The objectives of the devil keep us from living victorious lives and make us ineffective for the Kingdom
if possible, draw us away from the faith. We as believers need to know that the enemy has no more legal claim over our lives. However be aware of the enemy's tactics. Be vigilant.
The word 'flesh' is any ungodly desire that satiates the natural appetite of a man's body and soul. Don't put yourself in a place where your flesh gets the upper hand. Make no provision for the flesh to feed on you and starve you. Feed your spiritual appetite by strengthening your inner man. Walk in the presence of God.
Overcome means to conquer, to have victory over, to gain mastery over. Everyone who is Born of God, overcomes. Jesus, is our Model who had mastery over the world, the flesh and the devil.
God has also permitted us believers to journey through a world where we will face trials and tribulations (adverse situations). These could be caused by the devil, by the actions of other people or sometimes as a result of our own choices. The devil's attacks are an attempt to steal, kill or destroy what is ours.
However, God empowers us to overcome. Each victory we win puts us in a place of greater spiritual strength.
