Ephesians 6:10-20 (NIV)
The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powersof this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on prayingfor all the Lord’s people.
19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
FREEDOM ~ OF MIND
Begins when you turn your thoughts to positive
Every morning, we get ready for the day. Thoughts rush in our head of what is planned for today. Let us not to forget to put on the full armor of God. A way to protect our brains and our hearts. Stand firm is what the Bible says and grab onto the shield of faith. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. The bible is filled with hope, promises and new beginnings stories.
Being a Christian is, being Christ like ~ Not everyone who says they are a christian, is telling the truth. A true Christian takes on the character of God while working daily on themselves. It is a process of change during a lifetime. Not perfect people, but pressing forward daily and so much more. I won't give up on believing big or challenging myself put on the full armor of God daily. A daily choice and my prayers continue for you, your family and friends!
