Dear Precious Friends
On this Magnificent Monday, I pray you are waking up to a new day embracing the gift of this day knowing we are more than overcomer's through Him who loves us.
Whether we recognize it or not, there is currently a war going on all around us. It’s a cosmic conflict of such ferocity, size, and scope that it makes all other wars pale in comparison. This is the battle being waged in the heavenly's, and it’s a battle God is calling you to wake up to. This wake-up call is being issued to Christian men and women, for the vast majority of us, though we know Christ and might have a pew reserved in church every Sunday, are nonetheless living defeated lives. We try and fail, and then try and fail again. No matter what we do, we can’t seem to live in the way the Bible describes the life of the Christian. We are plagued by anxiety, hang-ups, compulsions, and addictions. No more!
I have great news!!! God has already given the Christian everything needed to live in victory.
Because of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, victory is not only possible—it’s already been assured. His victory is our victory. All that’s left is for us to connect the visible, physical world with the victory already given to us in the invisible, spiritual world.
Amazingly, we aren’t fighting for victory; we are fighting FROM VICTORY!
“Our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.” Ephesians 6:12
The victory of Christ through the essential pieces of spiritual armor God has given us to wear. Ephesians 6:10-18 reminds us how to do this!!!
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.
Have an awesome "wake up, not today Satan, moving forward, overcoming, victory filled, determined, I can do all things through Christ Monday!!
