Throughout time, we have heard of battles fought. The Bible shares stories of people who God used to fight huge battles. What about the little battles that might not have been mention? Have you ever thought about the a person who wasn't named in the Bible and their story could be one of an overcomer too. Just like you and me on this journey of life. Nobody really knows the battles we might face inside our brains or even outside our lives.
I was reading Zechariah 4:6 ~ Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord. Let us remind ourself who is in charge and the spirit of the Lord remains the same as written in the Bible. Battles in life are real and the devil is real. The enemy of your soul doesn't want you go forward serving God and living a Christian life style. Each day we must put on the full armor of God.
Ephesians 6:10-18 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.
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.
Each of us are called by God to be used by him. Daily we have choices that model his example through out cities. I have met people who never knew who Jesus was or even heard a bible story. People who never stepped inside of a church and your example matters outside the church. We must continue to fight for what is right and stand up for the word of God. Spreading hope daily to others and living in the fullness of God. Go ahead and put on that full armor of God. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
