Encouragement for the day:

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

 

Ephesians 6:13-17 – 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.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

 

It says in this passage to be strong in the Lord, putting on your full armor, to protect yourself against the schemes of the enemy.  It is important to remember that our battle isn’t against flesh and blood, but against the powers and principalities of darkness.  Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy – but God has come in power to set the captives free.

 

Take a couple of moments, grab a friend and put your armor on together.

 

 

 

 

 

Since we know that our battle isn’t with others, is it easier to forgive those that we see as wronging us?

 

 

 

 

 

Is there anyone that we need to make amends with?  If so, would you like to do that now?

 

 

 

 

 

Encouragement:  It is amazing that God equips us with the power and authority to come against that which comes to destroy!  Think about making this a morning ritual.  Call a friend, put it on together.  There is nothing better than starting our day with the protection/covering of our Daddy!
