WOW WOW WOW! I took the girls I disciple to God's Not Dead discussion on Stetson campus last night and it was amazing. Watch the previous post to see the final few minutes before question and answer. It was so powerful about the certainty of God's existence, the absolute unmistakable evidence that Jesus came and died for our sins, rose again and there is absolutely no question of this. The 2 men speaking are incredibly brilliant. It was awesome to see a room full of students listening, seeking and those who were uncertain had evidence of truth!!! WOW! SO AWESOME!!!
I am posting this incredible reminder and picture of what it means to armor up... As God's Girls.... we have every weapon we need and daily we are in a spiritual battle! Ephesians is a great book of the Bible to study. It truly strengthens our faith, encourages our relationships and shows us things we lack, and things to work on. Ephesians 6:10-18 reminds us:
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 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.
We know the devil exists and he schemes actively. Verse 12 tells us our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rules, against authorities and powers of this dark world and the spiritual forces of evil...
The question we must ask ourselves daily is "Are we putting on the armor of God ???
verse 13 commands us to put on the FULL armor of God...
WOW its amazing the the Armor of God has been given to us by our God, our Commander in Chief: laid out before us as a tool to protect and defend... He is calling us to armor up with the word of God and as the scripture above reminds us He has given us every weapon to use before we leave our homes....
Let this picture remind us of who we are and whose we are and to armor up before we leave the house.
The evil one can't even come close when we do.
Lets walk in the victory that Jesus won for us.
Please share your thoughts!! Have a blessed day!
