If we want to triumph over negative situations and circumstances in life, we must be rooted and grounded in love. We cannot be contained when the love of God is operating in our lives.
Where there is no love, there is no power to win.

  1. What can separate us from the love of God? (Romans 8:35).
    1. Not even tribulation, distress, famine, nakedness, peril (a source of possible or imagined harm), or the sword can separate us from His love.
      1. When we are motivated to serve God for the wrong reasons, any attack from Satan will cause us to waver in our faith.
      2. Our primary motive for doing what we do for the Lord should be born out our unconditional love for Him.
    2. Jesus said if you love Him you will keep His commandments (John 14:21).
      1. His commandments are to love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love your neighbor as yourself(Matthew 22:37-39).
      2. God wants to manifest His love to us, and show us the authenticity of His love.
      3. We must develop our faith in His love.
  2. We can tear down Satan’s wall of containment by abiding and living in the love of God.
    1. We must also be aware of the areas in which the enemy attacks us so that we can avoid his devices.
      1. He attacks our relationships through negative emotions.
      2. Negative emotions are negative feelings on the inside that are designed to move us away from the will of God for our lives.
      3. Our primary focus in life should be to love God and others unconditionally, giving them the advantage instead of taking advantage of them.
