The Law of the Spirit of Life

Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life has freed me in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and of death. (4) That the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the spirit.

Although we have the law of God outside of us demanding, the law of good in our mind agreeing with the law of God, and the law of sin in our body warring against and defeating the law of good, we must nevertheless praise the Lord that in our spirit is the law of the Spirit of life. No law can prevail against this law. Who can defeat the Spirit of life? Nobody and nothing can defeat the Spirit of life. This law of the Spirit of life is the spontaneous power of the Spirit of life. It is the most powerful law in the universe; it is in us and it sets us free. How does the law of the Spirit of life set us free? It frees us in a "super" way. If, according to the ancient method of warfare, some soldiers were surrounded by enemy troops, they would have had to fight their way through. However, in modern warfare there is no such need. If we are surrounded by the enemy, we need not fight through - we have a way up. We have an upward way. Thus, we may say to Satan, "Satan, compared to me you are powerful. But don't you know that I have a wonderful God who is both in my spirit and in the heavens? It may be difficult for me to go to the heavens, but it is easy for Him. Satan, you and your attacking army are under my feet, and I am free."
