Podcast #125: “Run Devil Run” by Crowder

Suiting up for Battle in Ephesians 6

I’m sick and tired of being a prisoner of war. I’m ready to send my enemy running for the hills, aren’t you? Crowder, in his new song “Run Devil Run,” inspired me to create a strategy against the devil. It’s all laid out for us in Scripture.

Ephesians-6-11-square

It’s time to get serious about our strategy against a very real enemy. Are you ready?

On this episode I discuss:

  • Story behind the song “Run Devil Run” – YouTube Video
  • The enemy has a strategy – Ephesians 6:11
  • The main weapon of the devil is the LIE
  • Department of Defense Strategy for Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction
  • Our formidable foe – Ephesians 6:12
  • Our strategy to fight the enemy
    • Prepare
    • Prevent acquisition
    • Contain and reduce threats
    • Respond to crises
  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – our Bible Interaction Tool Exercises this week are:
    • Slow down
    • Read in various translations
    • Repetition
  • We are soldiers of Christ – see Episode 104

This Week’s Challenge

Be a good soldier this week. Spend some time preparing by studying a common battle plan of the enemy in Genesis 3. Prevent acquisition by filling your heart and mind with the truth of God’s Word on a consistent basis. Contain and reduce threats by daily (even many times a day) putting on and securing the armor of God found in Ephesians 6. Respond to crises with flexibility, maintaining situational awareness and working with fellow believers. Don’t hide. Don’t blame. Know truth. Don’t give up.
