As I look around at everything that is going on in the world I am noticing that the difficulties for most all are mounting. Causing stress and sleeplessness. Causing short tempers and unhappiness. Potentially triggering old habits. Destructive thoughts. Destructive habits. It’s times like this that we need to make sure that armor is on and well fitting and that we stay vigilant and focused on the true battles that are waging !
In Ephesians the armor of God is described and although this may seem like a not so easy task – I can only speak for myself – the longer the armor is worn the more knowledge that comes … the armor is light and fierce! Ephesians 6:10 says to be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power (oh yes it is !) Put on the full armor of God so you can take your stand against the schemes of the Devil!
In 1 Peter 5 verse 8 we are warned about the enemy prowling around like a roaring lion! Oh yes he is! And I do mean prowling and growling and every little thing that can be used to weaken you will be tested. Your thoughts. Your life. Your sight. Your body. Your mind. Every. Thing. You. Can. Imagine. And his goal is to weaken and destroy you in the worst way you can’t even imagine and everything you love too!
Here’s the verse! Listen up and remember this carry it in your hearts people!
“Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
I pray that you read about the armor of God in Ephesians and that you wear it. Learn it. Wear it. Apply it and I pray for protection from the enemy both yours and mine!
In Jesus name!
Amen – so be it
