THE MISSING PIECE OF THE ARMOR OF GOD…OR IS IT REALLY “MISSING”
When was the last time your name was petitioned for in heaven?
When was the last time the enemy saw you as a threat?
“What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”
One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?”
No one likes conflict and we take all precautions to avoid such things whether to protect ourselves, friends, love ones and family, however there is a very real spiritual enemy that uses such things as our weaknesses, (read Job) to shatter our faith, separate us from our Lord and father and betray those that are within the members of God’s household, our spiritual family. Know who you are in Christ and make your calling sure. Fight the good fight of faith…13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. Oh, and by the way…there is no back piece to the armor of God, because we whom God foreknew, called, and predestined to be confirmed into the likeness of his Son, our Lord, weren’t called to retreat, God stands behind us in battle,“For you have not received a spirit of slavery that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba! Father!” So as we continue in this walk of faith, let us hold this truth before us and may God continue to protect and watch over you and your families. God bless.
REMEMBER!!! Go take a peek at the novel if you haven’t yet. “Battlefield of Angels” It’s a glimpse at spiritual warfare around us and rate this. Though fictional in content many of the events are real and a shadow of my life.
