Don’t Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table – Louie Giglio
2022 LENT STUDY – SIGN UP STARTING FEBRUARY 16TH
Class sign ups and all six session descriptions and videos are all available for you to download below.
Session 1: The Table Before Us
You are in a spiritual battle, and the enemy is trying to wedge his seeds of doubt, fear, anger, and distrust into your consciousness. He is trying to get a seat at the “table” of your mind so he can lead you down paths he wants you to travel on. The good news is that you don’t have to go there. You can win this battle. But first, you have to recognize what you’re up against.
Session 2: The Tactics of the Enemy
The devil’s goals are always the same. He wants to get inside your head so he can plant harmful thoughts within you. He wants to kill your relationship with God. He wants to cause division between you and the people who care for you. It is up to you to keep him from sitting at your table. You have the power to exercise faith to defy the devil’s whisper.
Session 3: The Battle of Our Mind
Even if the enemy has taken a seat at our table, we need to recognize the “game” is not over. It is time to make the course corrections necessary for us to secure the victory that Jesus has already won on our behalf. Once we understand this truth, we can start to change our “game plan” to counter the strategies the enemy is using against us.
Session 4: The Path to Victory
Winning the battle for your mind requires you to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ. When a thought is obedient to Christ, it either aligns with Him or is rejected by Him and by God’s teaching found in Scripture. If a thought is not taken captive by you in Jesus’ name, that thought will take you captive.
Session 5: God’s Invitation Always Stands
The enemy wants to define you by your scars. But Jesus wants to define you by His scars. Grace not only cancels guilt and shame—grace also redefines you. You are a beloved family member of God, and because of that you are given a seat at the table with Almighty God. You are a beneficiary of the lavish love of God, which has changed you from failure to family.
Session 6: In the Presence of Our Enemies
You can win the battle for your mind. Jesus prepares a table for you in the presence of your enemies. There’s nothing to worry about; your head is dripping with anointing, your cup overflows with abundance, and goodness and mercy are following you all the days of your life. The Good Shepherd is sitting at your table. It’s a meal for the two of you.
