Ephesians 6:17-20 New International Version (NIV)
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 praying for 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.
Helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God
Daily there is a fight we are in and that's called life. So many changes and it takes determination to stay focused on what is right. The enemy of your soul will try everything to stop you. Sometimes it's in the silent things that sway us. Maybe thinking too much and the big wonder of life. Read about the full armor of God and apply it daily.
Ephesians 6:10-20 New International Version (NIV)
The Armor of God
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 powers of 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.
THE FIGHT ~
Is against powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil
Life can brings some struggles that we should let go of. I have found myself concerned over things that doesn't really matter. Sometimes the struggle is just me. I need to let go of things I can not change. It tends to be part of who I am and I am working on stopping this. There is no reason to play somethings over and over in my brain. I think I let something go and it pops back in the morning. I spend my morning time writing you, praying and seeking God's will for this day. Knowing that God is able to handle whatever I face, but I must keep the right attitude about situations. Have you ever just felt caught in between things? I sure have and doing the right thing is always right. Yet, it isn't always easy.
A new day is here and I purpose to put on the full armor of God this day! I hope you will too. Life is too short to go around a negative mountain. See the positive in your life. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
