I don’t usually post whole sermons for God Gold messages because I like to keep things short for you, but today and next Wednesday on the next edition of “Mid-Week Mining,” I’m excited to share with you these messages from Pastor Levi Lusko called “Winning the War Within.”
I like to mix up my preaching styles to get different perspectives from teachers of God’s Word from different ages, like some of the older guys and then some of the new. I just so happened to stumble across this sermon while searching for something newer to listen to and MAN!!! I was hit right where it matters most! God really shook my heart with this message and thankfully my close friend Craig shared the second message with me that I’ll be sharing with you next week! I pray God will move through these messages in a major way in your life and move you closer alongside Him as He begins showing you how to win the war within!!!
Also, below the video I want to share with you the bulletin outline that was shared with this sermon so you can have notes to hold onto and work through! I found them through the Life Church’s website at https://www.life.church
I’m excited to share with you this resource and moving forward trying my best to give you every possible resource I can to strengthen your faith, encourage you, and move you forward closer in relationship to Christ!

The weapons I fight with are not the weapons the world uses. In
fact, it is just the opposite. My weapons have the power of God to destroy
the camps of the enemy.
I destroy every claim and every reason that keeps
people from knowing God. I keep every thought under control in order to
make it obey Christ.
