalm we can begin to see all He offers us, including setting a table before us. But what does this mean, and why does this matter? Join us as we explore that today and in the coming week in our church-wide series.
